Deflections of Beams Differential Equations of the Deflection Curve
y The beams described in the problems for Section 9.2 have constant flexural
rigidity EI. Problem 9.2-1 The deflection curve for a simple beam AB (see figure) is B A given by the following equation:
360LEI x 10L2x2 + 3x4)
L Describe the load acting on the beam. Probs. 9.2-1 and 9.2-2 Solution 9.2-1 Simple beam q0 x
360LEI 10L2x2 + 3x4) Take four consecutive derivatives and obtain:
–– q0 x
LEI From Eq. (9-12c): q EI –– q0x
L ; The load is a downward triangular load of maximum
intensity q0. 707 ...
