Hi, I have a problem regarding my assignment using MATLAB. This is my first time using this MATLAB. Can anybody help me with this problem ?
A simply supported beam of length is loaded by a distributed load and a tensile axial force as shown in the figure. The deflection of the beam, is determined from the solution of the following ODE:
(d^2 y)/(dx^2 )=1/EI [1+(dy/dx)^2 ]^(3/2) [1/6 q_0 (Lx-x^3/L)+Ty]
with the boundary conditions y(0)=0 and y(L)=0 .
EI=1.2×(10)^7 Nm^2 is the flexural rigidity, q_0= 30x(10)^3 N/m, and T=20x(10)^3 N .
