APPLICATIONS How does the shear and moment change along the length of the beam? These beams are used to support the roof of this gas station.
SHEAR AND MOMENT DIAGRAMS A complete picture of the internal forces on the members is needed for the design of structural members Shear and moment diagrams show the variation of the shear force and bending moments along the length of a structural member What about normal force diagrams?

Unformatted text preview: shear force and bending moments along the length of a structural member What about normal force diagrams? SIGN CONVENTION STEPS FOR DETERMINING V AND M DIAGRAMS 1. Determine reactions of the beam 2. Decompose the forces acting on the beam in parallel and perpendicular forces acting on the beam 3. Set a coordinate system where x starts at the left hand side of the structural member 4. Calculate the shear force and bending moment at different sections of the beam 5. Plot your results EXAMPLE Given : The loading on the beam. Find : The shear and bending diagram. Plan : Follow the procedure!! GROUP PROBLEM SOLVING Given : The loading on the beam. Find : The shear and bending diagrams. Plan : Follow the procedure!! NEXT CLASS Problems...
