The objective of this video is to analyze the members in a frame. At first, the video shows the given exemplary frame having two members. The member AB has supported by a fixed support at point A and connected with the member BC at point B. And the member BC has supported by roller support at point C & is subjected to a uniformly distributed load of 2 KN/m across the length of the member. The length of the member BC has given as 3 m and the distance between point A & B is given as 2 m.
Moving on, the video finds out the values of support reaction establishing the equilibrium equations and analyzing the frame as a whole. Subsequently the video draws the FBD of the frame explaining all the facts and figures in greater details. Next, the video splits frame into individual members and applies equilibrium equations at pin joint B. Later, the video applies equilibrium principle to get the unknown values of axial forces developed in member AB and BC through joint B.
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.
