Unformatted text preview: 16.21 Techniques of Structural Analysis and Design Spring 2004 Unit #7 (continued)- Concepts of work and energy Strain energy and potential energy of a beam Ra´ul Radovitzky March 2, 2005 Figure 1: Kinematic assumptions for a beam ¯ Kinematic assumptions for a beam: From the figure: AA = u 3 ( x 1 ). ¯ ¯ Assume small deﬂections: B B , BB = u 3 + du 3 . CC = u 3 ( x ) + ∼ 1 u 1( x 1 , x 3 ). Assume planar sections normal to the neutral axis remain planar after deformation . Then: u 3 = u 3 ( x 1 ) (1) du 3 u 1 ( x 1 , x 3 ) = − x 3 (2) dx 1 u 3 ( x 1 ) is the only primary unknown of the problem (3) From these kinematic assumptions we can derive a theory for beams.
