(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. Derive an expression for the vertical deflection v of the beam of figure Q1[/URL]

b) if E=200GPa and I= 750*10^-6 m^4, find the position and magnitude of the maximum upwards vertical deflection.

2. EId²v/dz²=equation of the beam

dv/dz=0 at max deflection

3. EId²v/dz²=20/6z³+100[z-3]²-20/6[z-8]³+Cz where C is calculated to be 525.83

i was wondering wether this is correct, and if R at the clamped side of the beam is 20kN

thanks
