224 Finite Element Analysis and Design 10. Let a uniform cantilevered beam of length L be supported at the loaded end so that this end cannot rotate, as shown in the figure. For the given moment of inertia I , Young‟s modulus E , and applied tip load P , calculate the deflection curve v ( x ) using one beam element.
