(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

If the distributed force is removed from the beam in the picture attached and not considered, calculate the deflection at point D.

2. Relevant equations

Double integration for deflection [V]

3. The attempt at a solution

Moment = Ra*x-P(x-3*L) =

Slope = 1/EI*((7p/4)*(x^2/2)-(Px^2/2)-(3PL)+c1)

Deflection = 1/EI*((7p/4)*(x^3/6)-(Px^3/6)-(3PL)+(c1*x)+c2)

Boundary Conditions to calculate c1 and c2

x=0=4L V=0

I am not sure of another boundary condition. I thought maybe

x=2L Slope=0 but I do not think this is right.
