Moment-Distribution

The method of moment distribution relies on a series of calculations that are repeated and that with every cycle come closer to the final situation. In this way we are able to avoid solving simultaneous equations. Inspection of the slope-deflection equations shows us that the final end-moments depend on 4 effects namely, θ A , θ B , ψ AB and the fixed end moments, FEM. By using moment-distribution we are able to investigate each effect separately. The following beam will be used to illustrate moment-distribution.

the nodes.

Rotation is possible at both B and C

Rotation at B and C are prevented and the load is applied. FEM will result. These are called the initial moments.

Allow B to rotate until moment equilibrium is reached. Rotation at B will induce a moment at C.

Allow C to rotate until moment equilibrium is reached. The rotation of C will induce a moment at B.

Repeat this process until moment equilibrium is reached at

Assume that the sum of the initial moments at the node B is equal to M 0 .

Rotation will take place until moment equilibrium is attained, i.e., sum moments ΣM B = 0.

Therefore:

k BA is the stiffness of the member BA at the node B. It is also the moment that would be induced if a unit rotation were applied at B in the member BA and the rotation at A was zero.

If B rotates a bending moment will be induced at A and C. Assume a rotation θ B and calculate the moment at

The distributed bending moment is half the value of the distributed bending moment at B. This is called the carry-over factor, C BA = ½.

The same solution may be obtained if one remembers that the stiffness of a member is the moment that is induced if a unit rotation is applied at the node.

Structural Frames with Sway.

Frames with a sway mechanism may be tackled by preventing the sway and calculating the force required to prevent the sway, call this P. Arbitrary sway is then applied to the structure and the force that leads to the arbitrary sway is calculated, call this Q. Apply the super-position equation as neither of the forces are really there.

P + x Q = 0

Final bending moment = Bending moment with sway prevented + x times bending moment with arbitrary sway.

Example 4:

Determine the bending moment diagramme of the following sway structure. The support A is a hinge, E is fixed and D is a roller. There is a hinge in BC at C.

Force P prevents the sway and force Q induces the arbitrary sway. Apply force P to prevent the sway. Rotation will occur at B and at C.
