Analysis

Note:

1. Dimensions, properties and loading are given in consistent units in all problems.

2. All figures are drawn to scale.

3. Calculations should be shown in detail with all intermediate steps; it is recommended to manipulate

expressions symbolically as far as possible and substitute numbers only at or near the end.

1. Problem (50% weight)

The continuous beam over two spans in Fig. 1 is subjected to a concentrated force Pv at the middle of

each span. The left span of length 2L has flexural stiffness EI1 and the second span also of length 2L

has flexural stiffness EI2 .

Figure 1: Continuous beam over two spans

The analysis of the continuous beam over two spans under the given load pattern gives a bending

moment in the middle of the left span of 0.23992Pv L and a bending moment in the middle of the right

span of 0.35484Pv L.

You are asked to answer the following questions:

2. Determine the vertical deflection under the concentrated force of the left span in terms of Pv , L and

EI1 .

2. Problem (50% weight)

The structural model in Fig. 2 consists of five frame elements a through e. The frame elements have

very large axial capacity and the following flexural capacity values Mp : elements a, b and e have flexural

capacity Mp of 250 units, element c has flexural capacity Mp of 300 units, and element d has flexural

capacity Mp of 350 units. Fig. 2 shows the location of the plastic hinges at incipient collapse: they

form at both ends of element a, end j of element b, both ends of element c, and end j of element e

noting that end i corresponds to the lower numbered node to which the element connects.

1. Problem (50% weight)

The structural model in Fig. 1 of a braced frame consists of three inextensible frame elements a, b, and

c and a truss (brace) element d. The flexural section stiffness EI of the frame elements a, b and c is

100,000, while the axial section stiffness EA of the brace element d is 40,000 units.

The structure is subjected to a downward vertical nodal force of 50 units at node 2, as Fig. 1. In

addition, the brace element d is prestressed with an initial prestressing force q0 = 100.

2. Problem (50% weight)

The continuous girder in Fig. 4 over two equal spans of length 2L is subjected to a uniform element

load w that extends over the left half of each span, as Fig. 4 shows. The continuous girder has uniform

flexural stiffness EI.

Figure 4: Two span continuous girder geometry and loading

1. Propose a suitable discrete structural model for determining the bending moment distribution of

the continuous girder under consideration of the rule that division and multiplication with matrices

larger than 2x2 is not allowed for hand calculations.

2. Determine and draw the bending moment distribution under the given loading in Fig. 5.

3. Determine the vertical translation at the middle of the right span of the continuous girder.
