[ 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 ....
