12. Deflections of Beams and Shafts 12.1 THE ELASTIC CURVE

It is useful to sketch the deflected shape of the loaded beam, to visualize computed results and partially check the results. The deflection diagram of the longitudinal axis that passes through the centroid of each x-sectional area of the beam is called the elastic curve.

12. Deflections of Beams and Shafts 12.1 THE ELASTIC CURVE

Draw the moment diagram for the beam first before creating the elastic curve. Use beam convention as shown and established in chapter 6.1.

12. Deflections of Beams and Shafts 12.1 THE ELASTIC CURVE

For example, due to roller and pin supports at B and D, displacements at B and D is zero. For region of -ve moment AC, elastic curve concave downwards. Within region of +ve moment CD, elastic curve concave upwards. At pt C, there is an inflection pt where curve changes from concave up to concave down (zero moment).

12. Deflections of Beams and Shafts 12.1 THE ELASTIC CURVE

Moment-Curvature Relationship x axis extends +ve to the right, along longitudinal axis of beam. A differential element of undeformed width dx is located. axis extends +ve upwards from x axis. It measures the displacement of the centroid on xsectional area of element. A localized y coordinate is specified for the position of a fiber in the element. It is measured +ve upward from the neutral axis.

12. Deflections of Beams and Shafts 12.1 THE ELASTIC CURVE

Moment-Curvature Relationship Limit analysis to the case of initially straight beam elastically deformed by loads applied perpendicular to beams x axis and lying in the x- plane of symmetry for beams x-sectional area. Internal moment M deforms element such that angle between x-sections is d. Arc dx is a part of the elastic curve that intersects the neutral axis for each x-section. Radius of curvature for this arc defined as the distance , measured from center of curvature O to dx.

Moment-Curvature Relationship Strain in arc ds, at position y from neutral axis, is

12. Deflections of Beams and Shafts 12.1 THE ELASTIC CURVE

Moment-Curvature Relationship If material is homogeneous and shows linearelastic behavior, Hookes law applies. Since flexure formula also applies, we combing the equations to get 1 M (12 - 2) = EI = radius of curvature at a specific pt on elastic curve (1/ is referred to as the curvature). M = internal moment in beam at pt where is to be determined. E = materials modulus of elasticity. I = beams moment of inertia computed about neutral axis.

12. Deflections of Beams and Shafts 12.1 THE ELASTIC CURVE

Moment-Curvature Relationship EI is the flexural rigidity and is always positive. Sign for depends on the direction of the moment. As shown, when M is +ve, extends above the beam. When M is ve, extends below the beam.

12. Deflections of Beams and Shafts 12.2 SLOPE AND DISPLACEMENT BY INTEGRATION

Most engineering codes specify limitations on deflections for tolerance or aesthetic purposes. Slope of elastic curve determined from d/dx is very small and its square will be negligible compared with unity. Therefore, by approximation 1/ = d2 /dx2, Eqn 12-4 rewritten as d 2 M (12 - 5) = 2 EI dx Differentiate each side w.r.t. x and substitute V = dM/dx, we get d d 2 EI = V (x) (12 - 6) dx dx 2

Generally, it is easier to determine the internal moment M as a function of x, integrate twice, and evaluate only two integration constants. For convenience in writing each moment expression, the origin for each x coordinate can be selected arbitrarily. Sign convention and coordinates Use the proper signs for M, V and w.

Procedure for analysis Slope and elastic curve Once constants are evaluated and substituted back into slope and deflection eqns, slope and displacement at specific pts on elastic curve can be determined. The numerical values obtained is checked graphically by comparing them with sketch of the elastic curve. Realize that +ve values for slope are counterclockwise if the x axis extends +ve to the right, and clockwise if the x axis extends +ve to the left. For both cases, +ve displacement is upwards.

Procedure for analysis Elastic curve An inflection pt or change in curvature occurs when the moment if the beam (or M/EI) is zero.

Since moment-area theorems apply only between two tangents, attention should be given as to which tangents should be constructed so that the angles or deviations between them will lead to the solution of the problem. The tangents at the supports should be considered, since the beam usually has zero displacement and/or zero slope at the supports.

A member of any type is classified as statically indeterminate if the no. of unknown reactions exceeds the available no. of equilibrium eqns. Additional support reactions on beam that are not needed to keep it in stable equilibrium are called redundants. No. of these redundants is referred to as the degree of indeterminacy.

12.9 STATICALLY INDETERMINATE BEAMS AND SHAFTS: METHOD OF SUPERPOSITION

First, identify the redundant support reactions on the beam. Remove these reactions from the beam to get a primary beam that is statically determinate and stable and subjected to external load only. Add to this beam with a series of similarly supported beams, each with a separate redundant, then by principle of superposition, the final loaded beam is obtained. After computing the redundants, the other reactions on the beam determined from the eqns of equilibrium. This method of analysis is sometimes called the force method.

12.9 STATICALLY INDETERMINATE BEAMS AND SHAFTS: METHOD OF SUPERPOSITION

Procedure for analysis Elastic curve Specify unknown redundant forces or moments that must be removed from the beam in order to make it statically determinate and stable. Use principle of superposition, draw the statically indeterminate beam and show it to be equal to a sequence of corresponding statically determinate beams. The first beam (primary) supports the same external loads as the statically indeterminate beam, and each of the other beams added to the primary beam shows the beam loaded with a separate single redundant force or moment.

CHAPTER REVIEW The elastic curve represents the centerline deflection of a beam or shaft. Its shape can be determined using the moment diagram. Positive moments cause the elastic curve to concave upwards and negative moments cause it to concave downwards. The radius of curvature at any pt is determined from 1/ = M/EI. Eqn of elastic curve and its slope can be obtained by first finding the internal moment in the member as a function of x.

CHAPTER REVIEW If several loadings act on the member, then separate moment functions must be determined between each of the loadings. Integrating these functions once using EI(d2/dx2) = M(x) gives the eqn for the slope of the elastic curve, and integrating again gives the eqn for the deflection. The constants of integration are determined from the boundary conditions at the supports, or in cases where several moment functions are involved, continuity of slope and deflection at pts where these functions join must be satisfied.

CHAPTER REVIEW Discontinuity functions allow us to express the eqn of elastic curve as a continuous function, regardless of the no. of loadings on the member. This method eliminates the need to use continuity conditions, since the two constants of integration can be determined solely from the two boundary conditions.

CHAPTER REVIEW The moment-area method requires finding area segments under the M/EI diagram, or the moment of these segments about pts on the elastic curve. The method works well for M/EI diagrams composed of simple shapes, such as those produced by concentrated forces and couple moments. The deflection or slope at a pt on a member subjected to various types of loadings can be determined by using the principle of superposition. The table in the back of the book can be used for this purpose.

CHAPTER REVIEW Statically indeterminate beams and shafts have more unknown support reactions than available eqns of equilibrium. To solve them such problems, we first identify the redundant reactions, and the other unknown reactions are written in terms of these redundants. The method of integration or moment-area theorems can be used to solve for the unknown redundants. We can also determine the redundants by using the method of superposition, where we consider the continuity of displacement at the redundant.
