1 Shear Center in ThinWalled Beams Lab Shear flow is developed in beams with thinwalled cross sections shear flow (q sx ): shear force per unit length along cross section q sx =τ sx t behaves much like a flow, especially at junctions in cross section shear flow acts along tangent (s) direction on cross section there is a normal component, τ nx, but it is very small e.g., because it must be zero at ±t/2 shear force: q sx ds (acting in s direction) Shear flow arises from presence of shear loads, V y or V z needed to counter unbalanced bending stresses, σ x to determine, must analyze equilibrium in axial (x) direction Shear center: resultant of shear flow on section must equal V y and V z moment due to q sx must be equal to moment due to V y and V z shear center: point about which moment due to shear flow is zero not applying transverse loads through shear center will cause a twisting of the beam about the x axis AE3145 Shear Center Lab (S2k) Slide 1
2 Approach for Lab Apply transverse loading to tip of a cantilever thinwalled beam use crossarm at tip to apply both a lateral force and twisting mom. measure bending deflection measure twisting vary location of load point along crossarm repeat for beam rotated 90 deg. about x axis Data analysis record deflections using LVDT plot twisting versus load position on crossarm determine location on crossarm where load produces no twisting Compare the measured shear center with theoretical location shear flow calculations used to compute shear center consider both y axis and z axis loading (rotated 90 deg) AE3145 Shear Center Lab (S2k) Slide 2
3 Review from AE2120 (2751), AE3120 Bending of beams with unsymmetrical cross sections bending stress depends on I y, I z and I yz neutral surface is no longer aligned with z or y axes Shear stresses are computed from axial force equilibrium shear stress needed to counter changing σ x analysis strictly correct for rectangular sections only Thinwalled cross sections thin walls support bending stress just like a solid section (no change) thin walls support shear stress in tangential direction transverse shear component is negligable... because it must vanish at the free surfaces (edges of cross section) shear flow: τ xs t (force/unit length along section) shear flow must be equivalent to V y and V z so it must: produce same vertical and horizontal force (V x and V y ) produce same mumoment about any point in cross section point about which no moment is developed: SHEAR CENTER lateral load must be applied through SC to avoid twisting beam twisting loads will cause section to twist about SC (center of rotation) AE3145 Shear Center Lab (S2k) Slide 3

5 Lab Procedure 1. Determine the beam material properties from reference material (e.g., referenced textbooks or MIL Handbook 5 which can be found in the GT Library). 2. Find the centroid of the given beam crosssection. 3. Determine Iz, I y, I yz for the given section. 4. Determine the shear flow distribution on the crosssection for a V y shear load. 5. Determine the shear flow distribution on the crosssection for a V z shear load. 6. Determine the shear center for the crosssection. 7. Using data from the lab, determine the measured location of the shear center and compare this with the location determined in step 6 above. AE3145 Shear Center Lab (S2k) Slide 5
