Written by  TheStructuralEngineer.info

Calculate the equation of the elastic curve .Determine the pinned beam’s maximum deflection. EI constant.

 

 Solution

From the previous exercise (Calculation example-Calculate member diagrams) published (17 January 2017), we work for the section 0<x<L/2.

The Shear force is S(x)= P/2

The Moment is M(x)= P/2 x

 The Slope and the Elastic Curve are:

new ex 22

Capture 66

Due to symmetry, boundary conditions are:

Capture 98

We calculate the slope:
