**Objectives Students must be able to #1**

Course Objective State the conditions of equilibrium, draw free body diagrams (FBDs), analyse and solve problems involving rigid bodies in equilibrium. Chapter Objectives Analyse objects (particles and rigid bodies) in equilibriums Classify problems in equilibrium into SD and SI categories

**Equilibrium Definition**

stationary An object is in equilibrium when it is stationary or in steady translation relative to an “inertial reference frame”. moving with Constant velocity Whether object in stationary (moving in steady translation) or not, depends on “reference frame”. really equilibrium? Equilibrium Centrifugal acceleration Newtonian Mechanics “Inertial Reference Frame” - Earth Frame - Central Universe Frame Earth At universe

3/1 Introduction A - Equilibrium is the most important subject in statics. In statics, we deal primarily with bodies at rest. (i.e. they are in the state of “equilibrium”). A - More precisely, when a body is in equilibrium, the wrench resultant of all forces acting on it is zero; i.e. These requirements are necessary and sufficient conditions for equilibrium; i.e. If is true body in equilibrium If body in equilibrium is true From the Newton’s second law of motion, a body that moves with constant velocity, rotates with constant angular velocity; i.e. “zero acceleration”, can also be treated as in a state of equilibrium.

5
**Equilibrium in 2D 3/2 Mechanical system isolation Isolate body**

- All physical bodies are inherently 3D, but many may be treated as 2D; e.g. when all forces are on the same plane. 3/2 Mechanical system isolation Before we apply the equilibrium conditions we need to know what force or couple are involved. Isolate body Draw Free Body Diagram (FBD) FBD is used to isolate body (or bodies / system of bodies) so that force/couple acting on it can be identified.

6
**Free Body Diagram (FBD)**

FBD is the sketch of the body under consideration that is isolated from all other bodies or surroundings. The isolation of body clearly separate cause and effects of loads on the body. A thorough understanding of FBD is most vital for solving problems.

7
**Construction of FBD y x y x body in interest**

1) Pick body/combination of bodies to be isolated 2) Isolating the body. Draw “complete external boundary” of the isolated body Free Body Diagram 3) Add all forces and moments (including that are applied by the removed surrounding) y x 150 cm 50 cm 4) Indicate a coordinate system 5) Indicate necessary dimensions Most important step is solving problems in mechanics. *** If an FBD is not drawn (when it is needed), you will get no credit ( 0 point ) for the whole problem!!!! *** 150 cm y x 50 cm

8
**Note on drawing FBD y x Free Body Diagram**

Establish the x, y, z axes in any suitable orientation. Label all the known and unknown force magnitudes and directions on the diagram The sense of a force having an unknown magnitude can be assumed. y x 150 cm 50 cm Use different colours in diagrams Body outline blue Load (force and couple) - red Miscellaneous (dimension, angle, etc.) - black

9
**Equilibrium Solving Procedure**

Formulate problems from physical situations. (Simplify problems by making appropriate assumptions) Draw the free body diagram (FBD) of objects under consideration State the condition of equilibrium Substitute variables from the FBD into the equilibrium equations Substitute the numbers and solve for solutions Delay substitute numbers Use appropriate significant figures Technical judgment and engineering sense Try to predict the answers Is the answer reasonable?

10
**Equilibrium Free Body Diagram (FBD)**

FBD is the sketch of the body under consideration that is isolated from all other bodies or surroundings. The isolation of body clearly separate cause and effects of loads on the body. A thorough understanding of FBD is most vital for solving problems.

11
**Equilibrium FBD Construction**

Select the body to be isolated Draw boundary of isolated body, excluding supports Indicate a coordinate system by drawing axes Add all applied loads (forces and couples) on the isolated body. Add all to support reactions (forces and couples) represent the supports that were removed. Beware of loads or support reactions with specific directions due to physical meanings Add dimensions and other information that are required in the equilibrium equation

12
**Equilibrium Help on FBD**

Establish the x, y axes in any suitable orientation. Label all the known and unknown applied load and support reaction magnitudes Beware of loads or support reactions with specific directions due to physical meanings Otherwise, directions of unknown loads and support reactions can be assumed.

13
**Equilibrium On FBD Analyses**

Objective: To find support reactions Apply the equations of equilibrium Load components are positive if they are directed along a positive direction, and vice versa It is possible to assume positive directions for unknown forces and moments. If the solution yields a negative result, the actual load direction is opposite of that shown in the FBD.

15
**Particles FBD construction**

To construct a complete FBD of a particle Select the particle to be isolated Draw the particle as a point Indicate a coordinate system Add all active forces/moments (weight, etc.) Add all support reactions (e.g. tension in the tangential direction of a cable, tensile and compressive forces in a compressed and stretched springs)

16
**Particles Equilibrium Analyses #2**

Equations of Equilibrium Apply the equations of equilibrium Components are positive if they are directed along a positive axis, and negative if they are directed along a negative axis. Assume the directions of unknown forces in the positive x, and y axes. If the solution yields a negative result, this indicates the sense of the force is the reverse of that shown on the FBD.

2D Equilibrium Equilibrium of 2D Rigid Bodies Use similar analyses as the particles Additional consideration Action forces in supports/constraints Free-body diagram (FBD) of 2D rigid bodies Equilibrium equations (scalar form) for rigid bodies Two-force and three-force members

32
Force Reaction (2D) To write an FBD, first, you will need to know what kind of force we will get when eliminating the environment/surrounding. 1) Flexible cable, belt, chain, or rope always away from the body T T tangent to the cable

33
**Not always this direction only this direction**

2) Smooth surfaces - Contact force at contact point normal to the surface/contact plane only this direction N - always compressive 3) Rough surfaces Not always this direction A rough surface can produce a tangential force (F, friction) as well as a normal force (N) direction of F depend on situations (chapter 6) N F R only this direction

34
**M existence due to its bending resistance**

4) Roller supports N - Roller, rocker, or ball transmits a compressive force normal to the supporting surface only this direction N 5) Freely sliding guide The vector N may be up or down depend on problem. If not known, you may assume any of the two. After further calculation, if N is +, correct sense was assumed. If negative, N goes the other way. N not always this direction N M M existence due to its bending resistance

35
6) Pin connection Pin free to turn Pin not free to turn Rx Ry Rx Ry M not always this direction As a general rule, if a support prevents translation of a body in a given direction, then a force is developed on the body in the opposite direction. Similarly, if rotation is prevented, a couple is exerted on the body. 7) Built-in or fixed support A not always this direction M F V Weld A A

36
**m G W=mg x F F 8) Gravitational attraction**

Resultant of the gravitational attraction is the weight W = mg and act toward center of the earth passing through the center mass G m G W=mg 9) Spring action F x is positive x is negative x F Normal distance For linear springs , F = kx

We can find the wrench resultant force P P “equilibrium” “equilibrium” P Equilibrium conditions (3D) of the body is equivalents to (for some point P ) We can prove this! (for all point O) - For co-planer forces only (2D), eq conditions is equivalents to Fx= Fy = Mo = (for all point O) (2D) Fx= Fy = Mo = (for some point O) (2D)

59
**2D Equilibrium Procedure #1**

Free-Body Diagram Establish the x, y axes in any suitable orientation. Draw an outlined shape of the body. Show all the forces and couple moments acting on the body. Label all the loadings and specify their directions relative to the x, y axes. The sense of a force or couple moment having an unknown magnitude but known line of action can be assumed. Indicate the dimensions of the body necessary for computing the moments of forces.

60
**2D Equilibrium Procedure #2**

Equations of Equilibrium When applying the force equilibrium equations, orient the x and y axes along lines that will provide the simplest resolution of the forces into their x and y components. If the solution of the equilibrium equations yields a negative scalar for a force or couple moment magnitude, this indicate that the sense is opposite to that which was assumed on the FBD.

61
**2D Equilibrium Procedure #3**

Equations of Equilibrium Apply the moment equation of equilibrium about a point O that lies at the intersection of the lines of action of two unknown forces. In this way, the moments of these unknowns are zero about O, and a direct solution for the third unknown can be determined.

103
**x Note on Solving Problems**

1. If we have more unknowns than the number of independent equations, then we have a statically indeterminate situation. We cannot solve these problems using just statics. 2. The point (axis) which we check for the moment, affects the simplicity of the solution. Choosing appropriate one is the key for fast problem solving. The order in which we apply equations may affect the simplicity of the solution. For example, solving FX = O first allows us to find the first unknown quickly. x 4. If the answer for an unknown comes out as negative number, then the sense (direction) of the unknown force is opposite to that assumed when starting the problem. N If you get N<0, something wrong!
