deflection formula 2 cont spans

deflection formula 2 cont spans

deflection formula 2 cont spans

Does anyone know where I can find the formula for the deflection along the x axis on a beam that is continuous over 3 supports but is loaded only along one span. I can find the max deflection but I want to graph the deflection

RE: deflection formula 2 cont spans

Thanks for the response but that doesn't help not because of the language but it isn't for two spans with only one span loaded

RE: deflection formula 2 cont spans

the best option for graphing the deflected shape would be the double-integration method, as it will give you the deflection as a function of x "D = F(x)"; and with that function you can plot the deflected shape

RE: deflection formula 2 cont spans

Thanks for the responses.
The Italian chart was helpful for another purpose.
Kam93 you are correct and I did that but I was having a problem with the second span. I was not getting the correct deflections.
I solved that by going from a to b for the first span and from c to b for the second span.
Its been a long time since I have used calculus!!!
