Example 18 A beam is supported at its ends by supports which are 12 metres apart. Since the load is concentrated at its centre, there is a deflection of 3 cm at the centre and the deflected beam is in the shape of a parabola. How far from the centre is the deflection 1 cm? Beam is always facing upwards with the axis vertical Since, the axis is positive y-axis, its equation is x2 = 4ay First we find coordinates of point B Given Width of beam = 12 m Hence, AB = 12 m So, BC = ๐ด๐ต/2 = 12/2 = 6 m Also, there is a deflection of 3 cm from centre So, OC = BD = 3 cm OC = BD = 3 cm = 3/100 m Hence point B is B(6, ๐/๐๐๐) Now, Since point B(6, 3/100) lies on the parabola Putting x = 6, y = 3/100 in equation x2 = 4ay (6)2 = 4a (3/100) 36 = (3๐ )/25 3/25 a = 36 a = (36 ร 25)/3 a = 12 ร 25 a = 300 m Now, we need to find how far from the centre is the deflection 1 cm Hence RQ = 1 cm, We need to find OP QP = 3 cm โ 1 cm = 2cm = 2/100 m Let OP = x So, coordinates of point Q is Q (x, ๐/๐๐๐) Since point Q lies on parabola it will satisfy the equation of parabola Equation of parabola is x2 = 4ay Putting x = x & y = 2/100 m & a = 300 m x2 = 4 (300) (2/100) x2 = 1200 ร 2/100 x2 = 24 x = โ24 = โ(6 ร4) = 2โ6 ๐ Thus, the required distance is 2โ๐ ๐
