Question

For the beam shown below, determine the vertical displacement of the beam at the free end (adistance of x = 15ft), using superposition. Clearly identify your final answer indicating themagnitude and direction of the deflection. Assume the beam has a constant Young's Modulus of E = 10,000ksi and a constant Moment of Inertia of I = 64in¹
