## 7.22 and 7.23 Determine the deflection at point B of the beam shown in Figs. P7.20 and P7.21 by the virtual work method. Use the graphical procedure (Table 7.6) to evaluate the virtual work integrals. FIG. P7.20, P7.22, P7.57

To determine

Find the deflection at point B of the beam using virtual work method.

### Explanation of Solution

Given information:

The beam is given in the Figure.

The EI is constant.

Apply the sign conventions for calculating reactions, forces and moments using the three equations of equilibrium as shown below.

• For summation of forces along x-direction is equal to zero (Fx=0), consider the forces acting towards right side as positive (+) and the forces acting towards left side as negative ().
• For summation of forces along y-direction is equal to zero (Fy=0), consider the upward force as positive (+) and the downward force as negative ().
• For summation of moment about a point is equal to zero (Matapoint=0), consider the clockwise moment as negative and the counter clockwise moment as positive.

Calculation:

Consider the real system.

Sketch the real system of the beam as shown in Figure 1.

Refer Figure 1 to find the reaction and moment at A.

Summation of forces along y-direction is equal to 0.

+Fy=0Ayw×L=0Ay=wL

Summation of moments about A is equal to 0.

MA=0MAw(L)(L2)=0MA=wL22

Sketch the moment diagram of the real system M as shown in Figure 2.

Consider the virtual system.

Remove all the real loads and apply unit load where the point to find the deflection.

Let the bending moment due to virtual load be Mv.

Sketch the virtual system of the beam with unit load at point B as shown in Figure 3.

Refer Figure 1 to find the reaction and moment at A.

Summation of forces along y-direction is equal to 0.

+Fy=0Ay1=0Ay=1

Summation of moments about A is equal to 0.

MA=0MA1(L)=0MA=L

Sketch the moment diagram of the virtual system Mv as shown in Figure 4
