§11.1 FOURTH ORDER METHOD DESCRIPTION

The fourth-order method to find beam deflections gets its name from the order of the ODE to be

integrated: E Izz v I V (x) = p(x) is a fourth order ODE. The procedure can be broken down into the

following steps.

1. Express the applied load p(x) as function of x, using positive-upward convention. This step

may involve changing load signs as necessary, as in the example below.

2–3. Integrate p(x) twice to get Vy (x) and Mz (x)

4. Pause. Determine integration constants from static BCs, and replace in Mz (x). (If the constants

are too complicated when expressed in terms of the data, they might be kept in symbolic form

until later.)

5–8. From here on, same as the second order method.

An example of this technique follows.

This example has been worked out in the previous lecture using the second order method. It is

defined in Figure 11.1, which reproduces the figure of the previous Chapter for convenience.

Notice the minus sign to pass from the user’s convention: w(x) > 0 if directed downward, to the

generic load convention: p(x) > 0 if directed upward. Integrating p(x) twice yields

Apply now the static BCs at the free end A: Vy A = Vy (0) = C1 = 0 and Mz A = Mz (0) = C2 = 0.

From here on the steps are the same as in the second order method worked out in Lecture 10. The

deflection curve is

The maximum deflection occurs at the cantilever tip A, and is given by

wB L 4

v A = v(0) = − ⇓ (11.5)

30E Izz

The negative sign indicates that the beam deflects downward if w B > 0.

§11.2. Superposition

All equations of the beam theory we are using are linear. This makes possible to treat complicated

load cases by superposition of the solutions of simpler ones. Simple beam configurations and load

cases may be compiled in textbooks and handbooks; for example Appendix D of Beer-Johnston-

DeWolf. The following example illustrates the procedure.

Consider the problem shown in Figure 11.2(a). The cantilever beam is subject to a tip point force

as well as a triangular distributed load. This combination can be decomposed into the two load

cases shown in Figure 11.2(b). Both of these have been separately solved previously as Examples

1 and 2 of Lecture 10 (the latter also as the example in the previous section). The deflection curves

for these cases will be distinguished as v P (x) and v w (x), respectively.

We had obtained

P wB

v P (x) = − (L − x)2 (2L + x), v w (x) = − (x 5 − 5L 4 x + 4L 5 ) (11.6)

The deflection under the combined loading is obtained by adding the foregoing solutions:

Superposition can be also used for any other quantity of interest, for example transverse shear

forces, bending moments and deflection curve slopes. An application to statically indeterminate

beam analysis is given next.

§11.2.2. Example 3: A Statically Indeterminate Beam

The problem is defined in Figure 11.3(a). The beam is simply supported at A and clamped at B. If

the supports are removed 3 reactions are activated: R A , R B and

M B , as pictured

in Figure 11.3(b).

But thereare only two nontrivial static equilibrium equations: Fy = 0 and Many point = 0

because Fx = 0 is trivially satisfied. Consequently the beam is statically indeterminate because

the reactions cannot be determined by statics alone. One additional kinematic equation is required

to complete the analysis.

We select reaction R A as redundant force to be carried along as a fictitious applied load. Removing

the support at A and including R A makes the beam statically determinate. See Figure 11.3(b). This

beam may be viewed as being loaded by a combination of two load cases: (1) the actual triangular

load w(x), and (2) a point load R A at A. But this is exactly the problem solved in Example 2, if we

replace P by −R A . The deflection curve of this beam is

RA wB

v(x) = (L − x)2 (2L + x) − (x 5 − 5L 4 x + 4L 5 ). (11.9)

Lecture 11: BEAM DEFLECTIONS: 4TH ORDER METHOD AND ADDITIONAL TOPICS

Now the tip deflection must be zero because there is a simple support at A. Setting v A = v(0) = 0

provides the value of R A :

RA L3 wB L 4 wB L

v A = v(0) = − =0 ⇒ RA = (11.10)

3E Izz 30E Izz 10

This reaction value can be substituted to complete the solution. For example, the bending moment

is

wB x 3 wB L x wB x 3 wB x

Mz (x) = R A x − = − = (3L 2 − 5x 2 ) (11.11)

6L 10 6L 30L

√

The moment is zero at A (x = 0), becomes positive for 0 < x < L 3/5 ≈ .7746 L, crosses zero

at x = 0.7746 L and reaches Mz B = −w B L 2 /15 at the fixed end. The deflection is

wB L wB

v(x) = (L − x)2 (2L + x) − (x 5 − 5L 4 x + 4L 5 ), (11.12)

wB

v(x) = − x (L 2 − x 2 )2 (11.13)

120 E Izz L

If the applied load is discontinuous, i.e., not a smooth function of x, it is necessary to divide the

beam into segments separated by the discontinuity points. The ODEs are integrated over each

segment. These solutions are “patched” by continuity conditions expressing that the slope v (x)

and the deflection v(x) are continuous between segments. This matching results in extra relations

between integration constants, which permits elimination of all integration constants except those

that can be determined by the standard BCs. The procedure is illustrated with the next example.

The problem is defined in Figure 11.4(a). The calculation of the deflection curve will be done by the

second order method. Divide the beam into two segments: AC, which extends over 0 ≤ x ≤ 12 L,

and CB, which extends over 12 L ≤ x ≤ L. For brevity, these are identified as segments 1 and 2,

respectively, in the equations below.

The expression of the bending moment over each segment is easily obtained from statics. From

symmetry, the support reactions are obviously R A = R B = 12 P as shown in Figure 11.4(b). By

inspection one obtains that the bending moment Mz (x), diagrammed in Figure 11.4(c), is

Mz1 (x) = P x over segment 1 (AC),

Mz (x) = 2 (11.14)

M (x) = P(L − x) over segment 2 (CB).

It is convenient to stop here and get rid of Ĉ1 to avoid proliferation of integration constants. To

do that, note that the midspan slope vC must be the same from both expressions: vC = v1 ( 12 L) =

v2 ( 12 L). Else the beam would have a “kink” at C. This is called a continuity condition. Equating

P L 2 /16 + C1 = (3/16)P L 2 + Ĉ1 yields Ĉ1 = C1 − P L 2 /8, which is replaced in the second

expression above:

P over segment 2 (CB).

(11.17)

To get rid of Ĉ2 we say that the midspan deflection vC must be the same from both expressions:

vC = v1 ( 12 L) = v2 ( 12 L). This continuity condition gives Ĉ2 = C2 + P L 3 /48, which replaced

11–7

Lecture 11: BEAM DEFLECTIONS: 4TH ORDER METHOD AND ADDITIONAL TOPICS

yields

E Izz v1 (x) = P x + C1 x + C2 over segment 1 (AC),

E Izz v(x) = 12

E Izz v2 (x) = x (3L−x)

2

P − P L2 x + P L3 + C x + C over segment 2 (CB).

12 8 48 1 2

(11.18)

We have now only two integration constants. To determine C1 and C2 use the kinematic BCs at A

and B. v A = v1 (0) = C2 = 0 and v B = v2 (L) = 0 ⇒ C1 = −P L 2 /16. Substitution gives, after

some simplifications,

E Izz v1 (x) = P x (4x 2 − 3L 2 ) over segment 1 (AC),

E Izz v(x) = 48

E Izz v2 (x) = − P (4x 3 − 12L x 2 + 9L 2 x − L 3 ) over segment 2 (CB).

48

(11.19)

The midspan deflection, obtainable from either segment, is

P L3

vC = v1 ( 12 L) = v2 ( 12 L) = − (11.20)

As can be seen the procedure is elaborate and error prone, even for this very simple problem. It can

be streamlined by using Discontinuity Functions (DFs), which are covered in Lecture 12.
