Moment of a Couple
Moment produced by two equal, opposite and
noncollinear forces is called a couple.
Magnitude of the combined moment of the two
M = F(a+d) Fa = Fd

Vector Algebra Method: M rA F rB F

Moment of the couple rA rB F

about point O: r F
M rF sin Fd

## The moment vector of the couple is

independent of the choice of the origin of the
coordinate axes, i.e., it is a free vector that can
be applied at any point with the same effect.
ME101 - Division III Kaustubh Dasgupta 26
Moment of a Couple
Two couples will have equal moments if
Fd F d
1 1 2 2
the two couples lie in parallel planes, and
the two couples have the same sense or
the tendency to cause rotation in the same
direction.

Examples:

## ME101 - Division III Kaustubh Dasgupta 27

Consider two intersecting planes
P1 and P2 with each containing a
couple

M 1 r F1 in plane P1

M 2 r F2 in plane P2
Resultants of the vectors also
form a couple

M r R r F1 F2

By Varignons theorem

M r F1 r F2

M1 M 2
Sum of two couples is also a couple that is
equal to the vector sum of the two couples
ME101 - Division III Kaustubh Dasgupta 28
Representation of Couples by Vectors

## A couple can be represented by a vector with magnitude

and direction equal to the moment of the couple.

## Couple vectors are free vectors, i.e., the point of application

is not significant.
Couple vectors may be resolved into component vectors.

## ME101 - Division III Kaustubh Dasgupta 29

Couple: Example
Moment reqd to turn the shaft connected at center of
the wheel = 12 Nm
First case: Couple Moment
produced by 40 N forces = 12 Nm
Second case: Couple Moment
produced by 30 N forces = 12 Nm
If only One hand is used F = 60N
Same couple moment will be produced
even if the shaft is not connected at the
center of the wheel
Couple Moment is a Free Vector

Equivalent Systems (Force-Couple Systems)

## ME101 - Division III Kaustubh Dasgupta 31

Equivalent Systems: Resultants

FR = F1 + F2 + F3
How to find d?
Moment of the Resultant force about the grip must be equal
to the moment of the forces about the grip
FRd = F1d1 + F2d2 + F3d3
