Hi friends, I am trying to solve a problem of curve beam fixed at lower point (pls refer image) and a force is being applied on the top most point which is acting vertically downwards. I am not able to find the deflection on top most point through analytical method, though I have found the same through FEM package. Could anyone guide me how can I solve it using equations. My trials: I divided the beam in two parts (One horizontal and another inclined) and tried to find the cumulative defection on top most point. My results are varying from FEM solution.
