TYPES OF BEAM

TYPES OF BEAM

FIRSTLY WHAT IS A BEAM ? In a structure, horizontal member which takes transverse load (load parpendicular to the length of the beam) in addition to other loading is called BEAM. In engineering structures like bridges, beam is one of the important structural member. In trusses and frames, pin-joined members take only tensile or compressive load, twisting load, etc., to take all types of load, i.e transverse load, tensile load, compressive load, twisting load, etc,. CLASSIFICATION OF BEAMS : Beams are classifed depending upon the type of support, as shown below: SIMPLY SUPPORTED BEAM: As the name indicates, it is simplest of all the beams which is supported by a hing at one end a roller at other end. SIMPLY SUPPORTED BEAM WITH OVERHANG: Here, one end or both ends of simply supported beam is projected beyond the suports, which means that the portion of beam extends beyond the hinge and roller supports. CANTILEVER BEAM: A beam which is fixed at one end and free at other end...

SYSTEM OF FORCES

SYSTEM OF FORCES

System of forces is a simple term defined to a group of forces. It can be classified into following types  Collinear Forces : The forces which are passing leniarly are called colliner forces. Non - Collinear Forces : The forces which are not passing in leniarly are called Non - collinear forces. Co - Planer Forces  : In this the forces are passing through the same plane. Non - Coplaner Forces :  These forces do not move in a same plane. Concurrent Forces : The forces which are passing through the same point. Non - Concurrent Forces : The forces which donot passes through same point. Non - Coplaner Non - Concurrent Forces : The forces which does not passes through the same plane and same point. Non - Coplaner Concurrent Forces : The forces which does not passes through the same plane but meetiong at one point. ...

FORCE

What is force actually.... Force is defined as an agent which produces or tends to produce; destroying or tends to destroy the motion of a body Units of force is newton (N) . ---> A force while acting on the body may change the motion of a body, rise to the internal stress in a body  (N/m^2). Force is a vector quantity. Force is used to indecate a force, a torque, a moment etc. Lets move on to SYSTEM OF FORCES......
