For each problem, provide a detailed explanation of all the steps involved. Problem 1 Problem 16.2, on page 496 from Megson’s book. Problem 2 Problem 16.4, on page 497 from Megson’s book. [ Hint : First calculate the moment distribution about the x and y axes, as a function of z . Then calculate the distribution of ! zz determined by M x ( z ) and M y ( z ) at every point in the cross-section. Finally plot the z distribution of

[ Hint: The link exerts an unknown force on the beam along the x direction. This force will induce a moment on the beam. Assume that you know the force (e.g. call it T) and solve for the deflections u and v due to M x and M y . Finally, impose that u=0 at the free end (boundary condition exerted by the link and solve for T). Then you can easily calculate v max ....

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
