On A Simple Procedure to Determine the Maximum Beam Deflection by Abiala I.O. and Bolaji B.O. Volume 22 (November, 2012), pp 513 – 518
Sale price: $5.00
A simplified procedure for determining the maximum beam deflection is studied.  The problem was formulated using the differential equation of the deflection of a beam on elastic foundation subjected to any arbitrary transverse loads. The solution for a simply supported beam of variable moments of inertial subjected to end moments was obtained by matrix multiplication which was used to determine the segment where maximum deflection occur. The effects of foundation and flexural rigidity were also presented.
