Step 1

(2.1)

For equilibrium conditions, determine the directions of reactions at points A (RA) and B (RB) and the direction of moment reaction at point A (MA). Draw the loading diagram for the cantilever propped beam considering a section X-X at a distance x from point A of the beam. Also, determine the respective load at the X-X section using similar triangle property.

Step 2

Consider downward loading to be negative and upward loading to be positive. Write the fourth order differential equation for the X-X section, which states that fourth integral of the load will be equal to deflection (Y). help_outlineImage Transcriptionclosed'Y (1) EI -x-x = NA 4 L on both sides to obtain the shear force (Fr_y ) equation Integrate the above equation d'Y d N.A EI ddx L d'Y (EIN) dr (2) +C 2L X-X fullscreen
