DREXEL UNIVERSITY Department of Mechanical Engineering & Mechanics Applied Engineering Analytical & Numerical Methods II MEM 592 - Winter 2013 HOMEWORK #4: Due Thursday, February 14 @ 6 30 pm 1. [100 points] Consider a horizontal beam which is supported at its ends. Let ݕሺݔሻ denote the vertical displacement of the beam ݔ length units away from the left side. If ݕԢሺݔሻ is small and a uniformly transverse load ݓ is applied on the beam then it can be shown that ݕሺݔሻ is modeled by the differential equation: ݕԢԢሺݔሻ ൌ ாூ ݕ ൅ ௪௫ሺ௫ି௅ሻ ଶாூ , 0 ൑ ݔ ൑ ܮ (1) where ܧ is the modulus of elasticity, ܫ is the moment of inertia and ܮ is the length of the beam. i) Formulate the structure of the Shooting Method for this BVP using the Newton-Raphson approach to update ݒ (present all the equations you will need to implement this method). ii) Use the RK4 subroutine that you developed in previous homeworks and the Shooting Method structure in

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
