Problem # 27
Deflection of Cantilever Beam : Bracket Function.
and the x-coordinate as shown in the figure to find the deflection of the beam at its left end.
Consider as given :
Length of beam : L
Distance : a
Moment of inertia of cross-section :
Young's modulus : E
Force : P
Determine the moment equation M(x) using bracket functions. Include a sketch of the relevant Free Body Diagrams you are using.
Integrate to find the deflection curve.
What are the conditions from which to determine the integration constants ?
Determine the equation for the deflection at the left end of the beam.
