 Three Hinged Arch
Version 2 CE IIT, Kharagpur
Instructional Objectives:
After reading this chapter the student will be able to1. Define an arch.2. Identify three-hinged, two-hinged and hingeless arches.3. State advantages of arch construction.4. Analyse three-hinged arch.5. Evaluate horizontal thrust in three-hinged arch.
32.1 Introduction
In case of beams supporting uniformly distributed load, the maximum bendingmoment increases with the square of the span and hence they becomeuneconomical for long span structures. In such situations arches could beadvantageously employed, as they would develop horizontal reactions, which inturn reduce the design bending moment.For example, in the case of a simply supported beam shown in Fig. 32.1, thebending moment below the load is
. Now consider a two hinged symmetricalarch of the same span and subjected to similar loading as that of simplysupported beam. The vertical reaction could be calculated by equations ofstatics. The horizontal reaction is determined by the method of least work. Now
