Transcribed Image Text: A 8 m beam is fixed at one end, and hinged at the other end. The beam has
constant (EI) and the load on the beam is illustrated as shown in Figure 1. Using
the finite difference method, determine deflections in the beam. Take h=Ax =L/4.
9, = 40 kN/m
Find the magnitude and the location of maximum deflection of the beam in Figure
1, and then compare the results with the exact solution.
If the section of the beam changed with the length, as displayed in the Figure 2,
find new deflection values in this case?
