  • STRENGTH OF MATERIALS–THEORY OF SLOPE AND DEFLECTION

    STRENGTH OF MATERIALS–THEORY OF SLOPE AND DEFLECTION

      STRENGTH OF MATERIALS–SLOPE AND DEFLECTION THEORY SLOPE:  It is angular shift at any point of the beam between no load condition and loaded beam. Its value is different at different points on the length of the beam. It is represented by dy/dx or θ. Its units are radians. There is a maximum limit for […]
