## SFD and BMD

SFD and BMD:

The shear force diagram (SFD) and bending moment
diagram(BMD) of a beam shows the variation of shear
force and bending moment along the length of the beam.
These diagrams are extremely useful while designing the
beams for various applications.

### a shear force F,

which is defined as the algebraic sum of all vertical forces either to the left or to the right hand side of a section.

### a bending moment M,

which is defined as the algebraic sum of the moments of all vertical forces either to the left or to the right of a section

### SFD(Shear force diagram)

A shear force diagram is the graphical representation of the variation of shear force along the length of the beam and is abbreviated as S.F.D.

### BMD(Bending moment diagram)

A bending moment diagram is the graphical representation of the variation of he bending moment along the length of the beam and is abbreviated as B.M.D.

## Types of beam

https://youtu.be/y5tdxcy9FFA Learn: Types of beam: in strength of material, Cantilever beam, Simply supported beams,  Overhanging beam, Fixed beams,and Continuous beam. The following are the Important types of beam Types of Beam 1. Cantilever beam, 2. Simply supported beam, 3. Overhanging beam, 4. Fixed beams, and 5. Continuous beam. 1. Cantilever beam A beam which is fixed at one end and free at the other end, is known as cantilever beam. Such beam is shown in Fig. cantilever beam 2. Simply Supported beam A beam supported or resting freely on the supports at its both ends, is known as simply supported beam. Such beam is shown in Fig. Simply Supported beam 3. Overhanging Beam If the end portion of a beam is extended beyond the support, such beam is known as overhanging beam. Overhanging beam is shown in Fig. Over Hanging beam 4. Fixed Beam A beam whose both ends are…

## Learn about Simply Supported Beam : Overhang to One Side : Point Load

Simply Supported Beam : Overhang to One Side : Point Load : (Fig. 3.20) Simply supported - a beam supported on the ends which are free to rotate and have no moment resistance Over hanging - a simple beam extending beyond its support on one end. Point loads are concentrated loads applied along the span of a member or the edge of a wall panel. Defining point loads may be accomplished graphically or in the spreadsheets. In this example, one get clear idea how to calculate reactions when a simply supported beam is having point load overhang on one side of the support. Reactions : Taking moments about B, we get (i.e. acting downwards) S.F.D. : Between C and A, S.F. =-W=constant Between A and B, S.F. = The S.F.D. is shown in Fig. 3.20 (b). B.M.D. : Between C and A, Mx=Wx, which gives MC=0 ; MA=Wa. Between A…

## Simply Supported Beam : U.D.L. over the whole span

A beam, Simply Supported Beam : U.D.L. over the whole span is a structural element that primarily resists loads applied laterally to the beam's axis. Its mode of deflection is primarily by bending. Classification based on supports In engineering, beams are of several types: Simply supported - a beam supported on the ends which are free to rotate and have no moment resistance. Structural loads or actions are forces, deformations, or accelerations applied to a structure or its components. Loads cause stresses, deformations, and displacements in structures. Assessment of their effects is carried out by the methods of structural analysis. Excess load or overloading may cause structural failure, and hence such possibility should be either considered in the design or strictly controlled.
