Describe the main differences between statically determinate and indeterminate structures and illustrate each by means of a simple example. Figure Q1 shows a plane uniform beam AB of length 2L, constant cross sectional area A and second moment of area I and Young modulus E, which is built-in (fully clamped) at end A and simply supported at the other end B. The beam is subjected to a uniform distributed load of intensity W per unit length applied between its mid-span position C and simply supported end position B. Using the finite element or any other method of structural analysis, determine: the deflection at the position C, the reaction forces at points A and B.
