Problem 10.1 : Given : A uniform beam of flexural stiffness and length 300 in has one end fixed and the other simply supported. 9 10 lb-in EI = 2 Required : Determine the system stiffness matrix considering three beam segments and the nodal coordinates indicated. Solution : Start by assigning “extra” global DOF to the beam – these will help in the assigning of element stiffnesses to the global DOF and will be eliminated once the stiffness matrix has been assembled. Also, introduce the element numbering: Next, we obtain the element-level stiffness matrices from Equation 10.21, which corresponds to Figure 10.1 in the text.

Now, we assemble the local stiffness matrices into the global stiffness matrix.

Problem 10.2/4/6 : Given : A uniform beam of flexural stiffness and length 300 in has one end fixed and the other simply supported. The beam carries a uniform weight per unit length 9 10 lb-in EI = 2 3.86 lb/in. q = Required : (a) Determine the system mass matrix corresponding to the lumped mass formulation. (b) Use static condensation to eliminate the massless DOF and determine the transformation matrix and the reduced mass and stiffness matrices.
