Strain energy of a simply supported beam carrying a mid span point load

(Strength of Materials – Er. R.K. Rajput)

The strain energy of the simply supported beam is directly dependent on the values of load applied, length of the beam, modulus of rigidity, breadth and depth of the rectangular section. Depending on the value of the strain energy, the displacement of the linear – elastic system can be determined.
