and Equilibrium

Learning Objectives

After reading this chapter, you will know:

1. Equivalent Force System, Newtons Law of Motion

2. Equilibrium and Free Body Diagrams, Type of Equilibrium

3. Static Friction, Virtual Work, Trusses and Frames, Statics Related Problems

Introduction

Statics deals with system of forces that keeps a body in equilibrium. In other words the resultant of

force systems on the body are zero.

Force

A force is completely defined only when the following three characters are specified.

Magnitude

Point of Application

Line of action/Direction

Scalar and Vector

A quantity is said to be scalar if it is completely defined by its magnitude alone. e.g. length, energy,

work etc. A quantity is said to be vector if it is completely defined only when its magnitude and

direction is specified.

E.g.: Force, Acceleration.

Coplanar Force System: If all the forces in the system lie in a single plane, it is called coplanar force

system.

Concurrent Force System: If line of action of all the forces in a system passes through a single point it

is called concurrent force system.

Collinear Force System: In a system, all the forces parallel to each other, if line of action of all forces

lie along a single line then it is called a collinear force system.

Force System

Coplanar like parallel force is straight

Coplanar concurrent force

Coplanar non- concurrent force

Non- coplanar parallel force

Non- coplanar concurrent force

Non- coplanar non-concurrent force

Example

Weight of stationary train on rail off the track

Forces on a rod resting against wall

Forces on a ladder resting against a wall when a person

stands on a rung which is not at its center of gravity

The weight of benches in class room

A tripod carrying camera

Forces acting on moving bus

First Law: Everybody continues in its state of rest or of uniform motion in a straight line unless it is

compelled to change that state by force acting on it.

Second Law: The rate of change of momentum of a body is directly proportional to the applied force

& it takes place in the direction in which the force acts.

dv

F (m )

dt

Third Law: For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.

Principle of Transmissibility of Forces: The state of rest or motion of rigid body is unaltered if a force

action on a body is replaced by another force of the same magnitude and direction but acting

anywhere on the body along the line of action of applied forces.

P

Parallelogram Law of Forces: If two forces acting simultaneously on a body at a point are

represented in magnitude and direction by the two adjacent sides of a parallelogram their resultant

is represented in magnitude and direction by the diagonal of the parallelogram which passes

through the point of intersection of the two sides representing the forces.

Equilibrium: Any system of forces which keeps the body at rest is said to be equilibrium, or when the

condition of the body is unaffected even though a number of forces acted upon it, is said to in

equilibrium.

Laws of Equilibrium

Force Law of Equilibrium: For any system of forces keeping a body in equilibrium, the algebraic

sum of forces, in any direction is zero, ie. F = 0

Moment Law of Equilibrium: For any system of forces keeping a body in equilibrium, the

algebraic sum of the moments of all the forces about any point in their plane is zero.

i.e., M = 0

F d = 0

This law is applicable only to coplanar, non-concurrent force systems.

Triangle Law of Forces

If two forces acting simultaneously on a body are represented by the sides of triangle taken in order,

their resultant is represented by the closing side of the triangle taken in the opposite order.

Free Body Diagram: A free body diagram is a pictorial representation used to analyze the forces

acting on a free body. Once we decide which body or combination of bodies to analyze, we then treat

this body or combination as a single body isolated from all our surrounding bodies.

A free body diagram shows all contact and non-contact forces acting on the bodies.

In a free body diagram all the contacts/supports are replaced by reaction forces which will exert on

the structure. A mechanical system comprises of different types of contacts/supports.

Types of Contacts/Supports

Following types of mechanical contacts can be found in various structures,

Flexible Cable, Belt, Chain or Rope

Force exerted by the cable is always a tension away from the body in the direction of the cables.

Smooth Surfaces

N

Contact force is compressive and is normal to the surfaces.

Rough Surfaces

Rough surfaces are capable of supporting a tangential component F (frictional force as well as a

normal component N of the resultant R.

Roller Support

N

Roller, rocker or ball support transmits a compressive force normal to supporting surface.

Freely Sliding Guide

Collar or slider support force normal to guide only. There is no tangential force as surfaces are

considered to be smooth.

Varignons Theorem: The algebraic sum of the moments of a system of coplanar forces about a

momentum center in their plane is equal to the moment of their resultant forces about the same

moment center.

Effect of couple is unchanged if

Couple is rotated through any angle.

Couple is shifted to any position.

The couple is replaced by another pair of forces whose rotated effect is the same.

Couple is free vector.

The algebraic sum of the components of the forces along each of the three mutually

perpendicular direction is zero.

The algebraic sum of the components of the moments acting on the body about each of the

three mutually perpendicular axis is zero.

When a body is in equilibrium, the resultant of all forces acting on it is zero. Thus, the resultant

force R and the resultant couple M are both zero and we have the equilibrium equations,

R = F = 0 & M = M = 0

For collinear force system

Fx = 0, Fy = 0 & Fz = 0

For non-collinear force system

MA = 0 , MB = 0 & MC = 0

These requirements are both necessary and sufficient conditions for equilibrium.

Two forces can be in equilibrium only if they are equal in magnitude, opposite in direction, and

collinear in action. If a system is in equilibrium under the action of three forces, those three

forces must be concurrent.

Wrench: When the direction of resultant couple M and resultant force F are parallel, then it is

called wrench.

When direction of resultant couple & direction of resultant force is same then it is called

Positive wrench and when the direction opposite to each other it is called negative wrench.

Example of wrench is screw driver

Types of Equilibrium

There are three types of equilibrium as defined below,

Stable Equilibrium: A body is in stable equilibrium if it returns to its equilibrium position after it has

been displaced slightly.

Unstable Equilibrium: A body is in unstable equilibrium if it does not return to its equilibrium

position and does not remain in the displaced position after it has been displaced slightly.

Neutral Equilibrium: A body is in neutral equilibrium if it stays in the displaced position after if has

been displaced slightly.

Stable Equilibrium

Unstable Equilibrium

Neutral Equilibrium

Friction

Friction is the force resisting the relative motion at solid surfaces, fluid layers and material elements

sliding against each other.

Types of Friction

1. Dry Friction: Friction between the contact surface.

2. Fluid Friction: Friction between the layers of fluid element.

3. Internal Friction: When cyclic load applied on the solid then, friction between the elements.

When applied force is, F

And static friction coefficient,

Fmax = N

F<Fmax

F = Friction Force

F = Fmax= N

If F >Fmax

F = k N= Friction Force

k = Kinetic Friction Co-efficient

Example 5

Two halves of a round homogeneous cylinder is held together by a thread wrapped round

the cylinder with two equal weights, P attached to its ends, as shown in figure. The

complete cylinder weighs, W Newton. The plane of contact of both of its halves is vertical.

Determine the minimum value of P for which both halves of the cylinder will be in

equilibrium on a horizontal plane.

As the question is to find the minimum value of force F on rope for which the two halves

just remain in contact, we see that the limiting case is that the two halves are just about

to touch. In this case, the two halves rotate about point of contact C. So, the point of

contact as acts as revolute joint about which the two semi-circular cylinders rotate and

hence has two normal reactions Nx & Ny as shown in FBD.

In case of a half turn rope (rope which goes around the cylinder just half a turn around

the top half once), to split the two halves as we have to cut the rope once. On cutting

the rope, the rope tension force P is exposed once on the top tip each half, which is why

it is marked on top.

The left two force, are gravity of each half which is 2 acting on Center of Gravity of each

semi cylindrical half. To calculate the CG location, we know that

CG = A

Now, employing polar coordinates and taking a infinitesimal element as shown in figure,

we get as follows.

Modification/Extension for Multiple Turns: When the number of turns on the cylinder

increases, by physical intuition, clearly, the minimum value of P required to just hold the

two halves together must be lesser, right? Lets check if the solution gives this analytically.

Assume that the rope turns n full turns around the cylinder. In this case, when we try to

draw FBD of two halves separately, we have to cut the ropes n+1 times on top edge of

cylinder which means a force of (n+1)P acts on top edge. In addition, we have to cut rope

n times at bottom edge ie at point C, which means force acting at bottom point is nP. With

these modifications, we get the new FBD as follows. Now,
