Strength of Materials: Methods of Integration

Methods of Integration

The same process that was used to determine the beams deflection would be used to solve a statically indeterminate beam. First, the moment diagram and its corresponding equations have to be derived. After that has been found, the moment equation would be integrated twice. From that you would have to use a set of boundary conditions to solve for the C constants, as well as the unknown forces. Refer to the example below.
