Euler-Bernoulli Beams

The   Euler-­‐Bernoulli   beam   theory   was   established   around   1750   with   contributions   from  Leonard  Euler  and  Daniel  Bernoulli.  The  work  built  on  earlier  developments  by   Jacob   Bernoulli.   However,   the   beam   problem   had   been   addressed   even   earlier.   Galileo  attempted  one  formulation  but  misplaced  the  neutral  axis.  Leonardo  da  Vinci   also   seems   to   have   addressed   the   problem   of   beam   bending.   The   two   key   assumptions   in   the   Euler-­‐Bernoulli   beam   theory   are   that   the   material   is   linear   elastic   according   to   Hooke’s   law   and   that   plane   sections   remain   plane   and   perpendicular  to  the  neutral  axis  during  bending.  The  latter  is  sometimes  referred   to  as  Navier’s  hypothesis.   In  contrast,  Timoshenko  beam  theory,  which  is  covered  in   another   document,   relaxes   the   assumption   that   the   sections   remain   perpendicular   to  the  neutral  axis,  thus  including  shear  deformation.  In  the  following,  the  governing   equations   are   established,   followed   by   the   formulation   and   solution   of   the   differential   equation.   Thereafter,   the   computation   of   stresses   and   cross-­‐section   constants  is  described.   A  number  of  sign  conventions  are  adopted  in  the  following:   § § The  z-­‐axis  is  increases  upward     Displacement  w  is  positive  in  the  direction  of  the  z-­‐axis
