Figure 5 shows a beam AC of length 2L and fl exural rigidity EI that is built in at A and simply
supported at C. The beam is subjected to a concentrated force F at the mid-point B.
Use discontinuity functions to find:
(i) The deflection (displacement) of the beam as a function of x;
(ii) The location and magnitude of the maximum bending moment;
(iii) The reaction at C.
