Deflection and Forces in Cantilever Beam propped with a Spring - solved Example.

With this example you will learn how to find the deflection in an indeterminate propped cantilever beam using the equations of compatibility.

Problem: 
Before the Load P was applied to the beam shown, the beam was straight and spring was unstretched. Find the deflection under the load P in terms of EI, L, and spring constant k.


Solution: 


If you have any doubt, please ask in the comment box.

Solved Example of Pinned Truss - the average normal and shear stresses in members and pins respectively and Pin Diamater

Hi, A simple truss has pin-connected members. The members carry only axial forces, but the pins have to bear the shear stresses. Given exa...
