Unformatted text preview: 04Ch04.qxd 9/24/08 4:24 AM Page 355 355 SECTION 4.5 Shear-Force and Bending-Moment Diagrams Shear-Force and Bending-Moment Diagrams When solving the problems for Section 4.5, draw the shear-force and bending-moment diagrams approximately to scale and label all critical ordinates, including the maximum and minimum values. Probs. 4.5-1 through 4.5-10 are symbolic problems and Probs. 4.5-11 through 4.5-24 are numerical problems. The remaining problems (4.5-25 through 4.5-40) involve specialized topics, such as optimization, beams with hinges, and moving loads. P a P a A B Problem 4.5-1 Draw the shear-force and bending-moment diagrams for a simple beam AB supporting two equal concentrated loads P (see figure). L Solution 4.5-1 Simple beam Problem 4.5-2 A simple beam AB is subjected to a counterclockwise couple of moment M0 acting at distance a from the left-hand support (see figure). Draw the shear-force and bending-moment diagrams for this beam. M0 A B a L ...
