I have been working on a simulator for bending of beams and came now to a tricky doubt: What should be the difference between a linear and non linear solution in this case (graphic at bottom)? The ...
So in my engineering statics course we have been doing a great deal of work with trusses and machines, and a part of the physics behind it has really been confusing me. Just as a note, I also have ...
After hours of research all what I can find is this: http://www.public.iastate.edu/~fanous/ce332/virtualwork/homepage.html can somebody explain this method in a better way. If the moment diagram ...
Essentially, there is a beam of length L and negligible mass sticking out of a wall with a mass Mg hanging at the end of it. We are given an equation for elastic energy (which I don't think needs to ...
