Mello/Georgia Tech Aerospace 8 BEGIN LECTURE 35 Euler- Bernoulli beam theory Historical note: The basic rela?onship sta?ng that the curvature of a beam is propor?onal the bending moment (8- 6) was first obtained by Jacob Bernoulli, although he obtained an Incorrect constant of propor?onality… in other words he didn’t get (EI)! The rela?onship was used later by Euler, who solved the ODE of the deflec?on curve for both large and small deflec?ons… Euler was the man. 4/9/13 M. Mello/Georgia Tech Aerospace 9 DIFFERENTIAL EQUATIONS OF THE BEAM DEFLECTION CURVE Here are the big results from last lecture: 1 d2 v curvature is the essenBally equal to the 2nd derivaBve of the = = (8- 5) beam profile for any material provided rotaBons are small ⇢ dx2 •  Next we recall from module 5 (stresses in beams) that curvature is given by: = 1 = M (8- 6) ⇢ EI •  Hence, d2 v M (8- 7) Note the flexural rigidity (EI) in the denominator and how it this dx 2 = EI controls curvature for a given bending moment •  (8- 7) IS REFERRED TO AS THE BENDING- MOMENT EQUATION •  If you know the bending moment M(x) then you can integrate twice and obtain the profile of the deformed beam! 4/9/13 M.
