SECTION 9.5 Method of Superposition 739 Problem 9.5-15 An overhanging beam ABC with flexural rigidity EI ± 15 k-in. 2 is supported by a guided support at A and by a spring of stiffness k at point B (see figure). Span AB has length L ± 30 in. and carries a uniform load. The over-hang BC has length b ± 15 in. For what stiffness k of the spring will the uniform load produce no deflection at the free end C ?

The beam has a slight initial curvature so that end A is 18 mm above the elevation of the supports and end D is 12 mm above. What moments M 1 and M 2 , acting at points A and D , respectively, will move points A and D downward to the level of the
