 Section IV.2 Statically Determinate Stiffened Box Beams   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-11)
Hence, in statically determinate box beams, we do not need to use the procedure involving the general shear flow equation as described in previous section.
If we were to modify the box beam by including an additional stiffener, then the problem becomes statically indeterminate as there would be 8 unknown loads to solve for as opposed to 6 in the previous case.
The discussion of statically indeterminate box beams will be given in the next section.

 Statically indeterminate - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In statics, a structure is statically indeterminate when the static equilibrium equations are not sufficient for determining the internal forces and reactions on that structure.
Considerations in the material properties and compatibility in deformations are taken to solve statically indeterminate systems or structures.
Thus, in general, the static indeterminacy of structural systems depends on the internal structure as well as on the external supports.

 Lecture 31   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-11)
Beam types are determined by method of support, not by method of loading.
The first two types are statically determinate, meaning that the reactions, shears and moments can be found by the laws of statics alone.
Early structures were designed to be statically determinate because simple analytical methods for the accurate structural analysis of indeterminate structures were not developed until the first part of this century.

Objectives: The student will be able to determine the reactions and internal forces in a statically determinate structures such as beams, frames, trusses and arches due to the application of static forces and assess the effect of the placement of the loads on the structure using influence lines.
The laws of mechanics that are typically taught on single rigid bodies in your statics course apply to the larger and more complex systems of bodies; but the applications of these laws becomes more challenging for real world structures.
Thus students who want to fully master the applications of statics to large and complex systems need to become actively involved in the learning process and be challenged by applying the material to progressively more complex and interesting structures.

For this structure we would like to determine the axial stress in cable CE, the deformation of member CE, the strain in member CE, and finally to determine the movement of point D due to the applied loads.
As the first step in our solution, we apply static equilibrium conditions to determine the value of the external support reactions (the process we studied in Topic 1 - Statics).
Now that we have the values of the external support forces, we determine the value of the force in the internal member in which we would like to find the stress.

 Otto Mohr - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In 1874, Mohr formalised the, until then only intuitive, idea of a statically determinate structure.
In 1882, he famously developed the graphical method for analysing stress known as Mohr's circle and used it to propose an early theory of strength based on shear stress.
He also developed the Williot-Mohr diagram for truss displacements and the Maxwell-Mohr method for analysing statically indeterminate structures.
