The vertical reaction RB at B to maintain vertical equilibrium is equal to 1.23 x 54 = 66.42 kips. The downward deflection at B due to this load is

In addition to the upward and downward deflections at B, there is a third component to the vertical deflection due to the moment at B = 263.24 x 0.638 = 167.95 kip-ft.

For purposes of deflection calculations, moment MB at B may be replaced by an equivalent point load equal to ā€”-Lā€”

Renewable Energy 101

Renewable energy is energy that is generated from sunlight, rain, tides, geothermal heat and wind. These sources are naturally and constantly replenished, which is why they are deemed as renewable. The usage of renewable energy sources is very important when considering the sustainability of the existing energy usage of the world. While there is currently an abundance of non-renewable energy sources, such as nuclear fuels, these energy sources are depleting. In addition to being a non-renewable supply, the non-renewable energy sources release emissions into the air, which has an adverse effect on the environment.
