BE4: Tie Rod with Lateral Loading

A tie rod is subjected to the action of a tensile force N and a lateral load P applied at the middle as shown in the figure. Determine the maximum deflection??, the slope at the left-hand end and the maximum bending moment??. In addition, compare these three quantities for the case of the unstiffned tie rod (N = 0).This is one example of our Verification Manual. You can find the whole manual in SSD and TEDDY via menue Help > Verification Manual, the input data files in TEDDY via menue Help> examples... > verification.
