Essentially, it requires the same amount of computation as the moment-area theorems to determine a beam’s slope or deflection; however, this method relies only on the principles of statics, so its application will be more familiar.
Upper Saddle River, NJ: The basis for the method comes from the similarity of Eq. Below is a shear, moment, and deflection diagram. Retrieved 20 November When conjubate real beam is fixed supported, both the slope and displacement are zero. From the above comparisons, we can state two theorems related to the conjugate beam: The conjugate-beam method was developed by H.
Conjugate beam method
To make use of this comparison we will now consider a beam having the same length as the real beam, but referred here as the “conjugate beam. For example, as shown below, a pin or roller support at the end of the real beam provides zero displacement, but a non zero slope.

The following procedure provides a method that may be used to determine the displacement and deflection at a point on the elastic curve of a beam using the conjugate-beam method.
Retrieved from ” https: Conjugate beam is defined as the imaginary beam with the same dimensions length as that of the original beam but load at any point on the conjugate beam is equal to the beamm moment at that point divided by EI. This page was last edited on 25 Octoberat Here the conjugate beam has a free end, since at this end there is zero shear and zero moment.
The slope at a point in the real beam is numerically equal to the shear at the corresponding point in the conjugate beam. Views Read Edit View history. The displacement of a point in the real beam is numerically equal to the moment at the corresponding point in the conjugate beam. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Consequently, from Theorems 1 and 2, neam conjugate beam must be supported by a pin or a roller, since this support has zero moment but has a shear or end reaction.
Conugate drawing the conjugate beam it is important that the shear and moment beaj at the supports of the conjugate beam account for the corresponding slope and displacement of the real beam at its supports, a consequence of Theorems 1 and 2.
Note that, as a rule, neglecting axial forces, statically determinate real beams have statically determinate conjugate beams; and statically indeterminate real beams have unstable conjugate beams. Corresponding real and conjugate supports are shown below.
