Page 4 Before proceeding to apply equilibrium to analyze for the support reactions it is important to identify the potential categories of problem that may exist: Three Problem Categories 1.) Dynamic: Number of rigid body degrees of freedom (DOF) > number of reactions Body Moves Example FBD 2 reactions 3 DoF two components of translation, one axis of rotation Dynamic (Note, in 3-D there would be 6 degrees of freedom - 3 components of translation, 3 axes

Unformatted text preview: of rotation) Page 5 2. Statically Determinate Number of rigid body number of reactions Degrees of Freedom = 3 D of F as before, but now 3 reactions Implication Can determine reactions and internal forces purely from Equilibrium considerations 3. Statically Indeterminate Number of rigid body Degrees of freedom < Number of reactions 4 Reactions, 3 D o F (as before) Implication Cannot determine reactions and internal forces from equilibrium but also need to include deformation of the structure - constitutive relations. Material does make a difference for internal and external reactions. (see block 3)...
