Solution to Problem 618 | Double Integration Method

Problem 618
A simply supported beam carries a couple M applied as shown in Fig. P-618. Determine the equation of the elastic curve and the deflection at the point of application of the couple. Then letting a = L and a = 0, compare your solution of the elastic curve with cases 11 and 12 in the Summary of Beam Loadings.
