  1. simply supported beams as we all know contain 2 supports at its ends, to support the beam.
  2. simply supported beams can be seen in several structure arounds us .
  3. the main thing to learn about simply supported beams is that the support reaction will be always equal to the point load concentrated on the beams.
  4. you can easily calc the rxn of the beams by applying the equilibrium condition into it

What is a simply supported slab?

The slabs that are supported only at end are called simply supported slabs i.e. there is no intermediate supports in the slab and there will be no support moment acting on the slab.


What are the different between simply supported restrained beam and simply supported unrestrained beam?

because the deflection in simple suported beam is more due to the orestriction at the ends as the ends are freely supported by twoo supports


How many degree of freedom does a simply supported beam have?

Both translation & rotation


What is a fixed beam and how is different from a simply supported beam?

beam which fixed for both the ends i.e, there no deflection as well as no slope at their fixed ends. but for simply supported beam, both the ends are free to rotate & there is no deflections at their free ends.


Advantages of fixed beam over a simply supported beam?

There isn't really an advantage of having a fixed beam vs. a simply supported beam, it depends on what application the beam is for. If one of the design criteria of the beam is that it be able to deflect from one end to another then you are going to want to use a fixed beam. For example such applications could include a diving bored. A simply supported beam differs from a fixed beam because the beam is supported at both ends. Thus when a simply supported beam is loaded, the deflection will occur throughout the beam, since the ends are confined and will remain as they were. Furthermore on a fixed beam, (the end that is fixed) will have restrictive forces and moments keeping the end from moving.

How do you calculate reactions for a simply supported beam loaded with a uniformly distributed load?

For finding reactions for simply supported beam with uniformly distributed load, first we have to convert the u.d.l into a single point load. And then we have to consider it to be a simply supported beam with a point load and solve it. I think you know how to calculate the reactions for beam with point load.

What is a simply supported slab?

What is propped simply supported beam?

A cantilever beam is a beam which is fixed at one end ( no translation or rotation). A propped cantilever beam is a beam which is fixed at one end ( no translation or rotation) and simply supported ( no translation) at the other end. A cantilever beam is a beam which is fixed at one end ( no translation or rotation). A simply supported beam is a beam which is simply supported at both ends. A propped simply supported beam is a beam which is simply supported at both ends and simply supported at some other point such as at the center, to reduce deflection under load. Propped beams are statically indeterminate.

Is scientific evidence supported with theories?

You have it backwards. Theories are supported by evidence. Evidence is not supported by theories, evidence is simply observed.

Can you design continuous beam as simply supported beams?

No


What are the advantages and disadvantages of a simply supported beam?

A simply supported beam requires less work to install. However, its design may not be as sturdy as a fixed beam.
