3-D Elastic Beam Elements (BEAM4) Input Listing: vm36.dat Test Case
A symmetric cross-section beam of bending stiffness EIy, and height h, totally fixed at C, simply supported at A,
is subjected to a concentrated load P at point B. Verify that a load P which is slightly smaller than the theoretical
load limit PL will cause elastic deformation and that a load which is slightly larger than PL will cause plastic deformation. Also determine the maximum deflection δ, the reaction force at the left end RA, and the reaction
moment at the right end Mc just prior to the development of a plastic hinge. Figure 36.1 Limit Moment Problem Sketch Material Properties
