Introduction
•Up to now, we have been primarily calculating normal and
shear stresses.
•In this lecture, we will learn how to formulate the deflection
curve(also known as the elastic curve) of a beam to due
transverse

–Bending moment equation (2constants of integration)
–Shear-force equation (3constants of integration)
•Chosen method depends on which is more convenient.
Slide 5
Boundary Conditions
•Sometimes a single equation is sufficient for the entire length of the
beam, sometimes it must be divided into sections.

Statically Indeterminate Beams
•When there are more reactions than can be solved using
statics, the beam is indeterminate.
