# Problem 605

Determine the maximum deflection δ in a simply supported beam of length L carrying a concentrated load P at mid span.

Solution 605

At x = 0, y = 0, therefore, C2 = 0 At x = L, y = 0

Thus,

Maximum deflection will occur at x = ½ L (mid s an!

The ne"ati#e si"n indicates that the deflection is below the un deformed neutral axis\$ herefore, answer

Problem 606
Determine the maximum deflection δ in a simply supported beam of length L carrying a uniformly distributed load of intensity !o applied o"er its entire length.

Solution 606
#rom the figure sho!n

At x = 0, y = 0, therefore C2 = 0 At x = L, y = 0

Therefore,

Maximum deflection will occur at x = ½ L (mid s an!
