Analyze Simply Supported Beam with Point and Uniform Moment  Summary and Q&A
TL;DR
This lecture discusses point and uniform moments in simply supported beams and provides examples and instructions on how to analyze and model them.
Questions & Answers
Q: What is a simply supported beam?
A simply supported beam is a type of structural element that is supported at each end and is free to rotate and undergo vertical deflection.
Q: How can you create a beam model in the software program?
To create a beam model, you need to specify the name, location, length, and force unit. Then, you can define the properties of the beam, such as its length and material. Finally, you can assign support conditions and apply loads.
Q: What is the difference between a point moment and a uniform moment?
A point moment is a concentrated moment applied at a specific location on the beam, while a uniform moment is a distributed moment applied along the entire length of the beam.
Q: How do you analyze the beam model?
After creating the beam model, you can analyze it by running an analysis in the software program. This will generate results such as deflected shape, bending moment diagram, shear force diagram, reaction forces, and displacement.
