Cantilever Bend to Form a Circle

Verification Example

Determine the bending moment which acting at the free end of the cantilever will bend the member to a circle shape. Neglecting beam's self weight, assuming large deformation theory and loading the cantilever with the moment, determine its maximum deflections.
