Differential Equations – Section 5.2 – Homework: 1, 3, 5, 9, 13, 17 First we will solve the boundary-value problem 0 ) ( , 0 ) 0 ( , 0 = = = + L y y y y λ , using eigenvalues and eigenfunctions. is called a parameter. Case 1: 0 = . The general form of the solution is 2 1 c x c y + = . What happens? Case 2: 0 < . The general form of the solution is x c x c y - + - = sinh cosh 2 1 . What happens? Case 3: 0 . The general form of the solution is x c x c y sin cos 2 1 + = . What happens?

We will now consider structures that are constructed using beams and find the deflection of the beams. The deflection curve approximates the shape of the beam. In the following formula E = Young’s modulus of elasticity of the material of the beam and I = the moment of inertia of a cross-section of the beam. The product EI is called the flexural rigidity of the beam. The deflection y(x) satisfies the first-order differential equation ) ( 4 4 x w dx y d EI = . Boundary conditions depend on how the ends of the beam are supported. Ends of the Beam Boundary Conditions Embedded 0 , 0 = = y y Free 0 , 0 = = y y Simply Supported

Unformatted text preview: , = = y y #2 #6 Consider a long slender vertical column of uniform cross-section and length L. Let y(x) denote the deflection of the column when a constant vertical compressive force, or load, P is applied to its top. Then 2 2 = + Py dx y d EI . If we let EI P / = we have ) ( , ) ( , = = = + L y y y y . As we saw earlier, = L x n c x y n sin ) ( 2 , corresponding to the eigenvalues ,... 3 , 2 , 1 , / / 2 2 2 = = = n L n EI P n n . Physically this means that the column will buckle or deflect only when the compressive force is one of the values 2 2 2 / L EI n P n = . These different forces are called critical loads . The deflection curve corresponding to the smallest critical load 2 2 1 / L EI P = , called the Euler load , is ( 29 L x c x y / sin ) ( 2 1 = and is known as the first buckling mode. #23...
