ES 13 Homework (Beam Deflections

)

Deadline: November 23, 2016 (Class Hours)

Problem 1: Double Integration Method
1. Using DIM with the given axis
shown, determine the following:
a. Deflection at midspan of the
beam
b. Maximum deflection of the beam
Problem 2: Area-Moment Method
2. Using AMM with reference at A,
determine the following:
a. Deflection at midspan of the
beam
b. Maximum deflection of the beam

Figure 1 (Problems 1 and 2)

EI is 50MN-m2 and is constant through the entire length of the beam.
Problem 3: Maximum Deflection
3. Determine the maximum value of P
if the allowable deflection in the
beam is 50mm. EI is 10 MN-m2 and
is constant through the entire length
of the beam.

Problem 4: Statically Indeterminate Systems
4. Determine the reactions at the supports
using:
a. DIM with given axis shown
b. AMM with reference at A
EI is 50MN-m2 and is constant through the
entire length of the beam.
