0 INTRODUCTION

In a similar manner it can that if the Bending moments (BM) of the forces to the left of AA are clockwise then the bending moment of the forces to the right of AA must be anticlockwise. Bending Moment at AA is defined as the algebraic sum of the moments about the section of all forces acting on either side of the section. Bending Moment is the algebraic sum of the moment of the forces to the left or to the right of the section taken about the section. Bending moments are considered positive when the moment on the left portion is clockwise and on the right anticlockwise. This is referred to as a sagging bending moment as it tends to make the beam concave upwards at AA. A negative bending moment is termed hogging. An influence line for a given function, such as a reaction, axial force, shear force, or bending moment, is a graph that shows the variation of that function at any given point on a structure due to the application of a unit load at any point on the structure. An influence line for a function differs from a shear, axial or bending moment diagram. Influence lines can be generated by independently applying a unit load at several points on a structure and determining the value of the function due to this load, i.e. shear, axial, and moment at the desired location. The calculated values for each function are then plotted where the load was applied and then connected together to generate the influence line for the function. For example, the influence line for the support reaction at A of the structure shown in Figure 1, is found by applying a unit load at several points (See Figure 2) on the structure and determining what the resulting reaction will be at A. This can be done by solving the support reaction YA as a function of the position of a downward acting unit load. One such equation can be found by summing moments at Support B.

Similarly. Figure 3 . The graph illustrates that if the unit load was applied at A. the reaction at A would be equal to unity.(x/L) The graph of this equation is the influence line for the support reaction at A (See Figure 3). the reaction at A would be equal to -e/L.Figure 1 .Beam structure for influence line example Figure 2 .

It is required to draw influence line for bending moment at ‘C’ at a distance ‘a’ from the left support. in general.0 PRINCIPLES The influence line for bending moment at a section is the graph (curve) representing the variation of bending moment at a section for various positions of the load on the span of the beam.2.

Indicator 5 . 4.3.0 OBJECTIVE To determine the bending moment influence line when the beam is subjected to a load moving from left to the right.A set of weight with several load hangers 4.A pair of simple supports 2.0 APPARATUS 1 . Special beam with a cut section 3 .

The load hanger was moved to 100 mm from the left support and step 7 until step 11 was repeated. 10. 7. The indicator is switched on and it must switched on 10 minutes earlier before taking reading for stability of reading. Remove the load from the hanger.5. 6. 11.0 PROCEDURE The load cell is connected to the digital indicator. 9. 2 load hangers were used and 8 units of 6 load were placed on the 2 hangers while in third case. The indicator reading was set in zero (if not zero) by pressing the tare button. The distance is increased each time by 50 mm. 5. The supports were screwed tightly to the base. The step 7 until step 11 was repeated until the load reached end B for 2 more cases. 2. The distance between the hangers is 20 mm. 4. . In the second case. The units of load were placed on the load hanger. The load hanger was hanged to the beam. The indicator reading that represent the bending moment at the cut section was recorded. The two simple supports were fixed to the aluminium base at a distance equal to the span of the beam to be tested. 3 load hangers were used and 12 units of load were placed on the 3 hanger. The load hanger was placed 50 mm from the left support. 8. The beam was placed to the supports. 3.

Case 3 In this experiment. we used load 4N in every 3 case. From the result that we get. We also must make sure distances of the shear section from left support are same each experiment. Before put the load on the load hanger we must always set the indicator reading was in zero by pressing the tare button. there are some errors that make our result not accurate and contribute the error between the experiment and theory is the digital indicator is not too 15 . It is because to get the correct value.

although the value of experiment quite near with the value of theory a there are still have error. The digital indicator is too sensitive with the wind and the surrounding movement. This experiment and calculation is important before we built a bridge and other structure.edu/~fanous/ce332/influence/homepage. the values for the experimental and theoretical before cross section x-x are decrease and then after cross section x-x are increase. It is because to make sure that the structure is safe to built and used. http://www.0 CONCLUSIONS In conclusion. the screen show that the reading not in static. The beam is sensitive when we do the experiment. our eye level is not perpendicular to the ruler. the values of experimental result and theory result are nearly same. 9. From this experiment.

These experiments is very important before design the beam or any structure. The value is depend on the location of the load. For the case 1.com/reference/engineering/materials/shear_force_and_bending_ moment. The value for the experimental and theoretical value case 1 is nearly same. This is because when we measure the distance between the loads.
