# Beams and frames

Beams are slender members used for supporting transverse loading. Beams with cross sections symmetric with respect to loading are considered.
M = y I = / E d 2 v / dx 2 = M / EI

## Potential energy approach

Strain energy in an element of length dx is
dU = 1 dAdx 2A

1 M2 2 y dA dx = 2 2 EI A
2 y dA is the moment of inertia I A

## The total strain energy for the beam is given by-

1 2 2 U = EI d v / dx dx 20

## Potential energy of the beam is then given by-

1 2 2 ' = EI d v / dx dx pvdx pm vm M k vk 20 m k 0
Where-p is the distributed load per unit length -pm is the point load at point m. -Mk is the moment of couple applied at point k -vm is the deflection at point m -vk is the slope at point k.

Galerkins Approach
p M V+dV M+dM V dx Here we start from equilibrium of an elemental length. dV/dx = p dM/dx =V
d 2 v / dx 2 = M / EI
2 d2 d v 2 p=0 EI dx dx 2

## For approximate solution by Galerkins approach-

2 d d v EI 2 p dx = 0 2 dx dx

## is an arbitrary function using same basic functions as v

Integrating the first term by parts and splitting the interval 0 to L to (0 to xm), (xm to xk) and (xk to L) we getd vd d d v EI 2 dx pdx + EI 2 2 dx dx dx dx 0 0 0

The shape functions for interpolating v on an element are defined in terms of from 1 to 1. The shape functions for beam elements differ from those defined earlier. Therefore, we define Hermite Shape Functions

## Each Hermite shape function is of cubic order represented by-

H i = ai + bi + ci 2 + d i 3 K i = 1,2,3,4
The condition given in following table must be satisfied.

H1 =-1 1 =1 0

## Finding out values of coefficients and simplifying,

## Hermite functions can be used to write v in the form-

dv v( ) = H1v1 + H 2 d

dv + H 3v3 + H 4 d 1

BOUNDARY CONSIDERATIONS Let Qr = a.single point BC Following Penalty approach, add 1/2C(Qr-a)2 to C represents stiffness which is large in comparison with beam stiffness terms. C is added to Krr and Ca is added to Fr to getKQ = F These equations are solved to get nodal displacements. Ca C Dof =(2i-1) C Ca Dof = 2i

## Shear Force and Bending MomentWe have,

dM d 2v M = EI 2 V = dx dx and v = Hq

V1 = R1

V2 = -R3

M1 = -R2

M 2 = R4
