What is structural idealization?

How is the structural idealization helpful for analysis of structures?

What meant by shear center.

Calculate the shear flow distribution in the channel section shown in Figure
produced by a vertical shear load of 4.8 KN acting through its shear center.
Assume that the walls of the section are only effective in resisting shear stresses
while the booms, each of area 300 mm2, carry all the direct stresses.

The fuselage section shown in Figure is subjected to a bending moment of 100


kNm applied in the vertical plane of symmetry. If the section has been completely
idealized into a combination of direct stress carrying booms and shear stress only
carrying panels, determine the direct stress in each boom.

The thin-walled single cell beam shown in Figure has been idealized into a
combination of direct stress carrying booms and shear stress only carrying walls.
If the section supports a vertical shear load of 10 kN acting in a vertical plane
through booms 3 and 6, calculate the distribution of shear flow around the section.

The thin-walled single cell beam as shown in figure 1 has been idealized into a
combination of direct stress carrying booms and walls carrying only shear stress.
The section supports a vertical shear load of 10 kN acting in the vertical plane
through booms 3 and 6. Calculate the distribution of shear flow around the
section. Boom areas: B1 = B8 = 200 mm2 , B2 = B7 = 250 mm2 , B3=B6=400
mm2 , B4 = B5=100 mm.
