Unformatted text preview: Module 13: Centroid and Center of Gravity
November 15, 2010 Module Content:
1. Center of gravity, center of mass, and centroid are similar concepts which describe speciﬁc loca=ons in a body. The share similar approaches to their calcula=on.
2. Centroid of an area is par=cularly important for structural analysis, because we oYen use it to describe the cross sec=on of a beam.
3. Composite bodies are analyzed using a par=cle discre=za=on. Module Reading, Problems, and Demo:
Reading: Chapter 9
Problems: Fund. Prob. 9.8, Prob. 9.54

1 Introducing Chapter 9
Centroid and CG
• the center of gravity of a body is the loca=on through which the resultant force (“weight”) of the body acts MAE 2300 Sta=cs © E. J. Berger, 2010 13
2 Review: Center of Mass of a Par=cle System
• say we had a system of par=cles, n of them, and we wanted to ﬁnd the center of mass • this would be a summa=on process, over both force and moment MAE 2300 Sta=cs © E. J. Berger, 2010 13
3 Review: Center of Mass of a Par=cle System
• say we had a system of par=cles, n of them, and we wanted to ﬁnd the center of mass • this would be a summa=on process, over both force and moment force balance MAE 2300 Sta=cs © E. J. Berger, 2010 13
3 Review: Center of Mass of a Par=cle System
• say we had a system of par=cles, n of them, and we wanted to ﬁnd the center of mass • this would be a summa=on process, over both force and moment force balance

6 Example: Centroid of an Area
• when we write the centroid integral, we need to think carefully about how we write dV (volume) or dA (area) • consider the examples below... MAE 2300 Sta=cs © E. J. Berger, 2010 13

9 Theory: Composite Bodies
• composite bodies have complicated geometries which are typically built up from simpler shapes to form useful shapes for speciﬁc applica=ons • in engineering, the basic building blocks are usually circles and rectangles • in the analysis, we treat each simple shape as a par=cle MAE 2300 Sta=cs © E.
