Stiffness factor modification in beam

  1. Jan 26, 2017 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    In this question , the author use only the left section of the beam for analysis ... How can we just consider a part of the beam for analysis ? We must consider the whole beam , right ? And find the KCD also .

    Second question , why there is no need to use carry over factor ( assuming the author's working of considering the left part of the beam is correct )

    2. Relevant equations


    3. The attempt at a solution
