1 Shawn Kenny, Ph.D., P.Eng. Assistant Professor Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science Memorial University of Newfoundland ENGI 1313 Mechanics I Lecture 21:Force and Couple Moment Systems

2 ENGI 1313 Statics I – Lecture 21© 2007 S. Kenny, Ph.D., P.Eng. 2 Lecture 21 Objective to determine the effect of moving a force, to find an equivalent single force-couple system for a system of forces and couples.

3 ENGI 1313 Statics I – Lecture 21© 2007 S. Kenny, Ph.D., P.Eng. 3 Motivation for Equivalent Systems Force and Couple System  Number of loads acting on body Simplify Loading  Reduce to equivalent system Examine Effects on Body  External equivalence only  Internal effects (load- displacement) are influence but not considered in this course

4 ENGI 1313 Statics I – Lecture 21© 2007 S. Kenny, Ph.D., P.Eng. 4 Motivation for Equivalent Systems (cont.) ?

5 ENGI 1313 Statics I – Lecture 21© 2007 S. Kenny, Ph.D., P.Eng. 5 Equivalent Force Initial Single Force  Principle of transmissibility Sliding vector  External effect equivalence only

6 ENGI 1313 Statics I – Lecture 21© 2007 S. Kenny, Ph.D., P.Eng. 6 Equivalent Force and Couple Initial Single Force  Couple moment is a free vector Equivalent system force not on the line of action of initial system force  External effect equivalence only

7 ENGI 1313 Statics I – Lecture 21© 2007 S. Kenny, Ph.D., P.Eng. 7 Illustration of Equivalent Force and Couple for a Single Force System Equivalent Force (Sliding Vector) Equivalent Force (Sliding Vector) and Couple Moment (Free Vector)

8 ENGI 1313 Statics I – Lecture 21© 2007 S. Kenny, Ph.D., P.Eng. 8 Equivalent Force and Couple Initial Multiple Force System  Equivalent system force not on the line of action of initial system force  Couple moment is a free vector  External effect equivalence only

15 ENGI 1313 Statics I – Lecture 21© 2007 S. Kenny, Ph.D., P.Eng. 15 Comprehension Quiz The forces on the pole can be reduced to a single force and a single moment at point ____.  A) P  B) Q  C) R  D) S  E) Any of these points. Answer: E P Q R S

16 ENGI 1313 Statics I – Lecture 21© 2007 S. Kenny, Ph.D., P.Eng. 16 Comprehension Quiz arbitrary Consider two couples acting on a body. The simplest possible equivalent system at any arbitrary point on the body will have  A) one force and one couple moment  B) one force  C) one couple moment  D) two couple moments Answer: C

17 ENGI 1313 Statics I – Lecture 21© 2007 S. Kenny, Ph.D., P.Eng. 17 Comprehension Quiz Three couples act on a body. The equivalent system will be ________ at different points on the body.  A) different when located  B) the same even when located  C) zero when located  D) none of the above Answer: B

18 ENGI 1313 Statics I – Lecture 21© 2007 S. Kenny, Ph.D., P.Eng. 18 Example For the force and couple system, find (a) the equivalent resultant force and couple moment acting at Point A and (b) the equivalent single force location along the beam AB.
