Unformatted text preview: singularity functions to
describe bending moment along the beam
length, special considerations must be
taken when representing distributed loads,
such as those shown in Figure 12.
– The distributed load cannot be represented
by a single function of x for all values of x. 11 LECTURE 16. BEAMS: DEFORMATION BY SINGULARITY FUNCTIONS (9.5 – 9.6) Singularity Functions Slide No. 22

– The distributed loading should be an openended to the right (Figure 11) of the beam
when we apply the singularity function.
– A distributed loading which does not
extend to the right end of the beam or
which is discontinuous should be replaced
as shown in Figures by an equivalent
combination of openended loadings. LECTURE 16. BEAMS: DEFORMATION BY SINGULARITY FUNCTIONS (9.5 – 9.6) Singularity Functions Slide No. 23

– Examples of openendedtoright
distributed loads, which are ready for
singularity function use are shown in
