## TYPES OF SUPPORTS AND LOADINGS

### THEORY

#### Specific Objectives

By the end of the sub- module unit, the trainee should be able to:

- identify the types of supports
- identify the different loading systems
- determine the basic laws of static

### Content

- Types of supports

-rollers

-hinged

-fixed

- Loading systems

-concentrated -uniformly distributed -varying -simply supported -continuous -cantilevers

- Laws of Static Equilibrium

-sum of all moments is equal to zero -sum of horizontal forces is equal to zero -sum of vertical forces is equal to zero

### PRACTICE

21.1.4P0 Specific Objectives By the end of the module sub-unit, the trainee should be able to: a) identify the types of loads on a system b) determine the forces in a simply supported system
