Horizontal thrust at one end is taken as redundant force
But, the condition of equilbrium are insufficient to find the
horizontal thrust of this arch
Horizontal thrust is redundant and it has to be determined
Strain energy concepts may be used here to find horizontal
thrust
Castigliano's Second Theorem states that
Displacement of due
a force
()=
/
Here, force (F) is horizontal thrust
Horizontal displacement
_=/
Here, both supports are hinged, so that horizontal displacement is
zero

_=0

And hence,

/=0

## g moments about other supports

EXAMPLE

A parabolic arch hinged at the ends, has a aspan of 60 m and a rise of 12 m. A concentrated load of 8
kN acts at 15 m from the left hinge. The second moment of area varies at the secant of the inclination
of the area axis. Calculate the horizontal thrust and the reaction at the hinge. Also calculate the
horizontal thrust and the reaction at the hinge. Also, calculate the net bending moment at the section.

SOLUTION
First Step
