BEAMS: DEFORMATION BY SINGULARITY FUNCTIONS (9.5 – 9.6) Singularity Functions Slide No. 22 ENES 220 ©Assakkaf Notes on Distributed Loads – 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 open-ended loadings.
