Deflection in Varying Members

by Alyssa Ordmandy


Submitted : Spring 2009

This project was based upon the deflection in a bridge and if a different design would have less of a deflection then that in a bridge that had a parabolic design. The parabolic figure in the middle of the span would have a deflection of - (wL6 )/4.4 x 107 EI. The maximum deflection of a beam with two fixed ends, where it was a rectangular shape is the change in y-max which is
