### Calculation Example – Angular acceleration, angular velocity.

The column A moves to the right with variable speed V(t)=2*Vo*t+c. Calculate the angular velocity and the angular acceleration of the beam B. The beam is pinned at one end. (c is constant).

### Calculation Example – Evaluation of Structural Property Matrices.

Calculate the stiffness matrix for the frame structure. It is assumed that the members do not distort axially. The frame has three joint degrees of freedom. At end A, B is rigidly fixed to the ground.

### Calculation Example – Undamped free Vibration (Part B).

Calculate the modal frequencies for the shear frame at the previous exercise Undamped free Vibration (Part A). The story weight of the first floor is W1=60 KN end at the second floor W2=50 KN. The cross section of the columns is circular with radius r1=0.5m at the first floor and r2=0.2m at the second floor. The columns are considered to have no mass. (Modulus of elasticity E=2.1*107 KN/m2, Story height h1=5m, h2=3m.)

### Calculation Example – Cantilever Beam, Temperature change

The beam is fixed at end B and free at end A. It is loaded at end A with the concentrated force 2F. At the same time there is a temperature change ΔT. Calculate the length change Δx. (Modulus of elasticity E, Cross section area AS , Temperature coefficient a.)
