A bimetallic beam consists of two materials with different coefficients of thermal expansion, α1 and α2, and is
initially at a reference temperature of 0°F. The beam is simply supported and a uniform temperature is applied
to both surfaces. The beam is expected to undergo a large lateral deflection. Determine the midspan deflection
after heating and verify the temperature T at the material interface. Figure 174.1 Bime...
