Unformatted text preview: 1. A concentrated force of 25 units at the tip, as shown. 2. A unit elongation of element d. For each load case draw the bending moment diagram, and determine the vertical translation at the tip of the cantilever, i.e. at node 4. For the first load case draw the deformed shape of the structure under the applied force. Scale the elongation of element d, so as to eliminate the tip deflection under the combined effect of the concentrated force at the tip and the prestressing. For this combined load case determine the support reactions and check global equilibrium. 8 4 6 1 2 3 4 a b c d 25...
