Unformatted text preview: Direct Disptecemetv: Method (3) Three-Span Indeterminate Beam problem statement Using the direct displacement method, determine the final member end forces in the three-span indeterminate beam below. The modulus of elasticity (E) and the moment of inertia (1)are constant for the entire beam. Note: The colors of the loads and moments are used to help indicate the contribution of each force to the deflection or rotation being calculated. The moment diagrams show the moments induced by a load using the same color as the load.
