Page 2 UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA, BERKELEY Department of Civil Engineering CE 120 - Instructor: J. P. Moehle - Spring 201 5 IL for M B : By virtual displacement method, 1.Make a cut at B.2.Impose a unit relative rotation without any relative displacements. That is, a kink will form at B.3.Draw the displaced shape without moving the supports.4.Find the ordinates from geometryδ=θ1*10= θ2*20….(i)θ1 + θ2=1 …….(ii)solving (i) and (ii), θ1 = 2/3 and θ2=1/3so, ordinate at B= 2/3*10=20/3.(b) The shear and moment at A, B, and just to the left of C.
