This system is similar to the one shown in Fig. It should be kept in mind that the ground and any portion of the structure conneeted to it with the required minimum of three bars constitute an unyielding combination and therefore it is quite immaterial on which of the two the connecting bars will take support. will always form an unyielding combination.1 (such systems being Fit:.1 shows a number of systems constituted as just described.

M and ilf acting <1vor the cross sections of three-hinged arches is carried out by con· .slructing the so-called funicular polygon or polygon of pressure.8 Lot us proceed now with the construction of the funicular polygon (fig.3c) until its intersection at m with the dir(3Ction of force P 1• Through the point of intersection we shall trace the string II' parallel to ray II o£ the force polygon. . For this purpose we shall extend the direction of reaction A (Fig. 2. 17. 8. :17. Fig. the latter being the resultant of reaction A aud loads P 1 and P 2 • • *Sc() Fig. this ray representing the resnll:ant of the reaction A and the load P 1 • J~e t point rt be the inLers~ction of the string II' with the line of action of the load P 2 • Through this point we shall trace the string III' paralle1 to ray ll 1. T he reactions at the supports . (H!.1 and B . * Fig. 17.

the polygon of foroes and the pressure polygon permit the determination of all the stresses in any cross section of the arch .IJgon or line of pressure as each string c. .3b tho resultant of forces A and P 1 will be g ivon by tho length of ray II measured to scale.om the centre of gravity of the cross sect ion . in Fig.{ Jf all the operations were carried out correctly. lt is clear that ray 0-6 will represent the shear Q and ray 6-.c.tion of the prossure exerted by one portion of tho arch on the other. 17 . For instance. their resttltant passing through the point of interscctiort of stri ng 11' with force P 2 as string II' is itself the resullnnt of forces A aud P 1 • Therefore.oincldes with the direc. Determination o.. This may be illustrnted by Fig.li'I'. In the case of section k 3 -k 3 du~ rc will be already three iorces A. this resultant coincides with string .In oroer to determine tho shear and the normal force acting over sectiou kclc 1 the resultant of all the forces to the left o£ this section {ray I or reaction A) must be resolved into two components. 17 . At thB same time string ll' ropresen ts the resultant of these two forces .onsidered. . .ction of the reaction at B will pass through the pin of this support..<~ . Passing to section l£ 2 -k 2 we note that thoro arc already two forces A and P 1 to its left. Hence these strings will coincide in direction wiLh the -resultant of n L1 the forces acting on the arch to the left or to the right of lhc seetion considered. Thus.A and P 1 wilt pass through the centre of hinge C whilst the string III' whoso direction must coincide with the dirr. one parallel to the tangent to the arch centre lino at this section (ray 6-1) and the other (ray 0-6) normal to the same line. The magnitude of this resultant may be determined with the aid of t he polygon of forces.ion. the bending moment may be obtained by multiplying the resultant by its distance to the centroid of the section undc:r <:onsidcra t. 'l'hus.3c where to t. Accordingly.~sure polygon A mnB represmt. any line in the pre. the string II' repre. polygon will coincido with the direction of force A which is the resultant of all the forces to the left of tho c.L'/.ross section c.lar.

STRAIN ENERGY THEORY AND GENERAL METHODS OF DISPLACEMENT COMPUTATION

t.8. GENERAL
The stress analysis of redundant structures t•equircs that usc should be made of displacement equations in addition to tho usual equilibrium equations. It becomes therefore necessary to delermine the deformat ions and strains in different par.ts of the structure. Moreover, the deFlections of stulically determinate structures must he also frequently determined, such Rtructures having to fulfil cor~ tain requirements concerning both their strength nnd thoil' rigidity, in order to avoid excessive deformations under service loads. For this reason the study of variorLs methods of strain and deflection compulatiorL for clastic systems acquires the greatest importance in lhe theory of structures. This chapter will be devoted to lite study of general methods permitting tho determination of the strains and deflections o[ various framed structures, arches, rigid frames, otc. V•le shall start with reviewing certain questions concerning the work accomplished by the oxternal forces and tho potential or strain energy nccumulaled in various elastic systems during their deformation.

5.8, ':'!01\K OF FXTf.IP\AL FOitCC:S
During t.he loading of a ny system its clements uro p11t iulo rnotion, acquiring certain velocities and accelerations. It is clcnr that. the rate of growth of the deformations will increase proportionally to the rat-e of loading, and if Lhc latter becomes very small, the rnomonLum acquired by the system when passing from one state to another will become quite negligible. Hereafter thi!l latLct· type of loading will he reforrod to ns stlltical loading. In order to determine Lho work of any external load P applied gradually to any elastic syste m (Fig. 1.8) we shall make use of MaxwolJ's JH:inciple of superposition, ptovided the material follows Hooke's law. Consequently, the displacorncnts suffered by different points of an clastic. syslcm will be in direct proportion

to the loads which have caused them. In its most general form this may be expressed by the following equation
6.=aP

(1.8)

In this expression fl is the deformation sustained by the system along the line of aetion of force P, and a is a factor depending on the material itself, on the pattern and the dimensions of the structure and ort the point of application of the load P. Let force P increase by dP; this will immediately cause a corresponding increase of 6. by dfl. The work performed by the load

Fig. 1.8

P along the displacement d6., neglecting as usual t.he infmitesimals of the higher orders, will be dA=(P+dP) dfl= P dfl

Replacing dfl by its value adP (1.8) we obtain
dA=Pclfl=aPdP Integrating this expression from zero to the final value of tho external load, we obtain the expression of the work accomplished by this load during its statical application

a.P'-

As fl = aP, this may be equally written A= 2 Pfl It should be noted that the direction of the displacement caused by a load P may differ from that of the load. As the work accomplished by a load is always expressed by the product of a force by the length of the displacement measured along the line of action of this force, the displacement fl will always represent the projection of the total displacement of the load point on the direction of the load. Thus, for instance, if a load P acts at an angle j:'l to the axis of a

Thus, the work accomplished by any extema.Lforce applied gradually to an cdastic system. will be always given by half the product of this force by the length of the di.~placcm.ent measured in the direction of this jorce. 'Ihe tt>rrn force applies in this c~'lse to any external action including moments, distriuu ted loads, etc. As ror the ter m displacement, it will mean the defonna tiou corresponding to the type of action whose work is being studiod. 'l'hus, a linear displacement will correspond to a coocontrated load P, an angular rotation to a moment IDl and the area of the displacoment graph of a loaded st reteb to distributed loads. When a. xystem of loads ts gradually applied to a structure, the work accomplished by each of these loads will equal half the product of its

Thus, in tho case of the bca m of Fig. 4.8 which carries two concentratl•d loads P 1 and P 2 and which is suhjectcd at the same time to the action of two moments ID'l 1 nnd IDl:>.. the work of the external forces will equal

The work pcl'formed by the external forces along tho displacements caused by these forces can bo equally expressed in lerms of the stresses (bending moments, normal forces and shears) which are developed in the cross sections of the structure under consider.aLion. Let us take the bar represented in Fig. 5.8 and let us consider an infinitely small length d;1; bounded by two pianos normal to the bar axis. Tho whole bar will comprise an infinite numbor. of such sections. If all the loads act in the plane of the lJar axis, the elenar.nt dx will be subjected to a normal forc.c N. a ben eli ug moment.

Hereunder let us study separately the work porformed by each of those actions. An element d.x subjected solely to a normal force N appears in· Fig. 6.8.

The analysis of this expregsion leads to the following conclusions: 1. The strain energy is alwa~'S positive, for the above exprossion ·contains tho values of the internal Iorces Jl![, N and Q in the second 1Jower. 2. The strain energy is expres:sod by a homogeneous func.l.ion or the stresses or strain~ in t.he sec.ond power, the strains being directly proportiona I to the sl.r·cssM. 3. The strain energy tu;c.urnulatcd under the action of a cert-ain system of forct!S is not. equal to the sum of strain energies due to <tlach of those forc.es separately and therefore the principle oi superposition is no longc1: valid. This follows from t.hl' fact that the strain onet·gy is a function of Lite second power of the stre.sses 1l'l, N and Q and !;hal. the square of a sum is never equal Lo Lho snm of l.hc squares. 4. Tho s t!'ain energy ac.c.umulated i n a body is indepenrl(~nt; of the :sequouce in whic;h l.he external forces are applil:ld, the final ·vnlues of the stresses Jf, JV and Q being independent of this scquoncc. ·Consequl'ntly, the sLrai n energy cloponds only on the 1i nal state {>f an elastic body.

For A better understanding of the above equation let us imagine t.ha t at first load P 1 is increased gradually from zero to its final value and then remains constant while load P 2 slowly reaches its full value in the same way. It is clear that the application of load P 2 will cause the end of the bar to move downwards au arnount :~, anc:.l that during that time the loac:.l P 1 (assumed consLant) will perform the work equal to ~/ . Thm:, the last term of the ex pres:;ion for W 3 gives the value of the work performed by the load P 1 when its point of application is shifted by fol'ce P2 (ol' vico versa, H the sequence of londiug is invot·lcd).

A conveniont. method of <:hccking the M, Q and N diagram~ consists in the 1$uccc -ssive isolation of different parls or joint_g of lhe structure which must al ways remain in equili brium. Thus, tho projection on the vertical of all the support roactions of any framed structure must always equal the vertical component of t,he resultant of all t he npplied loads. Similarly, tbe sum of moments o£ a ll the reactions about any point of the slt·ucturo must a lway!' t•quaJ the moment about the same point of tbe resultant of the applied loads . and so forth.

'J'hus, for any structure forming a closed contou,r the algebraic sum of bendtng moment graph surfaces mt~st reduce to zero , these surfaces betng previously divided by EJ when necessary. As for tho sign of the g1·aph areas, those situated within tho contour will be taken with Olle sign and Lhoso situated outside with the opposite one. This method of controlling the accuracy of computations is the simplest. If the results obtained are satisfactory, one may be reasonably sure that all tho computations were carried ou t correctly. Jt should be noted however that this method is inapplicable to fl'amed structures with hinged joints or parts thereof. Complete certitude that no error has been committed in any of the computations can be gained only if the number of control operations carried out is equal to the number of redunda1tt constraints, provided these operatiOns do not repeat one another. • Thus, for instance, if the gra ph areas for two contiguous yarts of a structure have been summed up, tho same procedure may not be a pplied to the same two parts taken as a. whole, for this would simply repent tho control s already c.o.rried out and could therefore furnish no new data.
7.9. STRAINS A .N D DEFLECTlONS OJ.' STATICALLY INDETERMI NATE STRUCTURES

Expressions (15.8) through (17 .8) deve loped in Art. 6.8 were hascd on the assumptions that the material of tho structure foHows H ovko's law and lhat the strains and deflections of the structure an• very small compared to its dimensions. Hence, theso express ion!' as well as the corresponding computation techniques can be appliod to all framed structures regardless of whether t hey are statically de terminate or not. Let us therefore use o ne of these expressions for the determination of Lhu ver tical deflect ion 11v of poin t C located along the neut ral nx.is of a knee frame subjected to a uniformly distributed horizontal load of q kg per unit length as shown in Fig. 45.9a. This frame was analyzed in Problem 2 of Art. 3.9 (see Fig. 16.9a). Tho resulting bcn.cling moment graph is reproso!lted in Fig. 45 .9b (soc also Fig. 18.9b}. In ordet· to iind the desired deflection let us apply at point C a vertica l unit load, which will give rise to the bending rnomont curve of Fig. 45.9c. **
