AR6301 MECHANICS OF STRUCTURES-2

OBJECTIVES:
To enable a student to understand the basic concepts of shear force and bending moment acting on beams subjected to various loading conditions through exercises.
• To determine the stresses in beams and strength of sections by working out problems.
• To calculate deflection of beams using methods.
• To study the theory of columns by working out problems.
• To understand the concept of inter determinate structure and its analysis.
• Case studies and Models wherever feasible.

UNIT I SHEAR FORCE AND BENDING MOMENT
Basic concepts – shear force and bending moment diagrams for cantilever and simply supported beams subjected to various types of loadings (Point loads, uniformly distributed loads) – Over hanging simply supported beams – Point of contra flexure

UNIT II STRESSES IN BEAMS
Theory of simple bending – Bending stress distribution – Strength of sections – Beams of composite sections (Flitched beams) – Shearing stress distribution in beam sections

UNIT III DEFLECTION OF BEAMS
Slope and deflection at a point–Double Integration method and Macaulay’s method for simply
supported and cantilever beams

UNIT IV COLUMNS
Short and long columns – Concept of Elastic stability – Euler’s theory – Assumptions and Load
carrying capacity of Columns with different end conditions – Concept of Effective length – Slenderness ratio – Limitations of Euler’s theory – Rankine’s formula.

UNIT V STATICALLY INDETERMINATE BEAMS
Introduction – Determination of degree of statically indeterminacy for beams and frames –Concept of Analysis (No Problems)

TOTAL: 45 PERIODS

OUTCOMES
At the end of the course, the student should be able to:
 Apply the concepts of determining the techniques of finding the stresses.
 Use the theory of simple bending theory to find the deflection in beams.
 Analyze and solve the different types of columns.
 Analyze the diffÃ©rant types of indeterminate beams.
