Chapter 07 - Restrained Beams


Restrained Beams
In addition to the equations of static equilibrium, relations from the geometry of elastic curve are essential to the study of indeterminate beams. Such relations can be obtained from the study of deflection and rotation of beam. This section will focus on two types of indeterminate beams; the propped beams and the fully restrained beams.
