Obtain (i) the equation of the deflection curve and (ii) the maximum deflection. Answer:
. Problem 4
A steel beam ABC is simply supported at A and held by a high-strength steel wire at B. A load P
= 240 lb acts at the free end C. The wire has axial rigidity EA = 300 ×103 lb, and the beam has
flexural rigidity EI = 30 ×106 lb-in2. What is the deflection at point C due to the load P?
First, get the displacement at the point C with assuming that the point B does not move. To do
so, just replace the wire with a pin support.
