BOIETZ’ Slope & Deflection Diagram by Parts

BOIETZ’ SLOPE & DEFLECTION DIAGRAM BY PARTS
Developed by Boietz S. Caluag (2003) Introduction: Deflection and Slope Diagram by Parts is an alternate method of solving the slope and deflection of the statically determinate beams at any point in a single process. It is a method utilizing the Conjugate Beam loaded by M/EI Diagram by parts as the real beam. Theorem 1. The slope of the curve at any point in the real beam is numerically equal to the algebraic sum of the ordinates at the corresponding point in the Slope Diagram by Parts. Theorem 2. The deflection of the curve at any point in the real beam is numerically equal to the algebraic sum of the ordinates at the corresponding point in the Deflection Diagram by Parts.

Comments: 1. Slope and Deflection Diagram is more convenient to use compared to Conjugate Beam Method. 2. The slope and deflection at any point can be computed only by one process/formula. 3. The Slope and Deflection Diagram by Parts can be drawn similar to that of drawing the Shear and Moment Diagram by parts.

DEFLECTION OF STRUCTURES Engineering structures are constructed from materials that deform slightly when subjected to stress or a change in temperature. As a result of this deformation, points on the structure undergo certain movements called DEFLECTIONS. Provided that the elastic limit of the material is not exceeded, this deformation and the resulting deflection disappear when the stress is removed and the temperature returns to its original value. This type of deformation or deflection is called ELASTIC and can be caused either by loads acting on the structure or by a change in temperature. CAUSES OF DEFLECTION 1. Stress 2. Change in temperature 3. Support settlement 4. play in pin joints 5. shrinkage of concrete, creep 6. etc. IMPORTANCE OF DEFLECTION COMPUTATIONS 1. Mode of failure in design 2. to analyze the vibration and dynamic response characteristics of the structures 3. Stress analysis of statically indeterminate structures are based largely on an evaluation of their deflection under load 4. etc. METHODS OF COMPUTING DEFLECTION 1. Virtual Work Method (Applicable to any type of structure – beam, truss, frames, etc.) 2. Castigliano’s Second Theorem (Applicable to any type of structure) 3. Williot-Mohr Method (Applicable to trusses only) 4. Bar-chain Method (Applicable to trusses only) 5. Double Integration Method (Applicable to beams only) 6. Moment-Area Method (Applicable to beams and frames only) 7. Elastic Load Method (Applicable to beams and frames only) 8. Conjugate Beam Method (Applicable to beams only) 9. Slope and Deflection Diagram by Parts (Applicable to beams only)
