Homework Help: Beam Deflection

  1. Nov 29, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    In my assignment im writing about beamdeflection, but theres some things i really can find out how to do.
    I need to explain area moment, moment of inertia and the center of gravity, i need to explain this with the help of integration.

    Under her ive inertet the whole assigment, sorry for bad english, its google translate:
    Problem Formulation
    Explain the use of beams for building construction in a historical perspective as well as for the two
    requirements normally will dimension the following (strength and deflection).
    Derive the expression for the maximum stress in a cross-section, and for two different bar case
    expression to determine the maximum deflection - explains including area moments
    center of gravity and inter timo elements using integral calculus and use the theory of a self-selected
    profile of adequate complexity.

    can someone please help make notation, or give me some reading stuff i can use

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
