1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A. determine the deflection at point A in the X and Y direction. B. determine the maximum normal stress in the beam C. determine the maximum shear stress in the beam 2. Relevant equations δ=(PL/EA) (possibly?) δt=αΔτL d2v/dx2 = M/EI dM/dx = V δab=δx*cosθ + δy*sinθ σ=-My/I y- the distance from the neutral axis τxy= VQ/IT 3. The attempt at a solution I tried to split this problem into separate deflections. First, the deflection due to the normal force: δy= -(Pb)/(Ewd) Next, the deflection due to the moment on the bar with width W: Vx= (12Pab2)/(Edw3) Finally, I related the deflection on the section with width t to the deflection on the bar with a width W: My boundary conditions are as follows dv/dx = -1/(dv/dxw) since they are perpendicular V(0) = δy Using these boundary conditions I found that when X=a.... this is gonna get messy. Vy= 12/Edt3 [(-pa3/3)+(E2d2w2t2/144pb)-(pbt3/12w)] My intuition tells me this is incorrect since there is an E2 term in there. I obtained the E2 term when I related the slopes of the t and w bars. For V in the x direction... Vx= (12pab2/2Edw2) For parts B and C, I simply plugged in P for Vmax, and P*a for Mmax into the equations: τxy= VQ/IT σ=-My/I 2. Relevant equations Are these the correct equations for deflection in the x and y? Do I need to account for the rotation of the beam, or is that already accounted for in these equations? Thanks. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
