Introduction. Straight Beam: - A beam is a straight structural member subjected to a system of external forces acting at right angles to its axis. They are classified by the type of supports. 1. If a member is fixed or built in one end while its other end is free, the member is called cantilever beam. 2. If the ends of the beam are made to freely rest on supports the beam is called a freely or simply supported beam. 3. If abeam is fixed at both its, it is called as built-in or fixed beam.

4. A beam which is provided with more than two supports is called as continuous beam.

A beam is said to be statically determinate beam, if its reaction components can be determined by using equations of static equilibrium only. Commonly encountered statically determinate beams are cantilever beams, SS beam and over hanging beams. Beams are subjected to transverse loads such as concentrated load, UDL, UVL & applied moments. Beam transfer applied load to supports, the beam develop resistance to moments & transverse shear forces at all its cross-sections. CURVED BEAMS A beam in which the neutral axis in the unloaded condition is curved instead of straight. Or If the beam is originally curved before applying the bending moment, are termed as “Curved Beams”. Applications of Curved Beams. Curved beams find applications in many machine members such as c – clampers , crane hooks, frames of presses, chains, links, rings, etc..,

Differences between Straight Beams & Curved Beams. Sl.no Straight Beams Curved Beams 1. Neutral axis of the Neutral axis does not co cross-section passes – incide with the crossthrough the centroid of section, but is shifted the section. towards the centre of curvature of the beam. 2. The variation of The distribution of the bending stress is linear, stress in the case of magnitude being curved beam is nonproportional to the linear (Hyper- bolic) distance of a fiber from because of the neutral the neutral axis. axis is initially curved.

Note:- In all the machine members, the line of action the load does not pass through the centroid of the section over which the stress is to be found out. Due to this, the total stress over section of the member will be the algebraic sum of direct stress & bending stress.

Q) Discuss the stress distribution pattern in curved beams when compared to straight beam with sketches. [VTU /Feb 2002](4) Curved beam Hyperbolic stress Distribution [nonlinear] ►The neutral axis of the cross section does not coincide with the centroidal axis but is shifted towards the center of

curvature of the beam. ►Bending stress in curved beams donot follow linear variation because of the variation of arc length. Straight beam Linear variation of stress ►Neutral axis coincides with the centroidal axis. ►Variation of normal stress due to bending across its section is linear. ►The stress is proportional to the distance of the fiber from the neutral axis.
