R A R C Q Problem 5.34 Given: Beam ABC is simply supported ans subjected to a linearly varying distributed load as shown. Determine the deflection of the center of the beam. Solution: Apply dummy load Q at the center and compute reaction forces R A and R C z wL/4 + Q/2 V M 2wz/L R A R C = wL 4 Q 2 + = At any z coordinate between 0 < z < L/2, the distributed load at the left end is: w z L 2 The total load over length z is w 2z L z 2 w z 2 L = The centriod of the load is z/3 from the left end and thus: For 0 < z < L/2 V 4 Q 2 + w z 2 L = M 4 Q 2 + z w z 2 L z 3 = w Lz 4 z 3 3L
