1.       Using Equation 3.11, derive the results of the equivalent nodal forces and moments for a beam element with uniformly distributed lateral load. 2.       The cantilever beam is supported by a spring at the end as shown in the figure. Using FEM, determine the deflection and rotation at the node 2.

Using ANSYS Workbench, solve the frame problem in Problem 3.5, and determine the reaction forces and

Using ANSYS Workbench, solve the frame problem in Problem 3.5, and determine the reaction forces and moments at the two fixed ends. Problem 3.5 The plane frame is subjected to the uniformly distributed load and is fixed at the ends as shown in the figure. Assume E = 30 × 106 psi, A = 100 […]

The physical construction of two representative beam connections is shown in the figure below, where

The physical construction of two representative beam connections is shown in the figure below, where an I-beam is connected to a floor slab through a slotted bolt hole in (a), and is connected to a column through an angle bracket in (b). What simplified support conditions would you use to represent the physical construction in […]
