The continuous beam in Figure P-871 is supported at its left end by a spring whose constant is 300 lb/in. For the beam, E = 1.5 × 106 psi and I = 115.2 in.4. Compute the load on the spring and its deflection.
The beam in Figure PB-006 is supported at the left by a spring that deflects 1 inch for each 300 lb. For the beam E = 1.5 × 106 psi and I = 144 in4. Compute the deflection of the spring.
