supports is called

as continuous

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

unloaded condition is curved instead of straight. Or If the

beam is originally curved before applying the bending

moment, are termed as “Curved Beams”.

Curved beams find applications in many machine

members such as c – clampers , crane hooks, frames of

presses, chains, links, rings, etc..,

Assumptions:-

2. Material of the beam is isotropic & homogeneous

& obeys hook’s law.

3. Plane sections perpendicular to the axis of the beam

remain plane even after bending.

4. The stress induced do not exceed elastic limit.

5. Each layer of the beam is free to expand OR

contract, independent of the layer above or below it.

6. Young’s modulus is same in tension &compression.

planes ab & cd subtending an angle ‘θ’ at the centre of

curvature when the beam is subjected to bending moment

‘M’ as shown in fig, the plane ‘cd’ rotates with respect to

‘ab’ through an angle ‘θ’ & takes new position ‘fg’. The

outer fiber are shantered due to compression and inner

fibre are elongated due to tension. Now, consider a fiber

of depth ‘dy’ & cross- sectional area ‘dA’ at a distance

‘y’ from the neutral axis. The original length of strip at a

distance ‘y’ from the neutral axis is (Rn + y)θ. It is

shortened by an amount ydθ.

The strain across cross section dA would be

Є= +yθ .

(Rn+ y )θ

or σ=EЄ E- Young’s modulus

σ = + E y dθ (1)

Load on the strip having the thickness ‘dy’ & the cross-

section dA is given by

σ = dF or dF = σ dA

i.e., dF = + E y dθ . dA

Now applying the condition of equilibrium (i.e.,

summation of forces over the whole cross-section is

zero).

replaced by A.e, i.e., the product it may be reduced by

A.e , i.e., the product of total area A and the distance ‘e’

from the centroidal axis to the neutral axis.

SPRINGS

Introduction

A spring is defined as an elastic body, whose function is to distort when loaded and to recover its

original shape when the load is removed.

Applications

1) To absorb or control energy due to either shock or vibratgion as in automotives, railways,

aircrafts, landing gears and vibration dampers etc.

2) To apply forces, as in brakes, clutches and spring loaded valves.

3) To control motion by maintaining control between two elements as in CAMS & followers.

4) To measure forces as in spring balances and engine indicators.

5) To store energy as in watches, toys etc.

TYPES OF SPRINGS

1).HELICALSPRINGS

Helical springs are made of wire coiled in the form of helix and are primarily intended for

compressive or tensile loads. The cross-section of the wire from which the spring is made may be

circular, square or rectangular. The two forms of helical springs are compression helical spring and

tension helical spring as shown in figure.

o

Helical springs are said to be closely coiled, when the helix angle is very small (< 10 ), where

as in open coil helical spring the helix angle is large.

Advantages.

a) These springs are easy to manufacture.

b) They are available in wide range.

c) They are highly reliable.

d) They have constant spring rates.

e) Their performance can be predicted more accurately.

f) There characteristics can be varied by changing dimensions.

2). Conical and Volute springs.

The conical and volute spring shown in the figure are used in special applications where the

spring rate increases in increase in load. Another feature of these types of springs is the decreasing

number of coils results in an increasing spring rate. This characteristic is some times utilized in

vibrations problems where springs are used to support to body that have varying mass.

3). Torsion springs.

These springs may be of helical or spiral type as shown in figure. Helical types of springs are

used where the load tends to wind up the springs and are used in electrical mechanisms. Spiral type

is used where the loads tends to increase the number of coils and are used in watches and clocks.

4). Laminated or Leaf springs.

The laminated or leaf spring (also known as flat spring) consists of a number of flat plates

(known as leaves) of varying lengths held together by means of clamps and bolts. These types of

springs are most used in automobiles.

5). Disc springs.

These springs consists of a number of conical discs held together by a central bolt or tube as

shown in figure. These springs are used in applications where high spring rates and compact spring

units are required.

Terms used in compression springs

1. Solid length: -

When the springs are compressed until the coils come in contact

with each other, then the spring is said to be solid. The solid length of a spring is the product of

total number of coils & the diameter of the wire. Mathematically,

l

Solid length- Ls = n .d

l

Where n - no of coils

d - dia of the coils

2. Free length:-

the spring in the free or unloaded condition & is equal to the solid length plus the maximum

deflection or compression of the spring & the clearance between the adjacent coils.

Mathematically,

Free length - Lf = solid length + max. def + clearance between adjacent

coils.

l

Lf = n .d + δmax + 0.15 δmax

3. Spring index: - It is defined as the ratio of the man diameter of the coil to the diameter of the

wire.

Spring index = C = D/d

4. Spring Rate: - spring rate (stiffness/spring constant) is the defined as the load required per unit

deflection of the spring.

Spring Rate, K= F/ δ F- load, N

δ - Defection, mm

5. Pitch: - Pitch of the coils is defined as the axial distance between adjacent coils in un compressed

state.

l

Pitch of the coil, p = ( LF – Ls)/n + d

where, LF - Free length

Ls - Solid length

l

n - Total number of coils

d - diameter of coil.

Stress in helical spring and circular wire.

Consider a helical compression spring made of circular wire & subjected to an axial load F, as

shown in figure.

Let,

D = Mean diameter of the coil

d = Diameter of the spring wire,

n = number of active coils,

G = Modulus of Rigidity for the spring material,

F = Axial load on the spring,

τ = Max. Shear stress induced in the wire,

C = spring index = D/d

p = pitch of the coils &

δ = deflection of the spring.

Consider a point of the spring shown in fig (b). The load ‘F’ tends to rotate the wire & as a result

twisting moment (T) is developed in the wire, & thus torsional shear stress is induced in the wire.

Let us consider that part of spring is in equilibrium under the action of two forces ‘F’ & twisting

‘T’.

3 n

Therefore, T = F × D/2 = π × τ1 × d eq 3.1/pg 142

Therefore τ1 = 8.F.D

π.d

In addition to the torsional shear stress (τ1) induced in the wire, the following stresses also act on

the wire.

2. Stress due to curvature of wire.

Positive sign is used for the inner edge of the wire &

Negative sign is used for the outer edge of the wire.

Since the stress is maximum at the inner edge of the wire,

Therefore,

induced in the wire

Deflection of helical springs of circular wire.
