Beam and types of beam - support reaction, Mechanical Engineering


Sol.: A beam can be defined as a structural element which has one dimension (length) considerable larger

As compared to the other two direction, which is breadth and depth and is supported at few points. It is generally loaded in vertical direction. Because of applied loads reactions develop at supports. The system of forces which constitutes applied loads and reaction keeps the beam in equilibrium.

Types of Beam

There are majorly three types of beam:

1. Simply supported beam

2. Over hang beam

3. Cantilever beam
