Assignment No. – 10
10.1
Determine the equation of the elastic curve for the beam shown in Fig. 10.1 due to
an imposed small vertical displacement,
∆
, at the end. The beam has length, L, and
constant flexural rigidity, EI. Hint: start with fourth order differential equation.
10.2
Find reaction at support B (Fig. 10.2) using superposition method.
10.3
The cantilever beam, AB, shown in Fig. 10.3 has a bracket, BCD, attached to its
free end. A force, P, acts at the end of the bracket. Find the ratio a/L, so that i) the
vertical deflection, ii) angle of rotation of beam at point, B, will be zero. Use the
method of superposition.
10.4
A 0.75 m long cantilever of contact flexural rigidity, EI = 30 kN-m
