2-1 Idealized Structure
To develop the ability to model or idealize a
structure so that the structural engineer can
perform a practical force analysis of the
members

2-1 Idealized Structure: Idealized
support
Support Connections
Pin connection (allows some freedom for
slight rotation)
Roller support (allows some freedom for
slight rotation)
Fixed joint (allows no relative rotation)

## Idealized models used in structural

analysis are shown in Fig 2.3

Support Connections
In reality, all connections exhibit some
stiffness toward joint rotations owing to
friction & material behavior
A more appropriate model for a support or
joint might be that shown in Fig 2.3 (c)
If k = 0 the joint is pin and -> , the joint is
fixed

2-1 Idealized Structure
Support Connections
When selecting the model for each
support, the engineer must be aware
how the assumptions will affect the
actual performance
The assumptions must be reasonable
for the structural design
results that closely approximate the

IDEALIZED SUPPORT Connections and
Reactions
Common types of connections on coplanar
structures are given in Table 2.1
In reality, all supports actually exert
contacting members

Idealized Structure
Consider the jib crane & trolley in Fig 2.5(a)

## For analysis, we neglect the thickness of

the 2 main member & will assume that the
joint at B is fabricated to be rigid
The support at A can be modeled as a
fixed support
Details of trolley can be excluded

IDEALIZED Structural Elements
Consider the framing
used to support a typical
floor slab in a building
as shown in Fig 2.6(a)

## The slab is supported by floor joists located

at even intervals
These are in turn supported by 2 side
girders AB & CD
