The moment diagram included the impact of self-weight (DL), superimposed dead load (SDL), live load (LL), top prestressing tendons (TP) and bottom prestressing tendons (BTP).
Analysis results showed that moment diagrams including creep effect which lies somewhat between the construction stage moment diagram and completed stage moment diagram.
The bending moment diagram of the stiffening girder depends on the vertical forces applied to the cable anchorage points.
Symmetrical vertical forces added to the anchorage points of cables will provide a bending moment diagram which is similar to the one shown in Fig.
The values of bending moment diagram caused by the uniformly distributed load on simple beam can by calculated at the beginning and at the end of middle section (section with span [b.
In order to reduce the metal consumption a frame is conventionally divided into several sections according to bending moment diagrams so that in the more compressed zone section the belt of great area was located, and in the stretched or less intense zone the lesser belt was installed (Fig.
The load cases and the corresponding bending moment diagrams are presented in Fig.
They will learn how to solve simple beam, column, truss, and frame problems; how to estimate dead, live, and other loads and where to find load information; and how to construct free-body, shear, and moment diagrams.
