Calculate the vertical deflection of the beam (magnitude and direction) at the midpoint of the central span (point A)

Use virtual work method:

**Virtual Structure**

From Equilibrium:

Shear force diagram

**Virtual** Bending Moment diagram

** Real** Bending Moment diagram

Based on virtual work we get:

Therefore, the vertical deflection of the beam at point A is:
