AIM:
To make students aware of how structural resolutions become important in realization of
architecture design concept. At this stage, students shall be exposed to forces, moments, and
resolution that are to be resolved. The focus is to study the concept of shear force and bending
moment in beam section, deflection of beams and theory of columns and to know the concept of
indeterminate structure.
OBJECTIVES:
 To enable a student to understand the basic concepts of shear force and bending moment
 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.
CONTENT:
UNIT I SHEAR FORCE AND BENDING MOMENT 5
Basic concepts – shear force and bending moment diagrams for cantilever and simply
loads, uniformly varying loads and concentrated moments/ couple) – Over hanging simply
supported beams – Point of contra flexure
UNIT II STRESSES IN BEAMS 5
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 8
Slope and deflection at a point – Double Integration method and Macaulay’s method for simply
supported and cantilever beams
14
UNIT IV COLUMNS 7
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 – Eccentric loading – Core
of a column section
UNIT V STATICALLY INDETERMINATE BEAMS 5
Introduction – Determination of degree of statical in determinacy for beams and frames –
Concept of Analysis (No Problems)
