Beam deflection question
1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
Find the maximum deflection in the beam.
Beam breadth = 195mm
UDL on beam: 40 Bar
2. Relevant equations
I have useed the method of superposition to try and solve it. Is this the best way?
It has been suggested that finding the displacement by integration would give me a more accurate answer but I'm unsure how to apply it in this case.
I am using Mechanics of Materials by R.C. Hibbler for reference.
3. The attempt at a solution
I = (bd3) / 12
I = (0.195 x 0.053) / 12 = 2.03125x10-6
Formula: y= (-5 x w L4) / (384 E I )
y = (-5 x 4x106 x 0.1054) / (384 x 205x109 x 2.03125x10-6)
y = 0.015mm
Thanks for any help.
