Yielding Support

Problem 725 | Propped beam with partially restrained wall and settling simple support

Problem 725
If the support under the propped beam in Problem 724 settles an amount $\delta$, show that the propped reaction decreases by $3EI\delta / L^3$.

Problem 724 | Propped beam with partially restrained wall support

Problem 724
The beam shown in Fig. P-724 is only partially restrained at the wall so that, after the uniformly distributed load is applied, the slope at the wall is $w_oL^3 / 48EI$ upward to the right. If the supports remain at the same level, determine $R$.



Thermal Stress

Temperature changes cause the body to expand or contract. The amount δT, is given by

$\delta_T = \alpha L \, (T_f \, - \, T_i) = \alpha L \, \Delta T$

where α is the coefficient of thermal expansion in m/m°C, L is the length in meter, Ti and Tf are the initial and final temperatures, respectively in °C. For steel, α = 11.25 × 10-6 m/m°C.

If temperature deformation is permitted to occur freely, no load or stress will be induced in the structure. In some cases where temperature deformation is not permitted, an internal stress is created. The internal stress created is termed as thermal stress.
