Lesson 16 & 17. SHEAR FORCE & BENDING MOMENT
Module 4. Beams and bending moments Lesson 16, 17 SHEAR FORCE & BENDING MOMENT 16.1 Introduction Shear force and bending moment diagrams are analytical tools used in conjunction with structural analysis in structural design, determining the value of shear force and bending moment at a given point of an element. Using these diagrams the type and size of a member of a given material can be determined. 16.2 Shear Force Shear force at a point or at a given section is defined as the algebraic sum of vertical forces (Including the reactions) either to the left or right to the sections. Shear force is different at different sections sections. To know the variation of shear force we draw shear force diagrams. Fig. 16.1 Shear force Shear force may be considered to be +Ve if it is acting in the upward direction of the left hand side of the section (or) when it is acting in the downward direction on the right hand side (or) section & viceversa. 16.3 Bending Moment Bending moment at a section of beam is the algebraic sum of moment of forces to the right or left of the section. It Acts in a plane as axis (in axis). Bending moments either to the left (or) right of the section. Sign convention for shear force & bending moment. Bending moment is said to be +ve when it is acting in the C.W (clock wise) as L.H.S (Left hand side) of the section (or) when it is acting in the A.C.W direction on the R.H.S as the section & vice versa.

Reaction RA is given by the height S.F.D. SHEAR FORCE at XX, S.F_{XX}=W Moment at XX, M_{XX}=W_{X } At B, X=0, (S.F)_{B}=W M_{B}=0 At A, X=L, (S.F)_{A}=W M_{A}=WL 16.4.2 Cantilever beam is subjected to the moment at the free end Fig. 16.4 Cantilever beam M_{x}=M M_{B}=M (S.F)_{XX}=0 At B, M_{B}=M SF_{B}=0, SF_{A}=0 Whenever there is point load acting there is a sudden change in S.F.D Similarly whenever a concentrated moment is acting there is a sudden change is S.F.D In presence of point load there is a sudden change in S.F.D at that corresponding point. In presence of concentrated moment there is a sudden change in B.M.D at that corresponding point. 16.4.3 Cantilever beam subjected to the moment at the middle point of the beam M_{X}=M M_{A}=M M_{C}=M M_{B}=M

Fig. 16.6 Uniform distribution load At section XX SF_{XX}=WX M_{XX}=WX^{2}/2 At A, X=L SF_{A}=WL M_{A}=WL^{2}/2 At B SF_{B}=0 M_{B}=0 16.4.5 Cantilever beam subjected to uniform varying load
Fig. 16.7 Varying load B.M variation is always more than first order of S.F variation Always cantilever beams we get first order type parabola and simply supported beam we get second order type parabola. At XX (SF)_{X}=WX^{2}/2L M_{XX}=WX^{3}/6L At B, X=0 (SF)_{B}=0 M_{B}=0 At A, x=L SF_{A}=WL/2 M_{A}=WL^{2}/6 16.5 S.F.D and B.M.D for Simply Supported Beams 16.5.1 Simply supported beam subjected to point load at mid section Fig. 16.8 S.F.D and B.M.D R_{A}=W/2, R_{C}=W/2 AB: (x: 0 to L/2) (SF)_{XX}=+W/2 (BM)_{XX}=(W/2)X SF_{A}=W/2 BM_{A}=0 SF_{B}=W/2, M_{B}=WL/4 BC (X: L/2L) (SF)_{XX}=W/2W=W/2 (BM)_{XX}=W/2(X)W(XL/2) SF_{B}=W/2 M_{B}=WL/4 SF_{C}=W/2 M_{C}=WL/2WL/2=0 16.5.2 Simply supported beam carrying uniform distributed loadW – Point load ω – Uniformly distributed load 16.5.3 Simply supported beam with point load at a distance ‘a’ from point A.
Taking moments of forces at C of the beam the beam about A. Fig. 16.10 Simply supported beam with point load R_{b} .l = Wa. R_{b} = Wa/l R_{a} = WWa/l = W(la)/l R_{a} = Wb/l { a+b = l} For any section between A&C Shear force S.F_{x} = R_{a} = Wb/l. For any section b/w C&B S.F_{x} = +V_{b} = + (Wa/l). At any section between A&C distance x from At any section b/w A&C distance x from B.M_{x} = +(Wb /1) .x {B.M = Bending moment} X = 0 → M_{x} = 0 X = a → M_{x} = (Wab/l) Hence bending moment increases uniformly from zero at the end A to Wab/l at C and B.M will decreases uniformly from Wab/l at C to zero at the end B.
