15 Moment 02/09/2020 16 Moment In addition to the tendency to move a body in the direction of its application, a force can also tend to rotate a body about an axis. The axis may be any line which neither intersects nor is parallel to the line of action of the force. M=Fd 02/09/2020 17 Moment about a Point Point of application of a force and line of action of a force are as in Figure:

F line of action of a force point of application The magnitude of the moment or tendency of the force to rotate the body about the axis perpendicular to the plane of the body is proportional both to the magnitude of the force and to the moment arm d, which is the perpendicular distance from the axis to the line of action of the force. 02/09/2020 18 Moment: Vector Definition In some two-dimensional and many of the three-dimensional problems to follow, it is convenient to use a vector approach for moment calculations.

M r F O r Position v ector that runs from the moment reference point A to any po int the line of action of F MA r F d Direction : The right - hand rule is used to identify the direction. O

Thus the moment of F about O-O may be identified as a vector pointing in the direction of thumb, with the fingers curled in the direction of the tendency to rotate. 02/09/2020 19 Clockwise and Counterclockwise moments: If tendency of the force is to rotate its moment arm in a counter clockwise manner it is called counterclockwise moment (CCW). We will assume CCW moment as a positive moment (+). If tendency of the force is to rotate its moment arm in a clockwise manner it is called clockwise moment (CW). We will assume CW moment as a negative moment (-). 02/09/2020 20 Zero moments - If line of action of the force intersects the axis of rotation, there is no moment of the force about this axis of rotation - If line of action of the force is parallel to the axis of rotation, there is no moment of the force about this axis of rotation

02/09/2020 21 Varignons Theorem The moment of a force about any point is equal to the sum of the moments of the components of the force about the same point. 02/09/2020 22 Problems For the figure shown below, find moment of 400 N force about point A using: 1.Scalar approach 2.vector approach. y 3m O

26 Alternative Solution (Using Varignons Theorem): Assuming that the counterclockwise moment is positive; MB = - Fx.(0.16m) - Fy.(0.2m) where Fx= 400 N and Fy= 693 N MB = -400N(0.16m)-693N(0.2m) = -202.6 N.m We can say MB = -203 N.m Since we assumed that the counterclockwise moment is positive and we obtained a negative moment value, this implies that the direction of MB is actually clockwise. So; the result is exactly the same as before, i.e. 02/09/2020 27 Couple and Couple Moment 02/09/2020

28 Couple Moment The moment produced by two equal, opposite, and non-collinear forces is called a couple. Mo=F(a+d)-Fa Mo=Fd Its direction is counterclockwise 02/09/2020 29 Vector We may also express the moment of a couple by using vector algebra. M rA F rB ( F ) rA F rB F (rA rB ) F r F

M r F where rA and rB are position vectors which run from point O to arbitrary points A and B on the lines of action of F and F, respectively. 02/09/2020 30 Equivalent Couples The Figure shows four different configurations of the same couple M. 02/09/2020 31 Force-Couple Systems The replacement of a force by a force and a couple is illustrated in the Figure, where the given force F acting at point A is replaced by an equal force F at some point B and the counterclockwise couple M=Fd. The transfer is seen in the middle figure, where the equal and opposite forces F and F are added at point B

without introducing any net external effects on the body. We now see that the original force at A and the equal and opposite one at B constitute the couple M=Fd, which is counterclockwise for the sample chosen, as shown in the right-hand part of the figure. Thus, we have replaced the original force at A by the same force acting at a different point B and a couple, without altering the external effects of the original force on 02/09/2020 the body. The combination of the force and couple in the right-hand part of the Figure is referred to as a forcecouple system. 32 Counterclockwise and Clockwise couples 02/09/2020 33 Problem-1 Calculate the combined moment of the two 2-kN forces, shown in the Figure, about point O and A using : (i) Scalar approach

Two persons simultaneously approach the door and exert forces of equal magnitude as shown. If the resulting moment about point O is 25 N.m, determine the force magnitude F. 02/09/2020 37

The two components F cos15 and -F cos15 will form a couple. The moment of this couple would be M O Fcos15o 1.6 25 N.m F 16.18 N Note : The components F sin 15 and -F sin 15 will not cause any moment as their lines of action are passing through O. 02/09/2020 38 Problem-3 A square plate of 200 mm 200 mm is subjected to two forces, each of magnitude 50 N, as shown in the figure: 1.
