DEFORMATION OF STATICALLY
DETERMINATE STRUCTURE

OBJECTIVES:
This chapter will discuss various methods for determining the
deflection and slope at specific points on determinate beam. The
methods include the Double Integration method and Macaulay
method. Also a graphical technique called the moment area
method.

3.1 Introduction

When the load applied on the beam, it is often helpful to sketch the
deflected shape before the slope or displacement at any point on a beam
can be determined.

## However it is necessary to know how the slope or displacement is

restricted at various types of supports. The zero slope and zero
displacement occur at all fixed supports and zero displacement occurs at
all pin and roller support. Figure 4.1 shows an example of the elastic

beam.

(5) Deflection equation

## 1. Draw Free Body Diagram of System

2. Section beam, if necessary
3. Draw Free Body Diagram of each section
4. Use equation 1 if q(x) is known. Use equation 3 if M(x) is known
5. Integrate to solve for y(x)
6. Use boundary condition to solve the value of C.

## Mechanics of Materials 116

To solve the problems using Double Integration and Macaulay Method, the
boundary condition(B.C) has to be identified;

1)

3.4 Moment Area Method

## This method is suitable to calculate the slope of tangents or the vertical

deviation-deflection at selected points on a beam. It requires finding area
segments under the M/EI diagram on the elastic curve.

The method works well for M/EI diagrams composed of simple shapes
which produced by concentrated loads and couple moments.

The procedure for beam analysis using the moment area method can be
summarized as follows;
a) Calculate the support reactions
b) Draw the M/EI diagram
c) Select the reference tangent, t either
- a known point with zero slope
- determine tangential deviation of one support and the other
and finding the angle.
