next question enough ! you can start from either. It makes no difference

let me try again let me out of here why did you pick that?

next question enough ! taking moments about a point so as to eliminate an unknown force (the reaction) is always good

let me try again let me out of here when you next calculate the anti-clockwise moments you will have the unknown reaction force at B

next question enough ! (200 N x 2 m) + (100 N x 6 m) = 1000 Nm = 1 kNm

let me try again let me out of here we are talking about moments not just forces. Remember what a moment is.

let me try again let me out of here we are talking about moments not just forces. Remember what a moment is and what are the units for moments

next question enough ! now that we’ve got the clockwise moments we want to equate them to the anti-clockwise moments to see what we get.

let me try again let me out of here would be useful if we were after the reaction force at B

next question enough ! (W N x 4 m) = 4W Nm

let me try again let me out of here how did you get that? Remember what a moment is.

let me try again let me out of here how did you get that? Remember what the units for moments are. M = F x D

next question enough ! clockwise moments = anti-clockwise moments about a point if the system is in equilibrium

let me try again let me out of here what would that give us?

next question enough ! 4 W = 1000, so W = 250 and W is a force So units are Newtons

let me try again let me out of here is W a moment or a force? So what are its units?

next question enough ! pin joint = 2 reactions + simple support = 1 reaction gives 3 reactions in total. That means it is statically determinate we can use the 3 equations of static equilibrium to determine the reactions

let me try again let me out of here how many reactions does a pin joint produce? How many does a simple support? So how many are there in total?

next question enough ! you can start either with equating the sum of the reactions to the total load or you can find the sum of the moments. This will give you the sum of the reactions However, to actually find one of the reactions you should start by taking moments

let me try again let me out of here what will that give you? Are there any horizontal forces?

next question enough ! the sum of the upward forces = the sum of the downward forces total reaction forces = total load forces

let me try again let me out of here how did you get that? total upward forces = total downward forces

next question enough ! now we have to actually determine one of the reactions

let me try again let me out of here c’mon, you can do it

let me try again let me out of here what will that give you? Are there any horizontal forces?

next question enough ! before we take moments we need to decide on the right point about which we take the moments

let me try again let me out of here where are you going to take these moments about?

next question enough ! we should take moments about a point so as to eliminate one of the unknown reactions. Remember that there is no moment about a point through which the force passes

let me try again let me out of here you could – but you would still be left with both unknown reactions

next question enough ! that’s right. It doesn’t matter which we do first

let me try again let me out of here yes that’s fine but …..

next question enough ! exactly !!

let me try again let me out of here this is just a force

let me try again let me out of here we did say clockwise moments

let me try again let me out of here we did say clockwise moments – not sum the loads

next question enough ! exactly !! The moment is F (R R kN) x D (6.5 m)

let me try again let me out of here this is just a force

let me try again let me out of here the units are ok but this is just a force Think! what is a moment

let me try again let me out of here But R L goes through point A So what does that mean about the moment of R L about A?

next question enough !

let me try again let me out of here we’ve got everything we need for the moment!

let me try again let me out of here you’re nearly there

next question enough ! we’re nearly at the end

let me try again let me out of here Where did you get 28 from? What was the sum of the clockwise moments?

let me try again let me out of here R R is a force. What are the units of a force?

next question enough ! We could take moments about RR (and maybe you should for practice’s sake) But this is simpler

let me try again let me out of here but there’s an easier way (Actually you should for practice’s sake)

next question enough ! 28.00 = 16.15 + R L R L = 11.85

let me try again let me out of here How did you get that? ΣV = 28 So how can R L be more than 28?

next question enough ! 3 possible reactions means that the system is statically determinate

let me try again let me out of here I would have thought you would have this pat by now How many possible reactions are there?

next question enough ! good one !!

let me try again let me out of here but then what ?

let me try again let me out of here but we need to do something first ?

next question enough ! yes ! 3 kN per m times 8 m = 24 kN

let me try again let me out of here how did you arrive at that ? The UDL is 3 kN/m and the length is 8 m

let me try again let me out of here I thought we had this straight We are after a force !

next question enough ! yes ! Uniformly distributed means that we have symmetry. So it is equally balanced

let me try again let me out of here how did you arrive at that ? It is a uniformly distributed load, i.e. UDL over the beam. So ?

next question enough ! yes ! Force (24 kN) x Distance (4 m) = 96 kNm 8m M 4m ABC 24 kN

let me try again let me out of here how did you arrive at that ? M = F x D What is the force? What is the distance?

let me try again let me out of here I thought we had this straight. What are the units for moments M = F x (times) D

next question enough !

let me try again let me out of here how would we do that?

next question enough ! yes ! This way we eliminate one unknown force

let me try again let me out of here what would that give us? Wouldn’t we still have two unknown forces?

next question enough ! either will do

next question enough ! (6 x 2) kNm + (16 x 4) kNm + (2 x 8) kNm = 92 kNm

let me try again let me out of here you can’t just sum the forces. Try summing the moments

let me try again let me out of here How did you get that What are the forces? How far is each force from A?

next question enough ! Doing well!

let me try again let me out of here We haven’t finished with A yet

next question enough ! Force = R R kN and distance = 6 m

let me try again let me out of here What’s the force? What’s the distance of this force from A? THINK

let me try again let me out of here How did you get that? How far is R R from A?

next question enough ! well on the way !

let me try again let me out of here we haven’t finished getting a value for R R

next question enough ! Doing well!

let me try again let me out of here Didn’t we say that the anti-clockwise moments = 6 x R R kNm

next question enough ! that’s why we have the equations

let me try again let me out of here We could … but there is a simpler way ( actually you should for practice)

next question enough ! makes life simple

let me try again let me out of here do we have any horizontal forces?

let me try again let me out of here we’ve already done that

next question enough ! another question bites the dust

let me try again let me out of here what is the total load? How can the reaction exceed the total load?

let me try again let me out of here Haven’t we got this straight yet? Isn’t the reaction a force? What are the units for force?

next question enough ! Moments turn. The wind force produces a moment which tends to overturn the building

let me try again let me out of here forces don’t overturn things What does overturn things?

let me try again let me out of here how exactly is the weight going to overturn the building? Actually, the weight is our friend

next question enough ! OTM = F x D = 16 kN x 2 m = 32 kNm

let me try again let me out of here this just the force. What happened to the moment?

let me try again let me out of here By now you should know the units for moments. You should go back to the fundamental concepts M = F x D

next question enough ! yes! Moments turn things !

let me try again let me out of here Repeat after me forces do not turn things !! …..

next question enough ! RM = F (20 kN) x D (1.5 m) = 30 kNm

let me try again let me out of here This is just the weight (force). We are talking about moments

let me try again let me out of here Where is the weight acting? How far is this from A?

next question enough ! OTM = 32, RM = 30, OTM > RM

let me try again let me out of here what is the OTM? what is the RM? which is greater?

let me try again let me out of here there’s no maybe about this ! Think again

the end ! well done ! (i) increase the weight of the building to at least 32/1.5 = 21.4kN (ii) lower the height of the building so that the action of the wind is lowered by at least 125 mm (to 1.875m above ground) (iii) make the building base wider - at least 3.2 m wide (iv) fix it to the ground. It will act as a cantilever

let me try again let me out of here is that it?
