EGM 3520 Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering 9.1 Deformation of a Beam Under Transverse Loading 5 Overhanging beam Reactions at A and C Bending moment diagram Curvature is zero at points where the bending moment is zero, i.e., at each end and at E . Beam is concave upwards where the bending moment is positive and concave downwards where it is negative. Maximum curvature occurs where the moment magnitude is a maximum. An equation for the beam shape or elastic curve is required to determine maximum deflection and slope. EI x M ) ( 1

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.

Dana University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• 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.
