Statically Indeterminate Beams

Can you guess how we find the “extra”
reactions?

Internal Reactions in Beams

At any cut in a beam, there are 3 possible
internal reactions required for equilibrium:

normal force,

shear force,

bending moment.

Finding Internal Reactions

Pick left side of the cut:

Find the sum of all the vertical forces to the
left of the cut, including V. Solve for shear, V.

Find the sum of all the horizontal forces to the
left of the cut, including N. Solve for axial
force, N. It’s usually, but not always, 0.

Sum the moments of all the forces to the left
of the cut about the point of the cut. Include
M. Solve for bending moment, M

Pick the right side of the cut:

Same as above, except to the right of the cut.

Example:
Find the internal reactions at
points indicated. All axial force reactions
are zero. Points are 2

Draw Some Conclusions

The magnitude of the shear at a point
equals the slope of the moment diagram at
that point.

The area under the shear diagram
between two points equals the change in
moments between those two points.

At points where the shear is zero, the
moment is a local maximum or minimum.
