Strength of Materials
Moving Loads
From the lessons, you have learned that :
the maximum moment occurs at a point of zero shears.
For beams loaded with concentrated loads, the point of zero shears usually occurs under a concentrated load andso the maximum moment.
Beams and girders such as in a bridge or an overheadcrane are subject to moving concentrated loads, whichare at fixed distance with each other.
The problem here is to determine the moment undereach load when each load is in a position to cause amaximum moment.
The largest value of these moments governs the design of the beam.
Moving Loads
For a single moving load, the maximum moment occurs whenthe load is at the midspan and the maximum shear occurswhen the load is very near the support (usually assumed to lieover the support).
