Sample text

This picture of the variation of the shear forces along a beam is known as a shear force diagram. 14 that the shear forces, and hence the diagonal stresses generated within the section, are greatest near the supports while the horizontal forces generated by the bending moments are greatest near the centre of the beam. The shear force and bending moment diagrams are the fundamental pieces of information that a designer needs, to be able to design a beam since they provide the information from which the designer can calculate the internal forces and stresses at all points within the beam.

Just to clarify this point, since we have a distribution of stress over the section, it should be noted that a distributed stress has the same effect as a single concentrated force acting at the centroid of the distributed forces, and we wish to work with these equivalent concentrated forces. To do this we must establish their magnitude and where they act. The general equation for establishing the total compressive force is: Fc = ∫ byσydy where: Fc is the compressive force, by is the breadth of the section at a height y from the neutral axis and σy is the stress at a height y from the neutral axis.

In fact, for the rectangular section we are considering, the force can be calculated by inspection. If the stress is uniform over the whole of the upper part of the section, then the force equals the stress multiplied by the area over which it acts. Where the stress varies, the force is equal to the area over which the stresses act multiplied by the average stress. Since the distribution of the stress in the compressed part of the section is triangular, the average stress is half the maximum The elements of a structure and how they function 31 stress.
