The objective of this video is to develop bending moment diagram from the free body diagram and method of section. At first, the video shows the same exemplary beam overviewed in previous video to develop shear force diagram & asks to develop the bending moment diagram. Doing so, the video follows the same doctrine of shear force diagram (SFD) that is to make a cut every time a new force is applied. The video also takes help from SFD for the drawing of bending moment diagram.
Moving on, the video step by step shows how to take cut gradually one after another & successively finds the momentum for every cut to use afterwards to draw the bending moment diagram (BMD). Later, the video briefly talks about the different points of BMD as well as their nature in details. At end, the video gives a quick summary on the content overviewed in this lesson. Feel free to contact with our expert tutors, if you face any difficulties in understanding any part of the tutorial.
Mechanics, the study of forces and physical bodies, underpins a very large proportion of all forms of engineering. A thorough understanding of mechanics is essential to any successful engineer. This course helps develop an understanding of the nature of forces with consideration for how they may be simplified in an engineering context. The conditions of equilibrium are then used to solve a number of problems in 2D and 3D before moving on to a broad range of topics including centroids, distributed loads, friction and virtual work. The course will also provide an introduction to dynamics, with a particular focus on the effects that forces have upon motion.
