2fff 2Two Member Frame - Fixed/Free Free End Horizontal Point Load Formula

\(\large{ R_A  = 0  }\)

\(\large{ H_A = P  }\)

\(\large{ M_{max}  \left(at \;point\; A\right) = P\;h  }\)

\(\large{ \Delta_{Cx}  = \frac{P\;h^3}{3\; \lambda \; I}  }\)

\(\large{ \Delta_{Cy}  = \frac{P\;h^2\;L}{2\; \lambda \; I}   }\)

Where:

\(\large{ \Delta }\) = deflection or deformation

\(\large{ h }\) = height of frame

\(\large{ H }\) =  horizontal reaction load at bearing point

\(\large{ M }\) = maximum bending moment

\(\large{ \lambda }\)  (Greek symbol lambda) = modulus of elasticity

\(\large{ A, B, C }\) = points of intersection on frame

\(\large{ R }\) = reaction load at bearing point

\(\large{ I }\) = second moment of area (moment of inertia)

\(\large{ L }\) = span length of the bending member

\(\large{ P }\) = total concentrated load
