What use are the Internal Loads?: What use are the Internal Loads? In terms of the grand scheme of things, why do we need to find the internal loads?
Stresses are determined by the bending moment and shear stresses are determined by the maximum shear force and the maximum torsional moments.
NOT ALL MAXIMUM FORCES OCCUR AT TH SUPPORTS!
General Solution Scheme: General Solution Scheme The general scheme for finding the internal set of forces is
a) Draw the free-body diagram
b) Determine the support reactions
c) Apply the equations of equilibrium

Internal force act along the axis
Torque acts along the axis of symmetry
From the internal forces we can obtain “axial force diagram” and from the torques we can obtain a “torque diagram” along the axis of symmetry.
Force Diagrams: Force Diagrams Force diagrams show the all of the internal forces acting in the member.

Axial Forces: Axial Forces Draw the free-body diagram and solve for the forces acting on the body.
Take sections at each point a transition occurs and solve for the interior forces acting at each point. A transition is a point where a new force is applied. Use equilibrium to solve the problem.
Draw the axial force diagram using the information from the internal forces.

Torque: Torque Torque is a moment acting about the central axis of the body. For a shaft
The double arrow represents the moment at a point
Torque: Torque Solve the torque using equilibrium to find all of the moments.
Cut a section at a transition point (torque is applied) and solve the internal moment at the point bring the system back to equilibrium and this is the torque at the point.
Using this information to draw the torque diagram.

Internal Forces and Bending Moment: Internal Forces and Bending Moment Three internal force act in members frames and beams, axial load, F, shear force, V, and bending moment, M.
The axial load, F, is in either compression or tension and acts along the centroid of the member.
The shear force, V, acts perpendicular to the surface of the cut or section.
