Draw a deflected shape of a continuous beam(two spans with a cantilever portion) under a uniform load and show the locations of main reinforcement
Step 11 of 2
Recommended textbook solutions
A simply supported beam is 16 meters long and has a load at the center. The deflection of the beam at its center is 3 centimeters. Assume that the shape of the deflected beam is parabolic. (a) Write an equation of the parabola. (Assume that the origin is at the center of the deflected beam.) (b) How far from the center of the beam is the deflection equal to 1 centimeter?
