Hey This may seem like a homework question, but its actually extending my knowledge... I attended a lab, and it was for beam bending, here is the setup... Beam of length was clamped at either end, think this is called "Indeterminately Loaded Beam"? Two loads are then applied to it, one at 25% of the way, and one at 75% of the way. The delfection was measured, and using a quarter bridge strain guage the strain was took. Here is my problem, i want to know how to model this with theory, but i cant seem to figure out how to do it? This is just to expand my understanding of loading, rather than any homework, but if it comes up in the future I want to know how to do my calculations. Thanks for any help or light you can shed on this for me.
