## Superposition Method

There are 12 cases listed in the method of superposition for beam deflection.

• Cantilever beam with...
1. concentrated load at the free end.
2. concentrated load anywhere on the beam.
3. uniform load over the entire span.
4. triangular load with zero at the free end
5. moment load at the free end.
• Simply supported beam with...
1. concentrated load at the midspan.
2. concentrated load anywhere on the beam span.
3. uniform load over the entire span.
4. triangular load which is zero at one end and full at the other end.
5. triangular load with zero at both ends and full at the midspan.
6. moment load at the right support.
7. moment load at the left support.

Shear and Moment Diagrams
Consider a simple beam shown of length L that carries a uniform load of w (N/m) throughout its length and is held in equilibrium by reactions R1 and R2. Assume that the beam is cut at point C a distance of x from he left support and the portion of the beam to the right of C be removed. The portion removed must then be replaced by vertical shearing force V together with a couple M to hold the left portion of the bar in equilibrium under the action of R1 and wx.
