SHEAR FORCE AND BENDING MOMENT

Definition:

Shear force: The force which tend to shear off the section and is obtained as the algebraic sum of all forces including the reactions acting normal to the axis of the beam either to the left or right of the beam.

Sign convention

Positive Shear Force
Negative Shear Force

Sign convention for shear force in brief

 Direction Positive SF Negative SF Left side Upward force Downward force Right side Downward force Upward force

Bending moment: The algebraic sum of all the moments of the forces and reactions in a beam towards either left side or right side of the support is known as bending moment.

Types of bending moment:

Sagging bending moment: The moment about the point which produces convexity below the centre line is called as sagging bending moment. It is also called as positive bending moment.

Consider the simply supported beam with central concentrated load “F”. The moment due to the force F produces a deflection in the downward direction which in turn results in the formation of sagging bending moment.

Hogging bending moment: The moment about the point which produces convexity above the centre line is called as hogging bending moment. It is also called as negative bending moment.
Consider the simply supported beam with central concentrated load “F”. The moment due to the force F produces a deflection in the upward direction which in turn results in the formation of hogging bending moment.

Differences between sagging and hogging bending moment

 Sagging bending moment Hogging bending moment The moment about the point which produces convexity below the centre line is called as sagging bending moment. The moment about the point which produces convexity above the centre line is called as hogging bending moment. It is also termed as positive bending moment It is also termed as negative bending moment Top fibres of beam are subjected to compression. Top fibers of beam are subjected to tension. Bottom fibers of beam are subjected to tension. Bottom fibers of beam are subjected to compression.

Step 1: Calculation of the reactions
ΣH = 0
ΣV = 0
Ra+ Rb= 0.5(5)(6)
Ra+ Rb= 15KN

ΣMa =0
Rb(5)-0.5(5)(6)(1/3)(5)=0
Rb = 5 KN ; Ra = 10KN

Step 2: Calculation of shear force
Shear force at point B = -5 KN
Shear force at point B = 10 KN

Step 3: Calculation of Bending Moment
Bending Moment at point B= 0KN-m
Bending Moment at point A= 0KN-m

Step 4: Calculation of point of zero bending moment
-Rb + (0.5)(x)(6x/5) = 0
x = 2.88m
Maximum bending moment = Rb(x) - (0.5)(x)(6x/5)(x/3)
Mmax = 9.62KN-m

Step 1: Calculation of the reactions
ΣH = 0
ΣV = 0
Ra+ Rb= 30+ 0.5(3)(20)
Ra+ Rb= 60KN

ΣMa =0
Rb(6)-30(5)-0.5(3)(20)(1+(2/3(3))=0
Rb = 40KN ; Ra = 20 KN

Step 2: Calculation of shear force
Shear force at point B = -40 KN
Shear force at point E = -40+30 = -10 KN
Shear force at point D= -10 KN
Shear force at point C= -10+(0.5)(3)(20)= 20 KN
Shear force at point A = 20 KN

Step 3: Calculation of Bending Moment
Bending Moment at point B= 0KN-m
Bending Moment at point E= 40X1=40 KN-m
Bending Moment at point D =40x2-30x1=50KN-m
Bending Moment at point C = 40x5-30x4-0.5(20)(3)(2/3(3))=20KN-m
Bending Moment at fixed point A = 0 KN-m

Step 4: Calculation of point of zero bending moment
Ra - (0.5)(x-1)(20/3)(x-1) = 0
x = 1.45m
Maximum bending moment = Ra(x) - (0.5)(x-1)(20/3)(x-1)(2/3)(x-1)
Mmax = 28.79KN-m
