LECTURE 8

INTRODUCTION TO STATICS

1. Statics deals with the conditions of equilibrium of bodies acted upon by forces .

2. A rigid body is defined as a definite quantity of matter , the parts of which are

fixed in position relative to one another . The physical bodies are never absolutely

rigid but deform slightly under the action of loads, which they have to carry .If the

deformation is negligible when compared with the size of body , it is assumed to

be rigid.

3. A particle may be defined as an object which has only mass , and no size. Such a

body cannot exist theoretically , but when dealing with problems involving

distances considerably larger when compared to the size of the body can be

neglected without sacrificing accuracy.

4. Force may be defined as any action that tends to change the state o restor motion

of a body to which it is applied.The three quantities , which completely define a

force, are called its specifications. The specifications of a force are (1) its

magnitude , (2) its point of application , and (3) its direction The S.I. unit used by

engineers to measure the magnitude of a force is the Newton

5. The point of application of a force acting upon a body is that point in the body at

which the force can be assumed to be concentrated . The direction of a force is the

direction , along a straight line through its point of application , in which the

force tends to move a body to which it is applied.

Examples are length , area and time.

A quantity is said ton be a vector , if it is completely defined only when its magnitude

and direction are specified . Hence , force is a vector. The other examples of vector

are velocity and acceleration.

When two forces are in equilibrium (equal, opposite, collinear) , their resultant is zero

and their combined action on a rigid body is equivalent to that of no fofce at all.

8. LAW OF SUPERPOSITION

The action of a given system of a system of forces on a rigid body will in no way be

changed if we add to or subtract from the another system of forces.

LAMI’S THEOREM

If three concurrent forces are acting on a body, kept in an equilibrium , then each force is

proportional to the sine of the angle between the other two forces and the constant of

proportionality is the same.

LECTURE 10

A free body is a body not connected with other bodies and which from any given position

can be displaced in any direction in space. Free body diagram is a sketch of the isolated

body , which shows the external forces on the body and the reactions exerted on it by the

removed elements .

2. Indicate on this sketch all the applied forces , which tend to set the body in motion

, such as those caused by weight of the body or applied forces.

3. Also indicate on this sketch all the reactive forces, such as those caused by the

constraints as supports that tend to prevent motion.

4. All relevant dimensions and angles, reference axes are shown on the sketch.

EQUILIBRIUM OF A BODY

linear motion. According to Newton’s law of motion , it means that the resultant of all the

forces acting on a body in equilibrium is zero . In graphical terms , it means that the

force polygon closes.

The resultant R of a system of concurrent forces is zero only when the following

conditions are satisfied:

∑ X =0

∑Y = 0

It may be observed that only one of the above two conditions is not sufficient.

acting on the body should be considered . The various forces acting on a body may be

grouped as

(i) Applied forces

(ii) Non applied forces

Applied forces – Applied forces are the forces applied externally to a body.

Each of the forces has got a point of contact with the body.

Non –applied forces – There are two types of non-applied forces (a) Self

weight (b) Reactions

has got a self weight.

W = mg

Reactions – These are self adjusting forces developed by the other bodies

which come in contact with the body in consideration . The reactions adjust

themselves to bring the body in equilibrium.

LECTURE 11

THEOREM OF VARIGNON

The moment of the resultant of two concurrent forces with respect to a center

in their plane is equal to the algebraic sum of the moments of the components

with respect to the same center.

MOMENT OF A FORCE

Moment is defined as the product of the magnitude of the force and the

perpendicular distance of the point from the line of action of the force . The

ple point about which the moment is considered is called moment center and

the perpendicular distance of the point from the line of action of the force is

called moment arm.

The moment of a force has got direction also. It may be that moment has a

clockwise or anticlockwise direction . The S. I. unit of moment is N-m.

COUPLE

separated by a definite distance are said to form a couple .

The sum of the forces forming a couple in any direction is zero , which means

the translatory effect of the couple is zero.

(i) A couple consists of a pair of equal and opposite parallel forces which

are separated by a definite distance.

(ii) The translatory effect of a couple on the body is zero.

(iii) The rotational effect (moment) of a couple about any point and it is

equal to the product of the magnitude of the forces and the

perpendicular distance between the two forces.

(iv) Since the sole effect of a couple is a moment and this moment is the

same about any point , the effect of a couple is unchanged if

(b) The couple is shifted to any other position .

(c) The couple is replaced by another pair of forces whose rotational effect

is the same.

LECTURE 12

1. Two couples acting in the same plane are equivalent if they have equal moments .

A couple is completely defined by its plane of action and the magnitude and sign

of its moment.

2. The moment of the resultant couple is equal to the algebraic sum of the moments

of the two given couples.

3. We can replace several couples in one plane by a single resultant couple acting in

the same plane, the moment of which is equal to the algebraic sum of the

moments of the given couples.

4. A couple can be balanced only by another couple which is equal in moment ,

opposite in sign , and coplanar in action with the given couple.

5. A system of couples acting in one plane is in equilibrium if the algebraic sum of

their moments is equal to zero.

6. It is possible to resolve a couple into several component couples by choosing the

component couples in such a manner that the algebraic sum of the moments is

equal to the moment of the given couple.

7. A given force P applied to a body at any point A can always be replaced by an

equal force applied at another point B together with a couple which will be

statically equivalent to the original force.

8. Built –in –end (fixed supports ) is considerably more complex constraint than the

other types of constraints. It restricts the translatory motion as well as rotation.

The reduction of a given system of forces to the simplest system that will be

equivalent is called the problem of composition of forces.

RESOLUTION OF A FORCE

action to the given force , is called the problem of resolution of force.

Three non- parallel forces can be in equilibrium only when they lie in one plane ,

intersect in one point , and their free vectors build a closed triangle.The statement is

called the theorem of three forces.

LECTURE 13

A vector quantity is defined as a quantity , which satisfies

(i) The qualification of possessing a certain magnitude, including a null vector.

(iii) A sense , which qualifies its nature of action (moving towards or away

from a given point)

Two vectors are considered to be equal if and only if they have same magnitude , same

direction and same sense.

Two vectors are said to be equivalent if they produce the same effect in a certain respect.

FREE VECTOR

The action of free vector is not confined to a unique line in space . The vector may be

moved any where in the space without rotation.

Examples: Moment vector

Must remain at the same point of application . i.e. , a definite point of application.

An example of bound vector is the weight of a body .

The weight of a body always passes through the center of gravity of the body and is

always directed towards the center of earth irrespective of the orientation of the boby in

space.

It can be stated as “ If two forces acting simultaneously on a body are represented by the

sides of a triangle taken in order , their resultant is represented by the closing side of the

triangle taken in the opposite order.

If two forces, represented by vector AB and AC acting under an angle α , are applied to a

body at point A , their action is equivalent to the action of one force , represented by the

vector AD , obtained as the diagonal of the parallelogram constructed on the vectors AB

and AC are directed.

LECTURE 14

RESOLUTION OF A VECTOR

two parallelograms.

DIRECTION COSINES OF A VECTOR

respectively , the direction cosines l ,m and n of the vectors are defined by

UNIT VECTOR

A unit vector is defined as a vector having unit magnitude and a particular direction and

sense along the vector.

Unit vectors lying along the axes of reference OX, OY and OZ are called unit co-ordinate

vectors.

By definition the scalar product or dot product of two vectors results in a scalar

quantity whose magnitude is given by

A.B = ABcos α

dw = (Fcos θ )ds

Cross product of two vectors A and B generates another vector C such that

(ii) Direction of C is perpendicular to planecontaining A and B

Sense is determined by right hand thumb screw rule or by right hand thumb rule.

to a point P in space is called the position vector.

get from one position on the path of motion to another.

LECTURE 15

The principle of virtual work lays emphasis on the fact that a small displacement of

the bodies and found out the work done by various forces in the system and said if the

body is in equilibrium then the total work done on the system should be zero.This

approach is called “ virtual work method “ .The word virtual is used since in reality

there is no actual displacement . The term virtual is defined by Webster as “being in

essence of effect but not infact.”

The work done is virtual if the displacements are virtual or forces acting are virtual

.Hence in virtual work approach we may have the following-

(ii) Principles of virtual forces

THE METHOD

2. Write down the work done by each force in the system.

3. Sum up total work done by system of forces and equate it to zero to get required

equations. Many times such equations are identical to equations of equilibrium

.However, the method of getting these equations is completely different in this

method.

SIGN CONVENTION

In this chapter the positive senses of moments and displacements are as given below-

1. Forces and displacements are positive if they are in positive direction of co-

ordinates.

2. Moments and relations are positive if they are in clockwise direction.
