QUESTION: 1

### Δ = displacement caused when force is increased by a small amount P = external force applied N = internal force in the member force applied L = length of member A = cross-sectional area of member E = Modulus of elasticity Same symbol is used for partial and total differentiation and they are pretty obvious.  What will be Δ in case of straight members using theorem?

Solution:

Explanation: On substituting value of internal energy in earlier theorem, we can get this.

QUESTION: 2

### Δ = displacement caused when force is increased by a small amount P = external force applied N = internal force in the member force applied L = length of member A = cross-sectional area of member E = Modulus of elasticity Same symbol is used for partial and total differentiation and they are pretty obvious.  P is treated here as:-

Solution:

Explanation: P is treated as variable and N is expressed in its term for partial differentiation.

QUESTION: 3

### Δ = displacement caused when force is increased by a small amount P = external force applied N = internal force in the member force applied L = length of member A = cross-sectional area of member E = Modulus of elasticity Same symbol is used for partial and total differentiation and they are pretty obvious. Force P is applied in the direction of Δ State whether the above statement is true or false.

Solution:

Explanation: P is applied in above said direction. That is how we have been calculating the work done till now.

QUESTION: 4

Δ = displacement caused when force is increased by a small amount
P = external force applied
N = internal force in the member force applied
L = length of member
A = cross-sectional area of member
E = Modulus of elasticity
Same symbol is used for partial and total differentiation and they are pretty obvious.

N is caused by:-

Solution:

Explanation: It is caused by both the constant external force and variable P.
A beam has been subjected to gradually applied load P1 and P2 causing deflection Δ1 and Δ2.
Gradual increase of dp1 causes subsequent deflection of dΔ1 and dΔ2.

QUESTION: 5

Δ = displacement caused when force is increased by a small amount
P = external force applied
N = internal force in the member force applied
L = length of member
A = cross-sectional area of member
E = Modulus of elasticity
Same symbol is used for partial and total differentiation and they are pretty obvious.

What will be the external work performed during application of load?

Solution:

Explanation: Since loads are gradually applied, work done will be average load times deflection. We can also find by integration.

QUESTION: 6

Δ = displacement caused when force is increased by a small amount
P = external force applied
N = internal force in the member force applied
L = length of member
A = cross-sectional area of member
E = Modulus of elasticity
Same symbol is used for partial and total differentiation and they are pretty obvious.

What will be the work done during additional application of dp1?

Solution:

Explanation: At this time p1 and p2 are already applied, only dp1 is gradually applied.

QUESTION: 7

Δ = displacement caused when force is increased by a small amount
P = external force applied
N = internal force in the member force applied
L = length of member
A = cross-sectional area of member
E = Modulus of elasticity
Same symbol is used for partial and total differentiation and they are pretty obvious.

Additional work done due to application of dp1 is p1 dΔ1 + p2 dΔ2.
Sate whether the above statement is true or false.

Solution:

Explanation: It is true as the third term can be ignored as it is very small.

QUESTION: 8

Δ = displacement caused when force is increased by a small amount
P = external force applied
N = internal force in the member force applied
L = length of member
A = cross-sectional area of member
E = Modulus of elasticity
Same symbol is used for partial and total differentiation and they are pretty obvious.

What will be the work done if all three forces are place at once on the beam?

Solution:

Explanation: Now, since all the loads are gradually applied, all will have a factor of half.

QUESTION: 9

Δ = displacement caused when force is increased by a small amount
P = external force applied
N = internal force in the member force applied
L = length of member
A = cross-sectional area of member
E = Modulus of elasticity
Same symbol is used for partial and total differentiation and they are pretty obvious.

What will be change in work done in both case on initial application of load?

Solution:

Explanation: We will get this by just subtracting two works done. This will be termed as dw.
