Other Thoughts on Exams
• Bring a straight-edge
• First draft on a separate page?
• More linear, top-to-bottom
Will try to target specific concepts for Exam #3
Shear &amp; Moment Diagrams
• Practice Problem Solutions posted (x2)
• Won’t put complicated one on exam
 Non-linear
 Unique supports
• Will probably see simple version on Exam #3
 Concentrated and constant, distributed loads
 Simple supports
• Might see some “tricky” features
 Overhang beyond supports
Fluid Statics
• Question over last Wednesday’s material?
• Did you try practice problems yet?
{189, 199, 210}
• Didn’t have time for Buoyancy
Fluid Statics - Buoyancy
• Cut a hole in the water
• Replace it with lighter object
• Surrounding fluid pushes up on object
Fbuoyancy = rsurrounding _ fluid &times; g &times;Vsubmerged

Flexible Cables
Flexible Cables
Follow text for justification / explanation
• No resistance to bending (F always along cable)
• Assumptions
 Horizontal component constant
 “Second order” terms drop out
 θ small, make use of trig. Identities
• Find general relationship
 Differential equation
 Solve for y = f(x)
 Need know boundary conditions

Case One - Parabolic Cable
• Note
 Neglect weight of cable
 w is constant
 Useful for examining Suspension Bridges
• Start by examine lowest point
Meriam, JL and Kraige, LG. Statics 7th Ed. Wiley 2012. p. 293
Case One - Parabolic Cable
wx 2
• Integrate =&gt; y =
2T0
• ... Lots of math and assumptions...
• Equations for finding Tmax and cable length sA
• Look at special case of hA = hB
Meriam, JL and Kraige, LG. Statics 7th Ed. Wiley 2012. p. 293-295
Case Two - Catenary Cable
• Weight of cable only load
• Integration becomes much messier
(hyperbolic functions)
Meriam, JL and Kraige, LG. Statics 7th Ed. Wiley 2012. p. 295-296
Case Two - Catenary Cable
• Difficult to solve analytically
• Text suggest computational solution
Catenary Cables won’t be on the Exam
Meriam, JL and Kraige, LG. Statics 7th Ed. Wiley 2012. p. 296-297
Problem-Solving Approach
• Unfortunately, a lot of equation-hunting
 Not as intuitive as other beams or fluids
 You won’t be required to memorize them
• Identify the type of system
• Remember where you “start”
(where you set the origin of your coordinate system)
