The Force Method of Analysis: Beams

Version 2 CE IIT, Kharagpur

Instructional Objectives

After reading this chapter the student will be able to

1. Solve statically indeterminate beams of degree more than one.

2. To solve the problem in matrix notation.

3. To compute reactions at all the supports.

4. To compute internal resisting bending moment at any section of the continuous beam.

8.1

Introduction

In the last lesson, a general introduction to the force method of analysis is given. Only, beams, which are statically indeterminate to first degree, were considered. If the structure is statically indeterminate to a degree more than one, then the approach presented in the previous example needs to be organized properly. In the present lesson, a general procedure for analyzing statically indeterminate beams is discussed.

8.2 Formalization of Procedure

Towards this end, consider a two-span continuous beam as shown in Fig. 8.1a. The flexural rigidity of this continuous beam is assumed to be constant and is taken as EI . Since, the beam is statically indeterminate to second degree, it is required to identify two redundant reaction components, which need be released to make the beam statically determinate.

In fact, the subscript 1 and represent, locations of redundant reactions

released. In the present case

and subsequent lessons of this module, the deflections and the reactions are taken to be positive in the upward direction. However, it should be kept in mind that the positive sense of the redundant can be chosen arbitrarily. The deflection of the point of application of the redundant should likewise be considered positive when acting in the same sense.

For writing compatibility equations at B and , it is required to know deflection of
