Problem 6: Simple supported-guided-in-X beam

The equations for all 3 thermal load cases are shown below, the colors represent temperature field (white is high and black is low). The equations give the axial deformation u of the beam, the deflection w of the beam, and the axial stresses in the beam.


Boundary Conditions:
u (x=0) = 0
w (x=0) = 0
M (x=0) = 0
(x=L) = 0
(x=L) = 0
M (x=L) = MT

The figure of the deformed beam illustrates the deflection resulting from load case C. Colors represent the axial stress field (green is zero, red is positive and blue is negative). Note that the boundary effects as shown in the figure is not included in the equations!
