Lecture #7 Part a 2D Rigid Body Equilibrium
(Reference Chapter 5, sections 1, 2, 3 and 4 – 2D)

Example of Rigid Body Equilibrium
Can we solve for the Reaction at each wheel on this truck using Translational Equilibrium? Is this problem Statically Indeterminate?

Sample Problem – Truck Given: Mass of the truck is 310.56 Slugs.
Force pulling the truck is 800 Lbs attached at the bumper 1.5 ft off the ground and acting parallel to the ground. The distance between the wheels is 15 ft Center of Gravity is 5 ft in front of the rear wheel There is an equal force on each tire toward the back of the truck to offset the pulling force

Free Body Diagrams show all Unknown External Forces
Unknown external forces are also known as constraints Constraints on Space Diagrams need to be replaced with the correct reactionary forces on the Free Body Diagram In a real world problem, the type of constraint at each reaction point needs to be determined

The truck ramp has a weight of 400 lb.
APPLICATIONS The truck ramp has a weight of 400 lb. The ramp is pinned to the body of the truck and held in the position by the cable. How can we determine the cable tension and support reactions ? How are the idealized model and the free body diagram used to do this? Which diagram above is the idealized model? Statics:The Next Generation (2nd Ed.) Mehta, Danielson, & Berg Lecture Notes for Sections 5.1,5.2

APPLICATIONS (continued)
Two smooth pipes, each having a mass of 300 kg, are supported by the tines of the tractor fork attachment. How can we determine all the reactive forces ? Again, how can we make use of an idealized model and a free body diagram to answer this question? Statics:The Next Generation (2nd Ed.) Mehta, Danielson, & Berg Lecture Notes for Sections 5.1,5.2

CONDITIONS FOR RIGID-BODY EQUILIBRIUM
(Section 5.1) In contrast to the forces on a particle, the forces on a rigid-body are not usually concurrent and may cause rotation of the body (due to the moments created by the forces). Forces on a particle For a rigid body to be in equilibrium, the net force as well as the net moment about any arbitrary point O must be equal to zero.  F = 0 (no translation) and  MO = 0 (no rotation) Forces on a rigid body Write scaler equations on board Statics:The Next Generation (2nd Ed.) Mehta, Danielson, & Berg Lecture Notes for Sections 5.1,5.2

THE PROCESS OF SOLVING RIGID BODY EQUILIBRIUM PROBLEMS
For analyzing an actual physical system, first we need to create an idealized model (above right). Then we need to draw a free-body diagram (FBD) showing all the external (active and reactive) forces. Finally, we need to apply the equations of equilibrium to solve for any unknowns. Statics:The Next Generation (2nd Ed.) Mehta, Danielson, & Berg Lecture Notes for Sections 5.1,5.2

FREE-BODY DIAGRAMS (Section 5.2)
Free-body diagram (FBD) 1. Draw an outlined shape. Imagine the body to be isolated or cut “free” from its constraints and draw its outlined shape. Idealized model 2. Show all the external forces and couple moments. These typically include: a) applied loads, b) support reactions, and, c) the weight of the body. Statics:The Next Generation (2nd Ed.) Mehta, Danielson, & Berg Lecture Notes for Sections 5.1,5.2

FREE-BODY DIAGRAMS (continued)
Idealized model Free-body diagram 3. Label loads and dimensions on the FBD: All known forces and couple moments should be labeled with their magnitudes and directions. For the unknown forces and couple moments, use letters like Ax, Ay, MA, etc.. Indicate any necessary dimensions. Statics:The Next Generation (2nd Ed.) Mehta, Danielson, & Berg Lecture Notes for Sections 5.1,5.2

SUPPORT REACTIONS IN 2-D
A few example sets of diagrams s are shown above. Other support reactions are given in your textbook (Table 5-1). 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 moment is exerted on the body in the opposite direction. Statics:The Next Generation (2nd Ed.) Mehta, Danielson, & Berg Lecture Notes for Sections 5.1,5.2

The uniform truck ramp has a weight of 400 lb.
APPLICATIONS A The uniform truck ramp has a weight of 400 lb. The ramp is pinned at A and held in the position by the cable. How can we determine the forces acting at the pin A and the force in the cable ? Statics:The Next Generation (2nd Ed.) Mehta, Danielson, & Berg Lecture Notes for Sections 5.3,5.4

APPLICATIONS (continued)
A 850 lb of engine is supported by three chains, which are attached to the spreader bar of a hoist. You need to check to see if the breaking strength of any of the chains is going to be exceeded. How can you determine the force acting in each of the chains? Statics:The Next Generation (2nd Ed.) Mehta, Danielson, & Berg Lecture Notes for Sections 5.3,5.4

EQUATIONS OF EQUILIBRIUM (Section 5.3)
A body is subjected to a system of forces that lie in the x-y plane. When in equilibrium, the net force and net moment acting on the body are zero (as discussed earlier in Section 5.1). This 2-D condition can be represented by the three scalar equations:  Fx =  Fy = 0  MO = 0 where point O is any arbitrary point. Please note that these equations are the ones most commonly used for solving 2-D equilibrium problems. There are two other sets of equilibrium equations that are rarely used. For your reference, they are described in the textbook. Statics:The Next Generation (2nd Ed.) Mehta, Danielson, & Berg Lecture Notes for Sections 5.3,5.4

TWO-FORCE MEMBERS & THREE FORCE-MEMBERS (Section 5.4)
The solution to some equilibrium problems can be simplified if we recognize members that are subjected to forces at only two points (e.g., at points A and B). If we apply the equations of equilibrium to such a member, we can quickly determine that the resultant forces at A and B must be equal in magnitude and act in the opposite directions along the line joining points A and B. Statics:The Next Generation (2nd Ed.) Mehta, Danielson, & Berg Lecture Notes for Sections 5.3,5.4

EXAMPLE OF TWO-FORCE MEMBERS
In the cases above, members AB can be considered as two-force members, provided that their weight is neglected. This fact simplifies the equilibrium analysis of some rigid bodies since the directions of the resultant forces at A and B are thus known (along the line joining points A and B). Statics:The Next Generation (2nd Ed.) Mehta, Danielson, & Berg Lecture Notes for Sections 5.3,5.4

STEPS FOR SOLVING 2-D EQUILIBRIUM PROBLEMS
1. If not given, establish a suitable x - y coordinate system. 2. Draw a free body diagram (FBD) of the object under analysis. 3. Apply the three equations of equilibrium (E-of-E) to solve for the unknowns. Statics:The Next Generation (2nd Ed.) Mehta, Danielson, & Berg Lecture Notes for Sections 5.3,5.4

IMPORTANT NOTES 1. If there are 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 order in which we apply equations may affect the simplicity of the solution. For example, if we have two unknown vertical forces and one unknown horizontal force, then solving  FX = 0 first allows us to find the horizontal unknown quickly. 3. 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. Statics:The Next Generation (2nd Ed.) Mehta, Danielson, & Berg Lecture Notes for Sections 5.3,5.4

Put the x and y axes in the horizontal and vertical directions, respectively. 2. Determine if there are any two-force members. 3. Draw a complete FBD of the boom. 4.
