Determine the slopes at free end - cantilever beam:

A cantilever beam of length l carries a point load W at a distance l  /4 from free end.

Determine the slopes at free end and under load and the maximum deflection and deflection under the load.

Solution

M =- w [x - l/4 ]------------- (1)

EI (d 2 y /dx2)   =- w [x - l /4]                ------------ (2)

EI dy/ dx          =- (w/2)[x- (l/4)]2+  + C1          ------------------ (3)

 EI y     =- (w/6)[x- (l/4)]3+  + C1  + C2                ------- (4)

Boundary conditions are :

 At B, x = l, dy/ dx  = 0            ---------- (5)

At B, x = l, y = 0                         --------- (6)

From Eqs. (3) and (5),

0 =-     w/2 [l -l/4]2           + C1

C1  =+ 9 wl 2 / 32                          ------------. (7)

From Eqs. (4), (6) and (7)

0 =- (w/6)[l-(l/4 ) 3+ 9 wl 3/32+C2

C2  = (wl 3 / (6 × 64)) [- 108 + 27]

=-81wl 3/ (6 × 64)        = - 27 w l 3/128        ---------- (8)

The Eqs. (3) and (4) will be :

∴          EI (dy/ dx)  =- (w/2) [x-(l/4)]2 + 9 wl 2/32             ------------ (9)

EIy = (w/6)[l-(l/4 ) 3+ 9 wl 3/32-27 wl3/128           ---------- (10)

Slope at A, (x = 0),

θA = +  9 wl 2 / 32EI          ---------------(11)

Slope at C, (x = l/4) ?,

 Θc = + 27 wl 2 / 128EL         

Deflection at A, (x = 0),

y A  =-27 wl3/ 128 EI       -------------- (12)

Deflection under load at C, (x = l/2) ,

=(9 wl 2 /32 ).(l/4) -27 wl 3  /128  =  - 18 wl 3/128------------ (13)

∴ yC  =- 18 wl 3 / 128 EI
