730 CHAPTER 9 Deflections of Beams Method of Superposition The problems for Section 9.5 are to be solved by the method of superposition. All beams have constant flexural rigidity EI . Problem 9.5-1 A cantilever beam AB carries three equally spaced concentrated loads, as shown in the figure. Obtain formulas for the angle of rotation u B and deflection d B at the free end of the beam.
