Maximum Deflection of a Simply Supported Beam:
Given:
Maximum slope at A (θ) = 0.0075 radians
Distance of the center of gravity of bending moment diagram to support A = 1.33 meters
To calculate the maximum deflection of a simply supported beam, we can use the following equation:
δ = (θ * L^2) / (8 * D)
where:
δ = maximum deflection
θ = maximum slope at A
L = distance between supports
D = flexural rigidity of the beam
In this case, the beam is simply supported, which means it is supported at both ends and has a fixed support at one end (A) and a roller support at the other end.
Now, let's solve the problem step by step.
Step 1: Calculate the distance between supports (L)
The distance between support A and the center of gravity of the bending moment diagram is given as 1.33 meters.
So, the distance between supports (L) = 2 * 1.33 meters = 2.66 meters
Step 2: Calculate the flexural rigidity of the beam (D)
The flexural rigidity of the beam depends on the material properties and the cross-sectional shape of the beam. It is represented by the product of the modulus of elasticity (E) and the moment of inertia (I) of the beam.
Since the cross-sectional shape and material properties are not given in the question, we cannot calculate the exact value of D. However, we can assume a value for D based on typical values for common materials.
Let's assume a value of D = 1,000,000 Nm^2 for the beam.
Step 3: Calculate the maximum deflection (δ)
Using the equation mentioned earlier:
δ = (θ * L^2) / (8 * D)
Substituting the given values:
δ = (0.0075 * (2.66)^2) / (8 * 1,000,000)
= 0.020006 Nm
Converting the deflection from Newton-meters to millimeters:
δ = 0.020006 * 1000
= 20.006 mm
So, the maximum deflection of the simply supported beam is approximately 20.006 mm.
Therefore, none of the given options (A, B, C, D) matches the correct answer.
