Question

if
a simply supported span is reduced by 10 percent , what will Happen
to deflection ?

Answer #1

Deflection of the beam decreases as length or span of the beam decreases.

For simple supported beam, cantilever, udl, uvl. if we calculate the deflection by using any method. you we get

deflection(d)= constant*(wL^{4}/EI)

Where

W=load

L is length of beam

E is Young's modulus

I is moment of inertia

If w, E, I are considered as constant, because we are talking
about length be or span of the beam. Then from the above term it
clearly shows that deflection is directly proportional to
length^{4}

So, finally we can conclude that deflection decreases as length decreases.

if span reduced by 10% , then deflection reduces by 40%.

A 356 x 171 US45 steel beam is simply supported at the ends of a
span of 5.5 m. The beam carries a safe inclusive UDL of 12kN/m and
a point load of 75 kN at mid-span. Calculate the maximum deflection
due to this load.
Let:
E = 205 000 N/mm2
I = 12070 cm4
deflection δPL = PL/48EI
deflection δudL = 5wL3/384EI

Consider a simply supported one-way slab over a 15ft span, 6in
thick with #5 bars at 12" on top and #5 bars 12" at bottom.
Do the following:
(a) total load
(b) Concrete slab thickness change to 6.5 inches.
(c) If footer were drop 3in what will happen?

A simply supported beam of constant EI and length L is
supporting a distributed load omega w over its entire span.
Determine the deflection of the beam at L/3 using Catigliano's
method.

For a simply supported beam of length L and uniform
cross-section (constant E and I with usual notation) with a
concentrated load P perpendicular to the beam at mid span, use
first principles and method of integration discussed to obtain an
expression for the maximum deflection.
If the concentrated load is still perpendicular to the beam but
not at the mid span, very clearly and briefly explain how you would
determine the maximum deflection of the beam.

A rectangular RC beam is simply supported over a span of 8m and
carries a dead load of 15kN/m (including self-weight) and an
imposed load of 8kN/m. The beam is 250mm wide and has an effective
depth of 400mm. Grade 30 concrete is to be used.
Determine if the beam should be singly reinforced or
doubly reinforced.

A Douglas fir 4x8 beam (select structural) is simply-supported
(unbraced) and has a span of 10 FT. it is subject to a dead load of
200 PLF and a live load of 100 PLF. The beam is in an outdoor
environment which is not expected to be extremely hot for sustained
periods.

Please select the reinforcement spacing for the entire span of a
simply supported beam on a 22 ft span. Use the detailed method to
calculate Vc. Do not use a shear envelope diagram use the regular
shear force diagram. Use b = 16 in., d = 27 in., the main bending
reinforcement consists of 4 #9 bars. The unfactored dead and live
loads are 2.6 Kip/ft and 2.5 kip/ft, respectively, f’c = 4500 psi,
