I dont get how to solve this problem in the simplest form... I would appreciate your help thanks! I have had some attempts at the question but the question is supposed to be non-calculator-use, so the method should rather be simple, and I couldn't come up with any sort of neat way to solve the problem 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data the question is to get the deflection and slope at the point 'D', for the EI you can just state them in the calculation as EI for the reactions R.b=160KN, R.e=20KN upwards were found after the calculation of momentum equilibrium equation. 2. Relevant equations no specific equation for the deflection, you can use whatever the method you want to use 3. The attempt at a solution I've had attempt at the question using the singularity method and moment-area method, but failed to get the answer.
