APPLICATION

s.s or cantilever beam and loading config

OUTPUT

Tabulated shear force & bending moment distributions

THEORY

statically determinate beam theory

GUIDANCE

LHS of band 1 is at x=0
Cantilever beams may be simulated by setting up lines 1 & 2 as Rl & Rr respectively with unit displacement xr-xl between.
Moments may be applied as PL with some appropriate small displacement between.
In this instance, some small nominal non-zero pu must be prescribed.
