A simply supported beam of span L carries a point load Pat the mid span. The downward deflection under the load will be
A simply supported beam carries a concentrated load P at the mid span and experiences a maximum deflection Av Subsequently, the breadth and depth of beam is doubled. The corresponding deflection under the load will become
A simply supported beam carries a total load W which is uniformly distributed on the entire span. The center of beam is propped so that it is brought to the level of end supports. The prop reaction would be
After equating central deflection for both the cases, we have
A point load placed at the mid span of a simply supported beam has been replaced by a uniformly distributed load of same total value. The central deflection in the later case will be
For central point load P,
For udl of same total value,
A cantilevel beam of length L is subjected to a concentrated load Pat a distance of L/3 from the free end. What is the deflection at free end of the beam?
Which amongst the following methods is/are most commonly used to determine beam deflection?
1. Doubleintegration method
2. Method of singularity functions
3. Elastic energy methods
4. Momentarea methods
The differential equation of the bent beam is given by
The significance of this equation is, except
A support is said to be nonyielding if
A simply supported beam has been subjected to unsymmetrical loading. The deflection would be maximum at a section where
Slope is always zero at the point of maximum deflection.
Which of the following statements pertaining to slope of loaded beam is WRONG? The maximum slope
The maximum slope for a simply supported beam carrying a total load Pwhich is distributed over the entire span is PL^{2}/24 EI
