Introduction
• Goal - Analysis and design of beams

## • Beams - structural members supporting loads at

various points along the member

## • Applied loads result in internal forces consisting

of a shear force (from the shear stress
distribution) and a bending couple (from the
normal stress distribution)

## • Normal stress is often the critical design criteria

## Shear and Bending Moment Diagrams

• Determination of maximum normal and
shearing stresses requires identification
of maximum internal shear force and
bending couple.

## • Shear force and bending couple at a point

are determined by passing a section
through the beam and applying an
equilibrium analysis on the beam portions
on either side of the section.

## Design of Prismatic Beams for Bending

• The largest normal stress is found at the surface where the
maximum bending moment occurs.
M max c M max
m  
I S

## • A safe design requires that the maximum normal stress be

less than the allowable stress for the material used. This
criteria leads to the determination of the minimum
acceptable section modulus.
 m   all
M max
S min 
 all

## • Among beam section choices which have an acceptable

section modulus, the one with the smallest weight per unit
length or cross sectional area will be the least expensive
and the best choice.
