1 Slender Structures Load carrying principles Basic cases: Extension, Shear, Torsion, Cable Bending (Euler) v017-1 Hans Welleman 1

2 Content (preliminary schedule) Basic cases Extension, shear, torsion, cable Bending (Euler-Bernoulli) Combined systems - Parallel systems - Special system Bending (Timoshenko) Continuously Elastic Supported (basic) Cases Cable revisit and Arches Matrix Method Hans Welleman

3 Learning trajectory Order of topics based on increasing complexity of the governing differential equation (!!! not in line with the notes!!!) Recap of math partly in class but primarily DIY! Extensive use of MAPLE, so install MAPLE and get involved in it! Hans Welleman 3

4 Learning objectives Understand the outline of the classical displacement method for finding the ODE s for basic load cases Find the general solution for these loadcases and define the boundary and/or matching conditions for a specific application Solve the ODE s (by hand and MAPLE) Investigate consequences/limitations of the model and check results with limit cases Hans Welleman 4

12 What if Hans Welleman 1

13 Assignment : Foundation Pile Dimensions: l A EA Pile capacity: = 0 m = mm = N - point bearing, modulus of subgrade reaction (Beddingsconstante) c = N/m 3 - (positive) friction or adhesion: Load: F τ = N/m = 500 kn Find the DE to model this pile and the boundary conditions. Solve the DE and plot the normal force distribution in the pile. Find the displacement of the pile tip. Hans Welleman 13

14 Shear shear stiffness k external load q internal generalised stress, shear force V. BC Shear deformation or shear strain γ displacement field w. BC Hans Welleman 14

15 Fundamental relations Kinematic relation γ = dw Constitutive relation V = k γ (Hooke) Equilibrium V + q + V + dv = 0 dv = q dw dv d w V = k = k = q ODE Hans Welleman 15

16 Conclusion Basic Extension and Shear result in an identical ODE We now know all about this. What about the shear stiffness? Hans Welleman 16

17 Shear stiffness for beams 1 (in bending) assumption in this model: - constant V - constant γ discrete model Shear force V is integrated shear stress distribution. 1 Work, energy methods & influence lines, appendix A, ISBN , J.W. Welleman Hans Welleman 17

18 Shear stress due to bending for a rectangular cross section fibre model parabolic shear stress distribution so.. no constant shear stress τ and no constant shear deformation γ Hans Welleman 18

19 Both models should generate the same amount of strain energy E discrete model: 1 1 E = V dw = V γ with: V = k γ discrete 1 1 Fibremodel: ( prereqisuite knowledge ) h z= τ ( z) E fibre = bd z with : τ ( z) = h z= G ( 1 ) 6V h z 4 bh 3 Hans Welleman 19

20 Elaborate z= h z= h τ ( z) G 1 bdz = V γ 1 ( ) h z= 1 b 6 V 4 h z dz V 3 1 G = γ h z= bh 6V γ1 = with: V = k γ1 and A = bh 5GA k 5 GA = GA = with: η = 1, 6 η Hans Welleman 0

21 Cross section is not a plane. V E discrete h γ 1 dw = γ 1 dw Hans Welleman 1

22 Shear Stiffness for Frames Source: Hans Welleman

23 Shear Stiffness k for Frames rigid floors general model Although the frame is loaded in bending a shear beam model can be used based on the global behaviour. Hans Welleman 3

24 Model with rigid floors k =?? use virtual work δu 4Mδγ = Hδu δγ = h M = 1 4 Hh : deformation : zero rotation at foundation : try this quickly.. 3 u Mh Mh Mh Hh 4EI + = 0 u = = = γ h H = γ h 3EI 6EI 6EI 4EI h 4EI thus : k = h Hans Welleman 4

28 Assignment F = 10 kn; k = 1000 kn; a = 5 m; n = 5 Find the displacement at midspan C for both cases Hans Welleman 8

29 So we need an extension Add a degree of freedom (rotation) And add an additional equation (moments) dw γ = + φ d M = V M = V d x NOTE Not in the notes, all shear beams in the notes have zero rotation of the cross sections Hans Welleman 9

30 Torsion torsional stiffness GI t external load m internal generalised stress, shear force M t. BC torsional deformation or specific twist θ displacement field ϕ x. BC Hans Welleman 30

32 Cable 1 cable stiffness H load distributed along the projection of the cable cable without elongation??!! external load q internal generalised stress, vertical component V. BC Cable slope tanα displacement field w. BC Hans Welleman 3

33 Fundamental relations geometrical relation tanα = dz Moment equilibrium Equilibrium V = H tanα V + q + V + dv = 0 dv = q dz dv d z V = H = H = q ODE Hans Welleman 33

34 Remarks Cable takes no bending Cable ODE describes an equilibirum in the deflected state (funicular curve) so this is a non-linear approach! (no superposition) H can be regarded as constant only if no horizontal loads are applied This model is not valid for loads distributed along the cable! Derivation is strictly based upon equilibrium only! Cable force can be expressed in H and z : dz T = H + V = H + ( H tanα ) = H 1+ Hans Welleman 34
