Question: consider a cantilever beam of length l width b and...

Question details

Consider a cantilever beam of length L, width b, and thickness h. It has Youngs modulus E and density p. The transverse (vertical) deflection is described by y(x) (up is positive), wherex-0 at the free end and x -L at the clamp. cross- x=0 section E,p, L I. (8 points) Assume the beam is only subjected to the uniform load of its own weight (i.e. due to gravity, g). Determine the maximum tip deflection y (r) at the left end and the equation of the elastic curve. 2. (8 points) Now ignore gravity and apply a downward shear force Fo at x-0. Again, determine the deflection y (r) and the equation of the elastic curve. 3. (4 points) Express the deflections (in inches) for Problems 1-2 for the below values: L= 12 E= 69 GPa h-1/16 p- 2700 kg/m3 g81 m/s b=I,, Fo-10 N
