ENES 220 ©Assakkaf Introduction
– We see that even with a cantilever beam
subjected to two simple loads, the
expressions for the shear and bending
moment become complex and more
– Singularity functions can help reduce this
labor by making V or M represented by a
single analytical function for the entire
length of the beam. 4 LECTURE 16. BEAMS: DEFORMATION BY SINGULARITY FUNCTIONS (9.5 – 9.6) Singularity Functions Slide No. 8
ENES 220 ©Assakkaf Basis for Singularity Functions
– Singularity functions are closely related to
he unit step function used to analyze the
transient response of electrical circuits.
– They will be used herein for writing one
bending moment equation (expression)
that applies in all intervals along the beam,
thus eliminating the need for matching
equations, and reduce the work involved. LECTURE 16. BEAMS: DEFORMAT...
