### Effect of Compressive Axial Load on Deflection of the Beam Lab Report

Aim  To determine the effect of compressive axial load due to transverse load on deflection of the beam  Objection 1. Experimentally determine the deflection in beam with vertical end 2. Experimentally determine the deflection in beam with oblique end 3. Theoretically determine the deflection in beam with vertical end 4. Theoretically determine the deflection in beam with oblique end Introduction Beam A structural member who is designed to resist the bending stresses produce in it when an external load is applied on it. Simply supported beam Types of beam which has support available at its both ends is called simply support beam Overhanging beam Types of beam which has support available at its both ends but has some of its area extended over one of its ends is called overhanging beam Cantilever beam Type of beam which has support available only at one of its ends and other ends is free is called cantilever beam I beam Type of beam which has cross sec

### Bending of Different Shapes of Timber Beam Lab Report

Aim Aim of this lab experiment is to examine the bending of different shapes of timber supporting structure Objective Experimentally determine the deflection in timber beam Experimentally determine the deflection in timber plank Calculate the second moment of inertia for timber beam Calculate the second moment of inertia for timber plank Study the effect of shape on deflection and second moment of inertia Study the deflection of three flitch beams Compare the result of three flitch beams Theory Beam Beam is the simplest, most common and most important supporting structure member of anybody like buildings, bridges and vehicles. Beams provide support to the structures by resisting against the forces which are applied on that structure. Forces applied on beam try to bend the beam and produce deflection in its shape. Deflection produce in beam depends on its shape, material and size. There are many different types of beam based on their end supports and shap
