Principle of SuperpositionThis fundamental principle states:The total displacements {ux(xP), uy(xP), (xP)} or internal forces {N(xP), V(xP), M(xP)} at a particular point P of abscissa xP in a planar structure subjected to a set of external loads acting simultaneously can be determined by adding together (i.e. superimposing) the displacements or internal forces produced by each of the external loads acting individually[4]

Principle of SuperpositionTwo requirements must be imposed for this principle to apply:The material must behave in a linear elastic manner, i.e. the Hookes law is valid, and therefore displacements are proportional to external loads The geometry of the structure must no undergo significant change when loads are applied, i.e. small displacement theory applies

[5]

Principle of SuperpositionMore concisely:The response of a linear structure is the same if all loads are applied simultaneously, or if the effects of the individual loads are combined

Relations between transverse load, SF and BMLet us consider the beam segment depicted below, which is subjected to a distributed transverse load q=q(x), positive if upward, whose ordinates vary with the abscissa x, measured from the origin, O, at the left of the segment q = q( x)

Relations between transverse load, SF and BM dx 2The beam element shown to the right can be thought as obtained by operating two ideal sections at abscissas x and x+dx Since the length dx of this element is infinitesimally small, the slight variation of the distributed load can M be neglected. Therefore:We can assume that the distributed load q is constant over the length dx The resultant of the distributed load, of magnitude q dx, is located at the midpoint of the element

Relations between transverse load, SF and BM dx 2In order to be in equilibrium, the conditions of statical equilibrium must be satisfied for the infinitesimal beam element The condition of transversal equilibrium gives: dV V + q dx = V + dV =q dx This equation states that the slope of the SF diagram, V=V(x), at a generic abscissa x, equals the ordinate of the distributed load at that abscissa, q(x)

Relations between transverse load, SF and BM dx 2Taking moments about the centroid of the right-hand face of q dx the beam segment, the condition of rotational equilibrium furnishes: dx 2 M + d M = M + V dx + q 2 dM M =V dx This equation states that the the slope of the BM diagram, M=M(x), at a generic abscissa x, is given by V the SF at that abscissa, V(x)

Relations between transverse load, SF and BM dx 2Differentiating both sides of the second equation with respect to the abscissa x, and then substituting the first equation into the result, one obtains:

q dx

d2M =q 2 dx According to our sign conventions, it follows that the BM diagram, M=M(x), at a generic abscissa x, is concave upward/downward if the distributed load at that abscissa, q(x), acts downward/upward

Relations between transverse load, SF and BMMoreover, if the first two differential equations are integrated between two consecutive loading discontinuities, such as external concentrated forces or couples, or support reactions as well, one obtains:

V = q ( x) dxx

M = V ( x ) d xx

Structures with internal hingesFrom a kinematical point of view, an internal hinge can be used in order to model a structural joint which eliminates any relative displacement between the two points which it connects (both horizontally and vertically), while it allows a relative rotation From a statical point of view, an internal hinge transmits both horizontal and vertical components of NF and SF, while it does not transmit BM, i.e. the BM diagram must be zero at the position of an internal hinge

[17]

Structures with internal hingesOn the contrary, an internal fixed joint does not allows a relative rotation between the two points which it connects, and hence it is able to transmit BM (statical-kinematical duality)

[18]

Structures with internal hingesFundamentally, there are two alternative approaches to deal with structures with an internal hinge:Kinematical approach: the structure is handled as composite of two rigid bodies; each one posses three degrees of freedom each and is subjected to the internal reaction forces arising from the internal hinge Statical approach: the structure is thought as made of a single rigid body, having in total three degrees of freedom, but in which a constructive condition imposes that the BM is not transmitted across the internal hinge

KINEMATICAL APPROACH

[21]

STATICAL APPROACH

[22]

Structures with internal hingesMore generally, the statical approach is much more convenient, since it brings to a set of equations in fewer unknowns, which are simply the external reactions In this case the degree of statical indeterminacy, d, is given by

d = f ecwhere f is the number of unknown reactions, e is the number of available conditions of statical equilibrium (e=3) and c is the number of conditions of construction, i.e. the number of the internal hinges
