Conjugate beam method
The displacement of a point in the real beam is numerically equal to the moment at the corresponding point in the conjugate beam. To show this similarity, these equations are shown below.
Notel 20 November Below is a shear, moment, and deflection diagram. When drawing the conjugate beam 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 Theorems 1 and 2.
The conjugate-beam method was developed by H. Consequently, from Theorems 1 and 2, the conjugate beam must be supported mthod 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. 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.
Note that, beamm a rule, neglecting axial forces, statically determinate real beams have statically determinate conjugate beams; and statically indeterminate real beams have unstable conjugate beams.
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.
Corresponding real and conjugate supports are shown below. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Retrieved from ” https: 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.
The basis for the method comes conjguate the similarity of Eq. 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. The slope at a point in the real beam is numerically equal to the shear at the corresponding conjugat in the conjugate beam.
When the real beam is fixed supported, both the slope and displacement are zero.
