What is a Beam?

Horizontal structural member used to support horizontal loads such as floors, roofs, and decks. Types of beam loads Uniform Varied by length Single point Combination

Beam Terminology gy

The parallel portions on an I-beam or H-beam are referred to as the flanges. The portion that connects the flanges is referred to as the web.

Beam Geometry y

Consider a simply supported beam of length, L. The cross section is rectangular rectangular, with width width, b b, and height height, h h.

Beam Centroid

An area has a centroid, which is similar to a center of gravity of a solid body. The centroid of a symmetric cross section can be easily found by inspection. X and Y axes intersect at the centroid of a symmetric cross section, as shown on the rectangular cross section.

Y - Axis

Centroid

Inertia is a measure of a bodys ability to resist movement, bending, or rotation Moment of inertia (I) is a measure of a beams Stiffness with respect to its cross section Ability y to resist bending g As I increases, bending decreases As I decreases, bending increases Units of I are (length)4, e.g. e g in4, ft4, or cm4

I can be derived for any common area using calculus. However, moment of inertia equations for common cross sections (e.g., rectangular, t l circular, i l t triangular) i l ) are readily dil available il bl i in math th and d engineering textbooks. For a solid rectangular cross section,

Suppose a concentrated load, P (lbf), is applied to the center of the simply supported beam

P

Deflection

The beam will bend or deflect downward as a result of the load P (lbf).

P

Deflection ()

is a measure of the vertical displacement of the beam as a result of the load P (lbf).

P

Deflection, e ec o ,

Deflection ()

of a simply supported, center loaded beam can be calculated from the following formula: P

PL = 48EI

L

Deflection,

P = concentrated load (lbf) L = span length of beam (in) E = modulus of elasticity (psi or lbf/in2) I = moment of inertia of axis perpendicular to load P (in4)

Deflection ()

PL = 48EI

I, the Moment of Inertia, is a significant variable in the determination of beam deflection But.What is E?

Material property that indicates stiffness and rigidity Values of E for many y materials are readily y available in tables in textbooks. Some common values are Material Steel Aluminum Wood E (psi) 30 x 106 10 x 106 ~ 2 x 106

Consider

If the cross-sectional area of a solid wood beam is enlarged, how does the Modulus of Elasticity, E, change?

The calculations for Moment of Inertia are very simple for a solid, symmetric cross section. C l l ti th Calculating the moment t of fi inertia ti f for more complex l cross-sectional ti l areas takes a little more effort. Consider a hollow box beam as shown below:

4 in.

The same equation for moment of inertia, I = bh3/12, can be used but is used in a different way. Treat the outer dimensions as a positive area and the inner dimensions as a negative area, as the centroids of both are about the same X-axis. X axis.

Positive Area

Calculate the moment of inertia about the X-axis for the positive area and the negative area using I = bh3/12. The outer dimensions will be denoted with subscript o and the inner dimensions will be denoted with subscript i.

bo = 4 in.

bi = 3.5 in.

ho = 6 in. X-axis hi = 5.5 in.

bo = 4 in.

bi = 3.5 in.

bo h o = 12

I neg

b h = i i 12

I pos =

(4 in )(6 in )

12

I neg =

(3.5 in )(5.5 in )3

12

Simply subtract Ineg from Ipos to calculate the moment of inertia of the box beam, Ibox

I box = 23.5 in 4

Important p

In order to use the positive-negative area approach, the centroids of both the positive and negative areas must be on the same axis!

bo = 4 in.

bi = 3.5 in.

I Beams

The moment of inertia about the X-axis of an I-beam can be calculated in a similar manner.

I Beams

Centroids of the positive area and both negative areas are aligned on the xaxis!

H Beams

Can we use the positive-negative area approach to calculate the Moment of Inertia about the X-axis (Ix) on an H-Beam?

X-Axis

H Beams

X-Axis

They dont align on the X-axis. Therefore, we cant use the positive-negative approach to calculate Ix! We could use it to calculate Iybut thats beyond the scope of this class.

H Beams

We need to use a different approach. Divide the H-beam into three positive areas. Notice the centroids for all three areas are aligned on the X-axis.
