Unformatted text preview: where the value of the function is known b) if there are two different x coordinate systems, the moment must be the same at the same point on each x location c) slope and deflection must be the same at each x d) theta(1)=theta(2) and v(1)=v(2) Primary Beam a) remove the redundant support reactions just to get the primary beam b) statically determinate, and stable and is subjected to only the external load Redundant reactions a) additional support reactions that are not needed to keep the beam or shaft in equilibrium are called redundants, number of redundants is referred to as the degree of indeterminancy Critical load a) the maximum axial load that a column can support when it is on the verge of buckling is called the critical load Effective Length a) distance between the zero moment points on a column can be found using an effective length factor...
