Steps:

Find the area under each section of to get , sketch the slope.
*Make sure the shear and moment diagrams match the end boundary conditions.
*Replace a distributed loaded with an equivalent point load when performing calculations.
*The shear diagram is discontinuous; the moment diagram is continuous unless there is a moment load.
*For a beam on the ground, assume a uniform reaction of = (solve for w).
*The shear diagram doesnt change going through a moment, neither does the slope of the moment.
*Add a negative moment for the moment diagram, and subtract a positive moment.

Boundary Conditions: *

Multi-Load/Multi-Segment Axial/ Torque Load: *

1. Find reaction forces/torques from a F.B.D.
2. Start from one side, and find the axial load/torque for each segment from a F.B.D.
3. For each segment, calculate the deflection, and sum deflections at the end.

Linear Deflection (Two Links): *

1. Find reaction forces from a F.B.D.
2. Find the deflection in each of the elastic links from the reaction forces.
3. The deflection at any other point on the rigid frame falls on the deflection line.

Linear Deflection (> Two Links/ Statically Indeterminate): *

1. Find a relationship between the reaction forces from a F.B.D. Use both a force and moment relationship
(two equations).
2. The deflection at any other point on the rigid frame falls on the deflection line: () = + . Find an
equation for the deflection of each link. (Same concept for a rotation)
3. Find a relationship between the reaction force and deflection of each individual link, and solve the
system of equations.

Axial Clamp Deflection: *

1. Find the deflection as a function of the axial load in each link (use symmetry).
2. Find the constrain equation (total deflection = deflection of link in same direction deflection of link in
opposite direction, should sum together).
3. Relate the axial forces in each link using a F.B.D. and solve the system of equations.
4. *A pitch of 1 in. deflects 1 in. per turn of a screw/nut.

Multi-Segment Axial/ Torque Load with Geometric Constraint: *

1. Find an equation relating the reaction forces in each of the segments to the applied load using a F.B.D.
2. Find equations for the deflection of each segment.
3. Create a geometric constraint that requires the deflections to be equal, and solve the system of
equations.

Wedged Rod: *
1. Find an equation relating the two unknown reaction forces.
2. Pick a point in the center of the rod, and find an equation for the deflection of the point coming from
the left, and find an equation for the deflection of the point coming from the right. (Use same
coordinate system for both; for a temperature change, each rod extends away from the rigid wall).
3. Due to the geometric constraint, the deflections should be equal, so set the equations equal to each
other, and then solve the system of equations. (If there is a gap in-between, either subtract the gap
from the deflection coming from the right, or add the gap to the deflection coming from the left).

Indeterminate Beam (Boundary Condition): *

1. Find an equation for the moment.
2. Integrate the equation twice, and treat the redundant reaction as an unknown.
3. Use three boundary conditions to find the three unknowns ( , 1 , 2 ).

Indeterminate Beam (Method of Superposition): *

1. Find an expression for the deflection in the link.
2. Use the method of superposition to find the deflection from the reaction force and the distributed load
in separate cases.
3. Set the expression for the deflection of the link equal to the summation of the two deflections of the
beam at the connection to the link from the reaction force of the link and the distributed load.

Elementary Statics

Newtons Laws: *
o 1st: Every object in a state of uniform motion tends to remain in that state of motion unless an external
force is applied to it. This we recognize as essentially Galileo's concept of inertia, and this is often
termed simply the "Law of Inertia".
o 2nd: = (for static cases, = 0)
o 3rd: For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.

Definitions of Structures:
o Trusses- designed to support loads and are usually stationary, fully constrained structures. They consist
exclusively of straight members connected at joints located at the end of each members. Members of a
truss, therefore are two-force members, or members acted upon by two equal and opposite forces
directed along the member.
o Frames- designed to support loads and are also, fully constrained structures. Unlike trusses, frames
contain at least one multi-force member, or a member acted upon by three or more forces which, in
general, are not directed along the member.
o Machines- designed to transmit and modify forces and are structures containing moving parts.
Machines, like frames, always contain at least one multi-force member.
Trusses: *
o Tension (a) / Compression (b)
