Beams

structural members designed to support

Beams

straight long bars with constant cross
-
sectional areas

A simply supported beam is pinned at one end

and roller supported at

the other

A cantilevered beam is

fixed at one end and free

at the other

7.2
Shear and Moment
Equations and Diagrams

For actual design of a beam, apply

-

Internal shear force V and the bending moment
M analysis

-

Theory of mechanics of materials

-
Appropriate engineering code to determine
beam’s required cross
-
sectional area

Variations of V and M obtained by the method of
sections

Graphical variations of V and M are termed as
shear diagram and bending moment diagram

7.2
Shear and Moment
Equations and Diagrams

Internal shear and bending moment
functions generally discontinuous, or their
slopes will be discontinuous at points
where a distributed load changes or where
concentrated forces or couple moments
are applied

Functions must be applied for each
segment of the beam located between any

Internal normal force will not be
considered

7.2
Shear and Moment
Equations and Diagrams

Load applied to a beam act
perpendicular to the beam’s axis and
hence produce only an internal shear
force and bending moment

For design purpose, the beam’s
resistance to shear, and particularly to
bending, is more important than its
ability to resist a normal force

7.2
Shear and Moment
Equations and Diagrams

Sign Convention

To define a positive and negative shear
force and bending moment acting on the
beam

Positive directions are denoted by an
internal shear force that causes clockwise
rotation of the member on which it acts
and by an internal moment that causes
compression or pushing on the upper part
of the member

7.2
Shear and Moment
Equations and Diagrams

Sign Convention

A positive moment
would tend to bend the
member if it were
elastic, concave upwards

negative

Procedure for Analysis

Support Reactions

Determine all the reactive forces and
couple moments acting on the beam’

Resolve them into components acting
perpendicular or parallel to the beam’s
axis

Shear and Moment

Procedure for Analysis

Shear and Moment Reactions

Specify separate coordinates x having an origin
at the beam’s left end and extending to regions
of the beams between concentrated force and/or
couple moments or where there is no continuity

Section the beam perpendicular to its axis at
each distance x and draw the FBD of one of the
segments

Procedure for Analysis

Shear and Moment Reactions

V and M are shown acting in their positive sense

The shear V is obtained by summing the forces
perpendicular to the beam’s axis

The moment M is obtained by summing
moments about the sectioned end of the
segment

Procedure for Analysis

Shear and Moment Diagrams

Plot the shear diagram (V versus x) and the
moment diagram (M versus x)

If computed values of the functions describing V
and M are positive, the values are plotted above
the x axis, whereas negative values are plotted
below the x axis

Convenient to plot the shear and the bending
moment diagrams below the FBD of the beam

Shear diagram

internal shear force is always
positive within the shaft AB

Just to the right of B, the shear
force changes sign and remains
at constant value for segment
BC

Moment diagram

Starts at zero, increases linearly
to B and therefore decreases to
zero

diagrams is discontinuous at
points of concentrated force
ie, A, B, C

mathematical, arising from
the idealization of a
