What Is Beam And Its Types : Based On The Support

1. SIMPLY SUPPORTED BEAM ​
A simply supported beam is defined as the beam where both ends Are Fixed with the Supports one end is Fixed with the Hinge or Roller Load and Other end is pinned connection

Important Note
The bending moment in a simply supported beam is zero at the support and maximum at the center of the beam.
The shear force in a simply supported beam is zero at the support and maximum at the center of the beam.
The deflection of a simply supported beam is parabolic in shape and is maximum at the center of the beam.

Building construction process

Simply supported beams are the most common type of beam because they are easy to analyse and design. Their construction is also relatively economical.

Let’s take a look at the important definitions that we will use in this topic​

Supports – The supports are called pin supports and roller supports. Pinned supports allow the beam to rotate freely, while roller supports only allow the beam to rotate horizontally
BM – The bending moment is due to the load applied on the beam. The maximum bending moment occurs at the point where the load is applied
SF – Shear force is due to the difference in load applied on the beam. The maximum shear force occurs at the point where the load is applied or where the beam changes direction.
Deflection – Deflection is the amount of bending that occurs in the beam. Maximum deflection occurs at the point where the bending moment is maximum.

2. FIXED BEAM ​
A fixed beam is a beam supported by two supports that prevent it from rotating. The supports are called fixed supports, and they are usually made of concrete or masonry.
