Pinned Beam Subjected to Bending

Verification Example

Beam pinned at the both ends is loaded with the concentrated force at the middle. Neglecting its self-weight and shear stiffness, determine beam's maximum deflection, normal force and moment at the mid-span assuming the second and the third order theory.
