Calculate the vertical deflection of the beam (magnitude and direction) at the midpoint of the central span (point A)
Use virtual work method:
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:
Based on Figure 1, we get: where:...
The rod of the picture is loaded with the force 2...
