## Shear & Moment in Beams

DEFINITION OF A BEAM

A beam is a bar subject to forces or couples that lie in a plane containing the longitudinal of the bar. According to determinacy, a beam may be determinate or indeterminate. STATICALLY DETERMINATE BEAMS Statically determinate beams are those beams in which the reactions of the supports may be determined by the use of the equations of static equilibrium. The beams shown below are examples of statically determinate beams.

STATICALLY INDETERMINATE BEAMS If the number of reactions exerted upon a beam exceeds the number of equations in static equilibrium, the beam is said to be statically indeterminate. In order to solve the reactions of the beam, the static equations must be supplemented by equations based upon the elastic deformations of the beam. The degree of indeterminacy is taken as the difference between the umber of reactions to the number of equations in static equilibrium that can be applied. In the case of the propped beam shown, there are three reactions R1, R2, and M and only two equations (M = 0 and Fv = 0) can be applied, thus the beam is indeterminate to the first degree (3 2 = 1).

together with a couple M to hold the left portion of the bar in equilibrium under the action of R1 and wx. The couple M is called the resisting moment or moment and the force V is called the resisting shear or shear. The sign of V and M are taken to be positive if they have the senses indicated above.

SOLVED PROBLEMS INSTRUCTION: Write shear and moment equations for the beams in the following problems. In each problem, let x be the distance measured from left end of the beam. Also, draw shear and moment diagrams, specifying values at all change of loading positions and at points of zero shear. Neglect the mass of the beam in each problem.

To draw the Shear Diagram: (1) In segment AB, the shear is uniformly distributed over the segment at a magnitude of 30 kN. (2) In segment BC, the shear is uniformly distributed at a magnitude of 26 kN. (3) In segment CD, the shear is uniformly distributed at a magnitude of 24 kN. To draw the Moment Diagram: (1) The equation MAB = 30x is linear, at x = 0, MAB = 0 and at x = 1 m, MAB = 30 kNm. (2) MBC = 26x 56 is also linear. At x = 1 m, MBC = 30 kNm; at x = 4 m, MBC = 48 kNm. When MBC = 0, x = 2.154 m, thus the moment is zero at 1.154 m from B. (3) MCD = 24x + 144 is again linear. At x = 4 m, MCD = 48 kNm; at x = 6 m, MCD = 0.

To draw the Moment Diagram: (1) MAB = 114x 5x2 is a second degree curve for segment AB; at x = 0, MAB = 0; at x = 2 m, MAB = 208 kNm.

## RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN LOAD, SHEAR, AND MOMENT

The vertical shear at C in the figure shown in previous section (Shear and Moment Diagram) is taken as VC = (Fv)L = R1 wx where R1 = R2 = wL/2 VC =

wL wx 2

The moment at C is

wL x x wx 2 2 wLx wx 2 MC = 2 2
MC = (MC) = If we differentiate M with respect to x:

wL dx dM w dx = 2x 2 dx dx 2 dx wL dM = wx = shear dx 2
thus,

dM =V dx
Thus, the rate of change of the bending moment with respect to x is equal to the shearing force, or the slope of the moment diagram at the given point is the shear at that point.

## Chapter 04 Shear and Moment in Beams

195
www.mathalino.com

## Differentiate V with respect to x gives

Thus, the rate of change of the shearing force with respect to x is equal to the load or the slope of the shear diagram at a given point equals the load at that point.

PROPERTIES OF SHEAR AND MOMENT DIAGRAMS The following are some important properties of shear and moment diagrams:
1. The area of the shear diagram to the left or to the right of the section is equal to the moment at that section. 2. The slope of the moment diagram at a given point is the shear at that point. 3. The slope of the shear diagram at a given point equals the load at that point. 4. The maximum moment occurs at the point of zero shears. This is in reference to property number 2, that when the shear (also the slope of the moment diagram) is zero, the tangent drawn to the moment diagram is horizontal. 5. When the shear diagram is increasing, the moment diagram is concave upward. 6. When the shear diagram is decreasing, the moment diagram is concave downward.

SIGN CONVENTIONS The customary sign conventions for shearing force and bending moment are represented by the figures below. A force that tends to bend the beam

196

www.mathalino.com

Shear and Moment Equations and Diagrams; Relation between Load, Shear, and Moment; Moving Loads
downward is said to produce a positive bending moment. A force that tends to shear the left portion of the beam upward with respect to the right portion is said to produce a positive shearing force.

Positive Bending

Negative Bending

Positive Shear

Negative Shear

An easier way of determining the sign of the bending moment at any section is that upward forces always cause positive bending moments regardless of whether they act to the left or to the right of the exploratory section.

## SOLVED PROBLEMS INSTRUCTION:

Without writing shear and moment equations, draw the shear and moment diagrams for the beams specified in the following problems. Give numerical values at all change of loading positions and at all points of zero shear. (Note to instructor: Problems 403 to 420 may also be assigned for solution by semi graphical method describes in this article.)

## Chapter 04 Shear and Moment in Beams

www.mathalino.com

From the previous section, we see that the maximum moment occurs at a point of zero shears. For beams loaded with concentrated loads, the point of zero shears usually occurs under a concentrated load and so the maximum moment. Beams and girders such as in a bridge or an overhead crane are subject to moving concentrated loads, which are at fixed distance with each other. The problem here is to determine the moment under each load when each load is in a position to cause a maximum moment. The largest value of these moments governs the design of the beam.

SINGLE MOVING LOAD For a single moving load, the maximum moment occurs when the load is at the midspan and the maximum shear occurs when the load is very near the support (usually assumed to lie over the support).
P Position for maximum shear L/2 L P Position for maximum moment L/2

Mmax =

PL and Vmax = P 4

TWO MOVING LOADS For two moving loads, the maximum shear occurs at the reaction when the larger load is over that support. The maximum moment is given by
Pb > Ps Pb d Ps

226

www.mathalino.com

Shear and Moment Equations and Diagrams; Relation between Load, Shear, and Moment; Moving Loads
Mmax =

( PL Ps d ) 2 4 PL

where Ps is the smaller load, Pb is the bigger load, and P is the total load (P = Ps + Pb).

THREE OR MORE MOVING LOADS In general, the bending moment under a particular load is a maximum when the center of the beam is midway between that load and the resultant of all the loads then on the span. With this rule, we compute the maximum moment under each load, and use the biggest of the moments for the design. Usually, the biggest of these moments occurs under the biggest load.
The maximum shear occurs at the reaction where the resultant load is nearest. Usually, it happens if the biggest load is over that support and as many a possible of the remaining loads are still on the span. In determining the largest moment and shear, it is sometimes necessary to check the condition when the bigger loads are on the span and the rest of the smaller loads are outside.

When the midspan is midway between Wr and R, the front wheel Wf will be outside the span (see figure). In this case, only the rear wheel Wr = 1800 lb is the load. The maximum moment for this condition is when the load is at the midspan. R1 = R2 = (1800) R1 = 900 lb Maximum moment under Wr MTo the left of rear wheel = 7R1 MTo the left of rear wheel = 7(900) MTo the left of rear wheel = 6300 lbft Maximum moment under Wf MR1 = 0 14R2 = 4.3R 14R2 = 4.3(3000) R2 = 921.43 lb MTo the right of front wheel = 4.3R2 MTo the right of front wheel = 4.3(921.43) MTo the right of front wheel = 3962.1 lbft Thus, Mmax = MTo the left of rear wheel Thus, Mmax = 6300 lbft
