You need to watch the videos for Week 2 before completing the following tasks

To gain FULL marks for Worksheets ALL workings MUST be shown.

2. State the three conditions of equilibrium in a 2-dimensional (x-y plane) frame system. How many

unknowns can we solve for using only these equations?

3. Three forces are applied to a brick wall sitting on a concrete strip footing as shown below. Using the

sign convention of anticlockwise moment being positive, calculate the resultant moment of these

forces,

10kN

20kN

3m and the resulting moments, will

be resisted by the concrete

footing supporting the wall, so

overall ∑ 𝑀𝑧 = 0

30kN

a) About A (Ans: -204kNm)

b) about B

c) About C

4. A beam supports a point load and a UDL as shown. Ignore the self-weight of the beam. Calculate

the reactions at A and B. (Ans: 38.33kN & 21.67kN)

Step 1: Draw the unknown reactions at A and B above, thereby creating a free body diagram (FBD).

Step 2: Draw a point load equivalent to the UDL at a point (where?) representing the resultant

magnitude of the point load = kN

Horizontal reaction at A = kN

Step 3: Take moments about A to calculate the vertical reaction at B (∑Mz @A=0):

Vertical reaction at B = kN

Vertical reaction at A = kN

Alternatively take moments about B now to calculate the vertical reaction at A (∑M z @B=0):

5. A cantilever beam is ‘fixed’ to a wall at ‘A’ and is subjected to two loads applied at Point C as shown.

Calculate the reactions at A. (Ans: -10kN, 20kN & 250kNm)

Step 1: Draw the reactions at A. (Note: draw your unknown reactions positive to the sign convention)

(Horizontal) reaction at A = kN

(Vertical) reaction at A = kN

Note: Moment = vertical force * horizontal distance and/or horizontal force * vertical distance

You need to decide about what point you will take moments. You can take moments about any point

(even the= vertical

moment moon!),orce

but the simplest point to take moments in this case is about point Why?

6. A moment of 25kNm is now applied to the loading at point C.

Recalculate all the reactions at A.

(Ans: MA = 275kNm) 20 kN

Step 1: ∑Fx = 0

(Horizontal) reaction at A = kN

Step 2: ∑Fy = 0

(Vertical) reaction at A = kN

Q: Did adding the moment effect the vertical and horizontal reactions calculate in Q5? Y / N

Q: If the 25kNm moment was moved to point B would the reactions change? Y/N

Q: If the vertical 20kN force was moved to point B would the reactions change? Y/N

Q: If the horizontal 10kN force was moved to point B would the reactions change? Y/N

In relation to the latter two questions above, The Principle of Transmissibility states that a force can be

applied at any point on its line of action without a change to its external effects.

Systems with Internal pins

When there are internal pins in a beam system, more than three reactions are necessary to achieve

equilibrium. To solve for these reactions it is necessary to consider at least two different free body

diagrams (FBD), i.e. the entire beam system, a free body diagram to the right or left of the internal pin.

7. A beam with three supports having an internal pin at D shown in the following figure is subject to a

vertical force of 300 kN at B and a UDL of 30 kN/m along DF.

Determine the reactions at A, C and E and the internal forces acting at pin D. (Ans: Ay = 110kN, Cy =

270kN, Ey = 160kN)

30 kN/m

Step 1: Create a FBD of the entire beam by drawing all the support reactions on the diagram above.

Note: There are more than three unknown reactions in this structure.

Step 2: Consider the FBD of the entire structure and solve for the horizontal reaction using ∑Fx = 0.

Step 3: Consider a FBD of the entire structure and derive the equations ∑Fy = 0 and ∑Mz@A.

Q: Can you solve directly for all the reactions using these equations? Y / N

Q: Would taking moments about another support point in this FBD help to solve for the reactions? Y / N

Try it if you’re not sure.

Step 4: Add all forces to the following diagram to create FDBs either side of the internal pin.

Note: It doesn’t matter what direction you draw the unknown forces in at the internal pin as long as

they are equal and opposite on both sides.

Considering the FBD right of the internal pin at D calculate the internal member forces at D and the

reaction force at E using equilibrium.

Dy = Ey= Dx =

a) using the equations derived in Step 3.

Ay = Cy =

b) alternatively by considering the FBD left of the pin in Step 4 above and applying the known

values of the forces found at D.

8. Referring again to the Figure in Q7, a point load of 200 kN is now applied directly to the pin at D in

addition to the original loading. Position the 200kN load on the diagram below as well as all other

forces to create two FBDs. Using the diagram calculate the reactions at E & C (A: 160kN, 570 kN)

NOTE: If a point load or moment is applied at an internal pin, when creating a FBD either side of the

pin, ALWAYS position the force/moment on the FB that does not rely on this force/moment for its

stability.

Ey = Cy =

Note: Alternatively, once force Ey is known consider a FBD of the entire system to find Ay and Cy.

9. The system with two pin supports, and having an internal pin at C, is subject to two horizontal

forces as shown. Determine the reactions at A and B. (Ans: -3.33kN; 3.33kN; 17.5kN; -27.5kN)

40 kN 2m

Step 1: Draw all the support reactions on the diagram of the structure. Note: It does not really matter

which direction you draw these reactions on the diagram but it is suggested they be drawn positive to

the sign convention.

Step 2: Consider the structure as a whole and take moments about A. This will result in an equation in

terms of the two unknown reactions at B.

Step 3: Draw below a free body diagram (FBD) right of the internal pin at C. Take moments at C,

∑Mz@C = 0. This will result in an equation in terms of the two unknown reactions at B. Solve this

equation and the one found in Step 2, for the reaction at B.

Bx = By =

Step 4: Use the answers from Step 3 and apply ∑Fx = 0 and ∑Fy = 0 to the entire beam system and solve

for the reactions at A.

Ax = Ay =

Note: Instead of considering a FBD of the whole structure in Step 4 you could solve for the values of the

internal forces at the pin at C and then consider a FBD left of point C. Try doing this in your own time.
