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 displacement of a point in the real beam is numerically equal to the moment at the corresponding point in the conjugate beam. The slope at a point in the real beam is numerically equal to the shear at the corresponding point in the conjugate beam.

Conjugate beam method – Wikipedia

The conjugate-beam method was developed by H. Retrieved from ” https: To show this similarity, these equations are shown below.

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 bending moment at that point divided by EI. Below is a shear, moment, and deflection diagram.


Corresponding real and conjugate supports are shown below. Essentially, it requires the same amount of computation as the moment-area theorems to determine a beam’s slope or deflection; however, this conjigate relies only on the principles of statics, so its application will be more familiar.

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.

Views Read Edit View history. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Nptep Saddle River, NJ: The basis for the method comes from the similarity of Eq. From the above comparisons, we can state two theorems related to the conjugate beam: 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.


Consequently, from Theorems 1 and 2, the conjugate beam must be supported by a pin or a roller, since this support has zero moment but has a shear or end reaction. Here the conjugate beam has a free end, since at this end there is zero shear and zero moment. This page was merhod edited on 25 Octoberat When drawing the conjugate emthod it is important that the shear and moment developed at the supports of the conjugate beam account for the corresponding slope and displacement of the real beam at its supports, a consequence of Nptwl 1 and 2.

When the real beam is fixed supported, both the slope and displacement are zero. Retrieved 20 November
