BMayer@ChabotCollege.edu ENGR-36_Lec-24_Dist_Loads.pptx 2 Bruce Mayer, PE Engineering-36: Engineering Mechanics - Statics Distributed Loads  The Load on an Object may be Spread out, or Distributed over the surface. Load Profile, w(x)

BMayer@ChabotCollege.edu ENGR-36_Lec-24_Dist_Loads.pptx 3 Bruce Mayer, PE Engineering-36: Engineering Mechanics - Statics Distributed Loads  If the Load Profile, w(x), is known then the distributed load can be replaced with at POINT Load at a SPECIFIC Location  Magnitude of the Point Load, W, is Determined by Area Under the Profile Curve

BMayer@ChabotCollege.edu ENGR-36_Lec-24_Dist_Loads.pptx 4 Bruce Mayer, PE Engineering-36: Engineering Mechanics - Statics Distributed Loads  To Determine the Point Load Location employ Moments (1 st Moment of Force)  Recall: Moment = [LeverArm][Intensity]  In This Case LeverArm = The distance from the Baseline Origin, x n Intensity = The Increment of Load, dW n, which is that load, w(x n ) covering a distance dx located at x n –That is: dW n = w(x n )dx

BMayer@ChabotCollege.edu ENGR-36_Lec-24_Dist_Loads.pptx 6 Bruce Mayer, PE Engineering-36: Engineering Mechanics - Statics Distributed Loads on Beams A distributed load is represented by plotting the load per unit length, w (N/m). The total load is equal to the area under the load curve. A distributed load can be REPLACED by a concentrated load with a magnitude equal to the area under the load curve and a line of action passing through the areal centroid.

BMayer@ChabotCollege.edu ENGR-36_Lec-24_Dist_Loads.pptx 8 Bruce Mayer, PE Engineering-36: Engineering Mechanics - Statics Example:Trapezoidal Load Profile  A beam supports a distributed load as shown. Determine the equivalent concentrated load and the reactions at the supports.  Solution Plan The magnitude of the concentrated load is equal to the total load (the area under the curve) The line of action of the concentrated load passes through the centroid of the area under the Load curve. Determine the support reactions by summing moments about the beam ends

BMayer@ChabotCollege.edu ENGR-36_Lec-24_Dist_Loads.pptx 9 Bruce Mayer, PE Engineering-36: Engineering Mechanics - Statics Example:Trapezoidal Load Profile SOLUTION: The magnitude of the concentrated load is equal to the total load, or the area under the curve. The line of action of the concentrated load passes through the area centroid of the curve.
