I, CE332 - Deflection of Beams by Virtual Work - Examples Example 1: Calculate the vertical deflection at B (i.e. OBv) for the following structure. EI is constant. 5k RAY 2 klft. RAx-Ef ! E B C D M A A 4 ft. 4 ft. 10 ft. REV 2 klft. d ! ! !

Break the structure at the hinge. Notice that the left portion is stable on its own, while the right portion must be supported by the left.
