DEFLECTION OF BEAMS

INTRODUCTION:

In all practical engineering applications, when we use the different components, normally we have to operate

them within the certain limits i.e. the constraints are placed on the performance and behavior of the

components. For instance we say that the particular component is supposed to operate within this value of

stress and the deflection of the component should not exceed beyond a particular value.

In some problems the maximum stress however, may not be a strict or severe condition but there may be the

deflection which is the more rigid condition under operation. It is obvious therefore to study the methods by

which we can predict the deflection of members under lateral loads or transverse loads, since it is this form

of loading which will generally produce the greatest deflection of beams.

The conjugate beam method is an extremely versatile method for computation of deflections in beams. The

relationships between the loading, shear, and bending moments are given by

(4.7)

where M is the bending moment; V is the shear; and w ( x ) is the intensity of distributed laod.

Similarly, we have the following

(4.8)

A comparison of two set of equations indicates that if M / EI is the loading on an imaginary beam, the

resulting shear and moment in the beam are the slope and displacement of the real beam, respectively. The

imaginary beam is called as the “conjugate beam ” and has the same length as the original beam.

There are two major steps in the conjugate beam method. The first step is to set up an additional beam, called

"conjugate beam,” and the second step is to determine the “ shearing forces ” and “ bending moments ” in

the conjugate beam.

The loading diagram showing the elastic loads acting on the conjugate beam is simply the bending-moment

diagram of the actual beam divided by the flexural rigidity EI of the actual beam. This elastic load is

downward if the bending moment is sagging.

For each existing support condition of the actual beam, there is a corresponding support condition for the

conjugate beam. Table 4.1 shows the corresponding conjugate beam of different types of actual beams. The

actual beam as well as the conjugate beam are always in static equilibrium condition .

This slope is positive or anti-clockwise if the “shearing force ” is positive — to rotate the beam element

anti-clockwise — in beam convention . The deflection of (the centerline of) the actual beam at any point is

equal to the “bending moment” of the conjugate beam at the corresponding point. This deflection is

downward if the “bending moment ” is positive — to cause top fiber in compression — in beam convention

. The positive shearing force and bending moment are shown below in Figure 4.7.

Table 4.1 Real and Conjugate beams for different structures

SIGN CONVECTION:

The following sign convention should be adopted:

1. Loading on the conjugate beam: The loading on the conjugate beam is equal to the M/EI

diagram of the real beam. This loading is also known as the elastic weight. The loading or elastic

weight act downloads if the M/EI diagram is positive and upwards if M/EI diagram is negative. If

however, M/EI diagram is partly positive and partly negative, the elastic weight or the loading will

act downward for the positive portion of the diagram and upward for the negative portion of the

M/EI portion.

2. Slope of the real beam: The slope of the real beam will be clockwise if the S.F is positive and

anti clockwise is the S.F is negative.

3. Deflection of the real beam: the deflection of the real beam will be downward (or positive) if the

B.M at the corresponding point of the conjugate beam is positive and upward if the B.M is

negative.

Example 4.6 Determine the slope and deflection of point A of the cantilever beam AB of length L and

uniform flexural rigidity E. A concentrated force P is applied at the free end of beam.

Solution:

The conjugate beam of the actual beam is shown in Figure 4.8(b). A linearly varying distributed upward

elastic load with intensity equal to zero at A and equal to PL/EI at B. The free-body diagram for the conjugate

beam is shown in Figure 4.8(c). The reactions at A of the conjugate beam are given by

The slope at A , and the deflection at the free end A of the actual beam in Figure 4.8(d) are respectively, equal to the

“shearing force” and the “bending moment” at the fixed end A of the conjugate beam in Figure 4.8(d).

Note that points downward because causes tension in bottom fiber of the beam at A (i.e. sagging moment) .

Example 4.7 Determine the slope at A and deflection of B of the beam shown in Figure 4.9(a) using the conjugate beam method.

Solution: The vertical reaction at A in the real beam is given by

The corresponding conjugate beam and loading acting on it are shown in Figure 4.9(b). The loading on the beam varies parabolically

The slope at A , in the original beam will be equal to the shear force at A in the conjugate beam, thus,

(clockwise direction)

The deflection of B in the real beam will be equal to the bending moment at B in conjugate beam i.e.

(downward direction)

Example 4.8 Determine the deflection at the free end of the beam shown in Figure 4.10 using conjugate beam method and

Solution:

(a) Conjugate beam method

The corresponding conjugate beam and loading are shown in Figure 4.10(b). The loading is upward linearly distributed

value of at B .

Taking moment about point B, the vertical reaction at A in the conjugate beam is given by

(sagging type)

Consider a beam member (refer Figure 4.29) subjected to temperature gradient over the depth of beam such that

where = temperature at the top of the beam; and = temperature at the bottom of the beam.

The deflection of the beam due to temperature variation is shown in Figure 4.29(b). It is assumed that temperature varies

linearly through the depth, d and is the coefficient of thermal expansion of the material.

Consider a small element of length dx . The strain at top and bottom of the small elements are

The equation (4.24) can be used for finding out the bending deflection in beams due to temperature variation.

If the beam is restrained from rotation, the moment induced in the beam will be given by

CASTIGLIANO’ S THEOREM :

Strain energy techniques are frequently used to analyze the deflection of beam and structures. Castigliano's

theorem were developed by the Italian engineer Alberto castigliano in the year 1873, these theorems are

applicable to any structure for which the force deformation relations are linear

Consider a loaded beam as shown in figure

Let the two Loads P1 and P2 produce deflections Y1 and Y2 respectively strain energy in

the beam is equal to the work done by the forces.

Let the Load P1 be increased by an amount DP1. Let DP1 and DP2 be the corresponding

changes in deflection due to change in load to DP1.

Suppose the increment in load is applied first followed by P1 and P2 then the resulting

strain energy is

or upon taking the limit as DP1 approaches zero [ Partial derivative are used because the

starin energy is a function of both P1 and P2 ]

For a general case there may be number of loads, therefore, the equation (6) can be

written as

The statement of this theorem can be put forth as follows; if the strain energy of a linearly

elastic structure is expressed in terms of the system of external loads. The partial

derivative of strain energy with respect to a concentrated external load is the deflection of

the structure at the point of application and in the direction of that load.

In a similar fashion, castigliano's theorem can also be valid for applied moments and

resulting rotations of the structure

Where

Mi = applied moment

qi = resulting rotation

structure are changed by a small amount ddi. While all other displacements are held

constant the increase in strain energy can be expressed as

Where

It may be seen that, when the displacement di is increased by the small amount dd ;

workdone by the corresponding force only since other displacements are not changed.

The work which is equal to Piddi is equal to increase in strain energy stored in the

structure

The above relation states that the partial derivative of strain energy w.r.t. any

displacement di is equal to the corresponding force Pi provided that the strain is expressed

as a function of the displacements.

INFLUENCE LINES

So far in this course we have been dealing with structural systems subjected to a specific set of loads. However, it is not necessary

that a structure is subjected to a single set of loads all of the time. For example, the single-lane bridge deck in Figure 6.1 may be

subjected to one set of a loading at one point of time (Figure 6.1a) and the same structure may be subjected to another set of

loading at a different point of time. It depends on the number of vehicles, position of vehicles and weight of vehicles. The variation of

load in a structure results in variation in the response of the structure. For example, the internal forces change causing a variation in

stresses that are generated in the structure. This becomes a critical consideration from design perspective, because a structure is

designed primarily on the basis of the intensity and location of maximum stresses in the structure. Similarly, the location and

magnitude of maximum deflection (which are also critical parameters for design) also become variables in case of variable loa ding.

Thus, multiple sets of loading require multiple sets of analysis in order to obtain the critical response parameters .

Figure 6.1 Loading condition on a bridge deck at different points of time

Influence lines offer a quick and easy way of performing multiple analyses for a single structure. Response parameters such

as shear force or bending moment at a point or reaction at a support for several load sets can be easily computed using

influence lines.

This is also another very useful technique in classical structural analysis. Influence lines are plotted for

various structural effects like axial forces, reactions, shear forces, moments and thrust etc. As structural

members are designed for maximum effects, ILD’s help engineer decide the regions to be loaded with live

load to produce a maxima at a given section.

“An influence line is a graphical representation of variation of a particular structural effect at a given section

for all load positions on its span.”]

Influence Lines for beam Reactions:

ILD’s for reactions in case of simple beams and compound beams (determinate beams resting over several

supports) can be drawn by using the already described procedure. Consider a simple beam with a single

load sitting at any moment of time as shown

When X = L (load at A); Ra = P and Rb = 0 (by putting limits in above expressions)

Instead of maximum co-efficients equal to P it is costomary to have them equal to 1 so that these could be

evaluated by the product of loads and respective ordinates and these diagrams become valid for several

loads.

In structural analysis, normally we develop the methods by considering simple cases and some generalized

conclusions are drawn which can then be applied to more complicated cases. So consider the following

simple beam wherein a moving load (right to left) occupies the position shown at any instant of time.

Using left-up and write-down as sign convention for positive shear force.

For all load positions to right of point C, the shear force for at C (Vc) is equal to + Ra.

Vc = Ra

It means that for load position between point B and C, the Shape of ILD for SF at C will be the same as the

shape of ILD for + Ra.

For all load positions to left of point C, the shear force at C (Vc) is equal to − Rb.

Vc = − Rb

It means that for load position between point A and C, the shape of ILD for SF at C will the same as shape

of ILD for −Rb. Knowing that positive ILD is drawn above the reference line and negative ILD is drawn

below the reference line, we obtain the ILD for Vc as shown below with the help of ILD’s for reactions

(Ra1 − Rb)

At X=0, load is at B and Vc is zero. At x=b, load is at C and Vc = + Ra = PbL or bL if P=1.

The ordinates aL and bL can be obtained by using similar triangles. Now inspect the ILD for Vc. For a

right to left advance of load system, Vc keeps on increasing till the “leading load is at the section”, when

leading load just crosses the section, Vc drops by the magnitude of load and this process continues. So we

can write that for maximum SF at a section, “the load should be at that section”. This is the first criterion of

calculation of Vmax. Now the question comes to mind that which load among the moving load system

should be placed at the section? To address this question, we have noted, that change in SF at a section,

ΔV, is equal to change in Ra (ΔRa) minus the load leaving the Section. (Pn)

Any load which reverses this expression, should be brought back and placed at that section to realize the

maximum SF at that section. So a change in the sign of above expression can be regarded as the second

criterion for maximum shear force at a section. It can also be shown that loads entering or leaving the span

as a result of any particular advance do not affect the above expression very significantly. The above

method is called the statical method.

Again we consider the simple beam under the action of a simple moving load as shown. Let it be required

to construct ILD for Mc.

It means that for portion BC, the shape of ILD for Mc is the same as the shape of ILD for Ra multiplied by

distance a. If the load is between points A and C

It means that for portion AC, the shape of ILD for Mc is the same as the shape of ILD for Rb multiplied by

b.

At X = L; Load at A; Mc = 0

Similarly, influence lines can be constructed for any other support reaction or internal force in the beam. However, one should

note that equilibrium equations will not be sufficient to obtain influence lines in indeterminate structures, because we cannot

solve for the internal forces/support reactions using only equilibrium conditions for such structures.

In this section, we will illustrate the use of influence lines through the influence lines that we have obtained in Section 6.2. Let us

consider a general case of loading on the simply supported beam (Figure 6.4a) and use the influence lines to find out the

.

response parameters ( , and ) for their loading. We can consider this loading as the sum of three different

loading conditions, (A), (B) and (C) (Figure 6.4b), each containing only one externally applied force

Figure 6.4 Application of influence lines for a general loading: (a) all the loads, and

(b) the general loading is divided into single force systems

For loading case (A), we can find out the response parameters using the three influence lines. Ordinate of an influence

line gives the response for a unit load acting at a certain point.

Therefore, we can multiply this ordinate by the magnitude of the force to get the response due to the real force at that

point. Thus

Similarly, for loading case (B):

By the theory of superposition, we can add forces for each individual case to find the response parameters for the

original loading case (Figure 6.4a). Thus, the response parameters in the beam AB are:

One should remember that the method of superposition is valid only for linear elastic cases with small displacements

only. So, prior to using influence lines in this way it is necessary to check that these conditions are satisfied.

It may seem that we can solve for these forces under the specified load case using equilibrium equations directly, and

influence lines are not necessary. However, there may be requirement for obtaining these responses for multiple and

more complex loading cases. For example, if we need to analyse for ten loading cases, it will be quicker to find only

three influence lines and not solve for ten equilibrium cases.

The most important use of influence line is finding out the location of a load for which certain response will have a

maximum value. For example, we may need to find the location of a moving load (say a gantry) on a beam (say a gantry

girder) for which we get the maximum bending moment at a certain point. We can consider bending moment at

point D of Example 6.3, where the beam AB becomes our gantry girder. Looking at the influence line of , one can

say that will reach its maximum value when the load is at point D .

Introduction

In previous lessons, we have studied the development of influence lines for beams loaded

with single point load, UDL and a series of loads. In similar fashion, one can construct

the influence lines for the trusses. The moving loads are never carried directly on the

main girder but are transmitted across cross girders to the joints of bottom chord.

Following section will explain load transmission to the trusses followed by the influence

lines for the truss reactions and influence lines for truss member forces.

Bridge Truss Floor System

A typical bridge floor system is shown in Figure 40.1. As shown in Figure, the loading on

bridge deck is transferred to stringers. These stringers in turn transfer the load to floor

beams and then to the joints along the bottom chord of the truss.

Front view

It should be noted that for any load position; the truss is always loaded at the joint.

Influence lines for truss support reaction

Influence line for truss reactions are of similar to that a simply supported beam. Let us

assume that there is truss with overhang on both ends as shown in Figure 40.2. In this

case, the loads to truss joints are applied through floor beams as discussed earlier. These

influence lines are useful to find out the support, which will be critical in terms of

maximum loading.

Bridge truss

The influence lines for truss reactions at A and B are shown in below figure

Influence lines for truss member force can be obtained very easily. Obtain the ordinate

values of influence line for a member by loading each joint along the deck with a unit

load and find member force. The member force can be found out using the method of

joints or method of sections. The data is prepared in tabular form and plotted for a

specific truss member force. The truss member carries axial loads. In the present

discussion, tensile force nature is considered as positive and compressive force nature is

considered as negative.

Principle of Virtual Work

Consider a structural system subjected to a set of forces ( … referred as P force)

under stable equilibrium condition as shown in Figure 4.11(a). Further, consider a small

element within the structural system and stresses on the surfaces caused by the P forces are

shown in

Figure 4.11(b) and referred as .

Let the body undergoes to a set of compatible virtual displacement . These displacements are

imaginary and fictitious as shown by dotted line. While the body is displaced, the real forces acting on the

body move through these displacements. These forces and virtual displacements must satisfy the principle

of conservation of energy i.e.

(4.8)

(4.9)

This is the principle of virtual work.

If a system in equilibrium under a system of forces undergoes a deformation, the work done by the

external forces ( P ) equals the work done by the internal stresses due to those forces, ( ).

In order to use the above principle for practical applications, we have to interchange the role of the forces and

displacement. Let the structure acted upon by a virtual force is subjected to real displacements then the Eq. (4.9)

can be written as

(4.10)

This is the principle of complimentary virtual work and used for computing displacements. Consider a structure

shown in Figure 4.12(a) and subjected to P force and it is required to find the displacement of point C in the

direction specified. First apply a virtual force at C in the required direction. Next apply the external (real)

loads acting on the structures as shown in Figure 4.12(a) with the virtual force remain in the position. The

displacement of C in the required ditection be and the internal elements deform by an amount . Using Eq.

(4.10)

(4.11)

The left hand side of Eq. (4.11) denotes the external work done by the virtual force moving through the real

dispolacement . On the other hand, the right hand side of Eq. (4.11) represents the internal work done by the

virtual internal element forces d f moving through the displacement .

Since is arbitrary and for convenience let =1 (i.e. unit load). The Eq. (4.11) can be re-written as

(4.12)

where f denotes the internal force in the members due to virtual unit load.

The right hand side of Eq. (4.12) will directly provide the displacement of point C due to applied external forces.

This method is also known as unit load method.

Similarly for finding out a rotation, at any point of a loaded structure, the corresponding Eq. (4.12) will take

place as

(4.13)

where denotes the internal force in the members due to virtual unit moment applied in the direction of

interested

Consider a pin-jointed structure as shown in Figure 4.13 and subjected to external force P 1 , P 2 and P 3 . Let

the vertical displacement of point C , is required. Under the action of the real external load, let the axial

force in typical member be and therefore, the deformation of the member ( L and AE are

the length and axial rigidity of typical member).

Apply a unit vertical load at C and substituting in Eq. (4.12) leads to

The basic steps to be followed for finding the displacements of the pin-jointed structure are

1. Compute the axial force in various members (i.e. ) due to applied external forces.

2. Compute the axial force in various members (i.e. ) due to unit load applied in the direction of

required displacement of the point.

5. The axial force shall be taken as positive if tensile and negative if compressive.

6. The positive implies that the desired displacement is in the direction of applied unit load

and negative quantity will indicate that the desired displacement is in the opposite direction of the

applied unit laod.

Example 4.9 Find the horizontal and vertical deflection at joint C of the pin-jointed frame shown in Figure 4.14. AE is

constant for all members.

Solution: Calculate forces i.e. force in various members of the truss due to the applied loading. These can be obtained by

considering the equilibrium of various joints as marked in Figure 4.14(b).

The computation of for two desired displacements of pin-jointed frame are shown in Table 4.2.

In order to find out the vertical displacement of C of the beam shown in Figure 4.16(a), apply a

unit load as shown in Figure 4.16(b).

The internal virtual work is considered mainly due to bending and caused due to internal moments

under going the rotation due to the applied loading. (internal virtual work done by shearing

forces and axial forces is small in comparison to the bending moments and hence ignored). Since the

where is the moment due to applied loading, the Eq. (4.12) for the

displacement of C will take a shape of

(4.15)

The basic steps to be followed for finding the displacement or slope of a beams and frames are summarized as

2. Compute the bending moment (i.e. ) due to unit load applied in the direction of required

displacement or slope.

3. Compute the integral over the entire members of the beam or frame which will provide

the desired displacement.

4. The bending moment shall be taken as positive if sagging and negative if hogging (in case of beams).

5. The positive implies that the desired displacement is in the direction of applied unit load

and negative quantity will indicate that the desired displacement is in the opposite direction of the applied

unit load.

Example 4.11 Determine the slope and deflection of point A of the cantilever beam AB with length L and constant flexural

rigidity EI.

Solution: Deflection under the Load - Apply a vertical unit load at point A of the beam as shown in Figure 4.17(b). Consider

any point X at a distance of x from A ,

Slope at the free end: Apply a unit couple at point A of the beam as shown in Figure 4.17(c). Consider any point X at a

distance of x from A .

Example 4.12. Determine mid-span deflection and end slopes of a simply supported beam of span L carrying a udl w per unit

length.

Solution: Mid-span deflection : Apply a unit load at mid span as shown in Figure 4.18(b). Consider any point X at a distance of

x from A

(0< x < L )

( L /2< x < L )

End slopes : Applying a unit couple at A as shown in Figure 4.18(c). Consider any point X at a distance of x from A

(0< x < L

The slope at A is given by

Example 4.14. Determine horizontal deflection of C and slope at A of a rigid-jointed plane frame as shown in Figure 4.20(a).

Both members of the frame have same flexural rigidity, EI .

Consider AB : ( x measured A )

Consider BC : ( x measured C )

Consider AB : ( x measured A )

Consider BC : ( x measured C )

The concepts of strain, strain-displacement relationships are very useful in computing energy-related quantities

such as work and strain energy. These can then be used in the computation of deflections. In the special case,

when the structure is linear elastic and the deformations are caused by external forces only, (the complementary

energy U * is equal to the strain energy U ) the displacement of structure in the direction of force is expressed

by

(4.16)

This equation is known as Castigliano's theorem. It must be remembered that its use is limited to the calculation of

displacement in linear elastic structures caused by applied loads. The use of this theorem is equivalent to the

virtual work transformation by the unit-load theorem.

Calculation of Strain Energy

When external loads are applied on an elastic body they deform. The work done is transformed into elastic strain energy

U that is stored in the body. We will develop expressions for the strain energy for different types of loads.

Axial Force : Consider a member of length L and axial rigidity AE subjected to an axial force P applied gradually as

shown in the Figure 4.24. The strain energy stored in the member will be equal to the external work done by the axial

force i.e

(4.17)

Bending Moment: Consider a beam of length L and flexural rigidity EI subjected to a general loading as shown in

Figure 4.25. Consider a small differential element of length, dx . The energy stored in the small element is given by

Shear Force: The strain energy stored in the member due to shearing force is expressed by

(4.20)

where V is the shearing force; and is the shearing rigidity of the member.

Twisting Moment: The strain energy stored in the member due to twisting moment is expressed by

(4.21)

where T is the twisting moment; and GJ is the torsional rigidity of the member.

Thus,

The deflection of point A,

Maxwell-Betti Law of real work is a basic theorem in the structural analysis. Using this theorem, it will be

established that the flexibility coefficients in compatibility equations, formulated to solve indeterminate structures

by the flexibility method, form a symmetric matrix and this will reduce the number of deflection computations. The

Maxwell-Betti law also has applications in the construction of influence lines diagrams for statically indeterminate

structures. The Maxwell-Betti law, which applies to any stable elastic structure (a beam, truss, or frame, for

example) on unyielding supports and at constant temperature, states:

The deflection of point A in direction 1 due to unit load at point B in direction 2 is equal in the

magnitude to the deflection of point B in direction 2 produced by a unit load applied at A in

direction 1

The Figure 4.31 explains the Maxwell-Betti Law of reciprocal displacements in which, the

n order to prove the reciprocal theorem, consider the simple beams shown in Figure 4.32.

Let a vertical force at point B produces a vertical deflection at point A and at point B as

shown in Figure 4.32(a). Similarly, in Figure 4.32(b) the application of a vertical force at point A

produces a vertical deflections and at points A and B , respectively. Let us evaluate the total

Three hinged Arch

Introduction

In case of beams supporting uniformly distributed load, the maximum bending moment

increases with the square of the span and hence they become uneconomical for long span

structures. In such situations arches could be advantageously employed, as they would

develop horizontal reactions, which in turn reduce the design bending moment.

For example, in the case of a simply supported beam shown in Fig. 32.1, the bending moment

below the load is 16/3PL. Now consider a two hinged symmetrical arch of the same span and

subjected to similar loading as that of simply supported beam. The vertical reaction could be

calculated by equations of statics. The horizontal reaction is determined by the method of

least work. Now the bending moment below the load is 3PL/16 - Hy. It is clear that the

bending moment below the load is reduced in the case of an arch as compared to a simply

supported beam. It is observed in the last lesson that, the cable takes the shape of the loading

and this shape is termed as funicular shape. If an arch were constructed in an inverted

funicular shape then it would be subjected to only compression for those loadings for which

its shape is inverted funicular

Since in practice, the actual shape of the arch differs from the inverted funicular shape or the

loading differs from the one for which the arch is an inverted funicular, arches are also

subjected to bending moment in addition to compression. As arches are subjected to

compression, it must be designed to resist buckling. Until the beginning of the 20th century,

arches and vaults were commonly used to span between walls, piers or other supports. Now,

arches are mainly used in bridge construction and doorways. In earlier days arches were

constructed using stones and bricks. In modern times they are being constructed of reinforced

concrete and steel.

A structure is classified as an arch not based on its shape but the way it supports the lateral

load. Arches support load primarily in compression. For example in Fig 32.3b, no horizontal

reaction is developed. Consequently bending moment is not reduced. It is important to

appreciate the point that the definition of an arch is a structural one, not geometrical.

Type of arches

There are mainly three types of arches that are commonly used in practice: three hinged arch,

two-hinged arch and fixed-fixed arch. Three-hinged arch is statically determinate structure

and its reactions / internal forces are evaluated by static equations of equilibrium. Two-

hinged arch and fixed-fixed arch are statically indeterminate structures. The indeterminate

reactions are determined by the method of least work or by the flexibility matrix method. In

this lesson three hinged arch is discussed.

Analysis of three-hinged arch

In the case of three-hinged arch, we have three hinges: two at the support and one at the

crown thus making it statically determinate structure. Consider a three hinged arch subjected

to a concentrated force P as shown in Fig 32.5.

There are four reaction components in the three-hinged arch. One more equation is required

in addition to three equations of static equilibrium for evaluating the four reaction

components. Taking moment about the hinge of all the forces acting on either side of the

hinge can set up the required equation. Taking moment of all the forces about hinge A ,

yields

Applying ∑Fx = 0 to the whole structure gives

For a simply supported beam of the same span and loading, moment under the loading is

given by,

For the particular case considered here, the arch construction has reduced the moment by

66.66 %.

Example 1:

A three-hinged parabolic arch of uniform cross section has a span of 60 m and a rise of

10 m. It is subjected to uniformly distributed load of intensity 10 kN/m as shown in Fig.

32.6 Show that the bending moment is zero at any cross section of the arch

Solution:

Reactions:

Taking moment of all the forces about hinge A , yields

From ∑Fx = 0 one could write, Hb = 450 kN .

The shear force at the mid span is zero.

Bending moment

The bending moment at any section x from the left end is,

In other words a three hinged parabolic arch subjected to uniformly distributed load is not

subjected to bending moment at any cross section. It supports the load in pure compression.

Can you explain why the moment is zero at all points in a three-hinged parabolic arch?

Example 2:

Fig 32.7. Calculate the location and magnitude of maximum bending moment in

the arch.

Reactions:

Taking moment of all the forces about hinge B leads to,

Bending moment

Now making use of the condition that the moment at hinge C of all the forces left

of hinge C is zero gives,

The maximum positive bending moment occurs below D and it can be calculated

by taking moment of all forces left of D about D

A three-hinged system consists of two plates, connected together by means of a hinge with

two hinged supports resting to the ground. When the plates consist of curved bars the system

is called three-hinged arch; in the case these bars are straight or L shaped, the system will be

called a three-hinged bent or frame. The distance L between the centres of the hinges at the

supports is called the span of the arch. The distance f from the centre of the intermediate

hinge to the straight line passing through the ground hinges is called its rise - f.

The reactions of three-hinged arch will be fully determined by four parameters, for instance,

the amount of the reactions Ah, Av, Bh and Bv. These may be obtained from the three

equilibrium equations of external forces acting upon the system and from a forth equation,

expressing that the moment of all the external forces acting to the left or to the right of the

intermediate hinge about its centre must be zero.

Influence lines for support reactions

1. Vertical reactions

Let us assume that a three-hinged arch carries a unit load F=1 applied at a distance x from the

left hand support, and let us write the equilibrium equation of the moments of all the forces

about the support joints A and B (support pins) (Fig. 1).

The obtained expressions for Av and Bv are absolutely the same as those for the reactions of

a simply supported beam with length l. This means that the influence lines for Av and Bv do

not differ from the influence lines for the support reactions of the respective simple beam.

2. Horizontal reactions

In addition the forth equation can be used, expressing that the bending moment at the hinge C

equals to zero, or in other words, the sum of moments of all the external forces acting to the

right or to the left of this hinge about its centre is zero. Let us assume that the unit force

moves from point A to the hinge C, and let us consider the equilibrium of the right hand

portion of the arch.

Now, let us consider the case when the unit load is located between points C and B, and let us

write the equilibrium of moments of the left hand part about point C:

It should be pointed out that the expressions Bv 2⋅l and A lv 1⋅ coincide with the

expressions of influence lines for the bending moment in equivalent simply supported beam

for section c, below the intermediate hinge. In other words:

Cables

Introduction

Cables and arches are closely related to each other and hence they are grouped in this course

in the same module. For long span structures (for e.g. in case bridges) engineers commonly

use cable or arch construction due to their efficiency. In the first lesson of this module, cables

subjected to uniform and concentrated loads are discussed. In the second lesson, arches in

general and three hinged arches in particular along with illustrative examples are explained.

In the last two lessons of this module, two hinged arch and hingeless arches are considered.

Structure may be classified into rigid and deformable structures depending on change in

geometry of the structure while supporting the load. Rigid structures support externally

applied loads without appreciable change in their shape (geometry). Beams trusses and

frames are examples of rigid structures. Unlike rigid structures, deformable structures

undergo changes in their shape according to externally applied loads. However, it should be

noted that deformations are still small. Cables and fabric structures are deformable structures.

Cables are mainly used to support suspension roofs, bridges and cable car system. They are

also used in electrical transmission lines and for structures supporting radio antennas. In the

following sections, cables subjected to concentrated load and cables subjected to uniform

loads are considered.

The shape assumed by a rope or a chain (with no stiffness) under the action of external loads

when hung from two supports is known as a funicular shape. Cable is a funicular structure. It

is easy to visualize that a cable hung from two supports subjected to external load must be in

tension (vide Fig. 31.2a and 31.2b). Now let us modify our definition of cable. A cable may

be defined as the structure in pure tension having the funicular shape of the load.

As stated earlier, the cables are considered to be perfectly flexible (no flexural stiffness) and

inextensible. As they are flexible they do not resist shear force and bending moment. It is

subjected to axial tension only and it is always acting tangential to the cable at any point

along the length. If the weight of the cable is negligible as compared with the externally

applied loads then its self weight is neglected in the analysis. In the present analysis self

weight is not considered.

Consider a cable ACDEB as loaded in Fig. 31.2. Let us assume that the cable lengths L1, L2,

L3, L4and sag at C,D,E ( hc, hd, he) are known. The four reaction components at A and B,

cable tensions in each of the four segments three sag values: a total of eleven unknown

quantities are to be determined. From the geometry, one could write two force equilibrium

equations ) at each of the point A,B,C,D and E i.e. a total of ten

equations and the required one more equation may be written from the geometry of the cable.

For example, if one of the sag is given then the problem can be solved easily. Otherwise if the

total length of the cable S is given then the required equation may be written as

Cable subjected to uniform load.

Cables are used to support the dead weight and live loads of the bridge decks having long

spans. The bridge decks are suspended from the cable using the hangers. The stiffened deck

prevents the supporting cable from changing its shape by distributing the live load moving

over it, for a longer length of cable. In such cases cable is assumed to be uniformly loaded.

Consider a cable which is uniformly loaded as shown in Fig 31.3a. Let the slope of the cable

be zero at A. Let us determine the shape of the cable subjected to uniformly distributed load.

Consider a free body diagram of the cable as shown in Fig 31.3b. As the cable is uniformly

loaded, the tension in the cable changes continuously along the cable length. Let the tension

in the cable at end of the free body diagram be T and tension at the end of the cable be . The

slopes of the cable at and are denoted by q0 m n Δ+ TT

m n θ and θ + Δθ respectively.

Applying equations of equilibrium, we get

Integrating equation (31.3b) we get

At support

i.e. horizontal component of the force along the length of the cable is constant.

Integrating equation 31.3a,

Equation 31.5 represents a parabola. Now the tension in the cable may be

evaluated from equations 31.4a and 31.4b. i.e,

Due to uniformly distributed load, the cable takes a parabolic shape. However due to its own

dead weight it takes a shape of a catenary. However dead weight of the cable is neglected in

the present analysis.

Example 31.1

Determine reaction components at A and B, tension in the cable and the sag YB and YE of

the cable shown in Fig. 31.4a. Neglect the self weight of the cable in the analysis.

Since there are no horizontal loads, horizontal reactions at A and B should be the

same. Taking moment about E, yields

Now horizontal reaction H may be evaluated taking moment about point of all forces left of

C.

To determine the tension in the cable in the segment AB , consider the equilibrium of joint A

(vide Fig.31.4b).

Segment bc

Applying equations of equilibrium,

right support by 2 m and the lowest point on the Cable C is located below left support by 1

m. Evaluate the reactions and the maximum and minimum values of tension in the cable.

Now taking moment about A of all the forces acting on the cable, yields

Indeterminate structures

Introduction

A structure in which the laws of statics are not sufficient to determine all the unknown forces

or moments is said to be statically indeterminate. Such structures are analyzed by writing the

appropriate equations of static equilibrium and additional equations pertaining to the

deformation and constraints known as compatibility condition. The statically indeterminate

structures are frequently used for several advantages. They are relatively more economical in

the requirement of material as the maximum bending moments in the structure are reduced.

The statically indeterminate are more rigid leading to smaller deflections. The disadvantage

of the indeterminate structure is that they are subjected to stresses when subjected to

temperature changes and settlements of the support. The construction of indeterminate

structure is more difficult if there are dimensional errors in the length of members or location

of the supports. This chapter deals with analysis of statically indeterminate structures using

various force methods.

method

The force method is used to calculate the response of statically indeterminate structures to

loads and/or imposed deformations. The method is based on transforming a given structure

into a statically determinate primary system and calculating the magnitude of statically

redundant forces required to restore the geometric boundary conditions of the original

structure. The force method (also called the flexibility method or method of consistent

deformation ) is used to calculate reactions and internal forces in statically indeterminate

structures due to loads and imposed deformations.

The basic steps in the force method are as follows:

(a) Determine the degree of static indeterminacy, n of the structure.

(b) Transform the structure into a statically determinate system by releasing a number of

static constraints equal to the degree of static indeterminacy, n. This is accomplished by

releasing external support conditions or by creating internal hinges. The system thus formed

is called the basic determinate structure.

(c) For a given released constraint j, introduce an unknown redundant force corresponding

to the type and direction of the released constraint.

d) Apply the given loading or imposed deformation to the basic determinate structure . Use

suitable method to calculate displacements at each of the released constraints in the basic

determinate structure.

(e) Solve for redundant forces ( j =1 to n ) by imposing the compatibility conditions of the

original structure. These conditions transform the basic determinate structure back to the

original structure by finding the combination of redundant forces that make displacement at

each of the released constraints equal to zero.

It can thus be seen that the name force method was given to this method because its primary

computational task is to calculate unknown forces , i.e. the redundant forces R1 through Rn

.

Selection of the basic determinate structure

There is no limit to the number of different basic determinate structure that can be generated

for a given structure. The choice of structure, however, must ensure that the primary system

is stable. In addition, it is recommended that the basic determinate structure be chosen to

minimize computational effort and maximize computational accuracy.

It is not sufficient merely to release the correct number of statically constraints in generating

a basic determinate structure. Care must be taken to ensure that the basic determinate

structure is stable. This fact is explained in the Table 5.1 where any arbitrary release of

constraint can result into the unstable basic determinate structure.

work

The computational effort required in calculating the response of a given structure using the

force method can vary significantly depending on the choice of basic determinate structure.

In this regard, there are two issues to consider:

1. Select the basic determinate structure such as the displacements can be easily computed

(i.e. converting it into simple structure).

2. Select the basic determinate structure to maximize the number of flexibility coefficients

equal to zero.

These issues are illustrated in the following examples.

Consider a fixed beam as shown in Figure 5.8(a). The beam is non-prismatic with degree of

indeterminacy 2. Three basic determinate structures are shown in Figures 5.8(b), (c) and (d).

Among the three structures the computation effort will be minimum for the beam as in Figure

5.8(b) as the resulting basic determinate structure consists of two uniform cantilever beams.

The another structure under consideration is a four-span continuous beam as shown in Figure

5.9. The degree of static indeterminacy of the beam is 3. Two basic determinate structures are

illustrated. On the left-hand side of the figure, the basic determinate structure is formed by

releasing moment in the beam at the three interior supports. On the right-hand side of the

figure, the basic determinate structure is formed by releasing the vertical reaction at the three

interior supports.

For each basic determinate structure, bending moments (bending moment in the basic

determinate structure due to applied loading) (due to ), (due to ), and (due to ) are plotted.

For the basic determinate structure on the left-hand side of the diagram, all integrations

required for calculating the deflections can be easily performed using integration tables. In

addition, for the left-hand side of the diagram, several deflection coefficients are zero. On the

right-hand side, however, all coefficients are nonzero. The choice of basic determinate

structure on the left allowed the influence of a given redundant force to be restricted to a

relatively small portion of the structure (two spans in this particular case). For the structure

on the right-hand side, the influence of a given redundant force R j is felt throughout the

structure. It can be concluded that the basic determinate structure on the left-hand side is

preferable because it reduces the computational effort.

Example 5.7 Analyze the continuous beam shown in Figure 5.10(a) using the force method.

Also, draw the bending moment diagram. EI is constant for entire beam.

Solution: The degree of static indeterminacy = 3–2 =1. The moment at B is taken as

redundant R and the basic determinate structure will be then two simply supported beams as

shown in Figure 5.10(b).

The continuous beams are very common in the structural design and it is necessary to

develop simplified force method known as three moment equation for their analysis. This

equation is a relationship that exists between the moments at three points in continuous beam.

The points are considered as three supports of the indeterminate beams. Consider three points

on the beam marked as 1, 2 and 3 as shown in Figure 5.25(a). Let the bending moment at

these points is , and and the corresponding vertical displacement of these points are , and ,

respectively. Let and be the distance between points 1 – 2 and 2 – 3, respectively.
