## Marks 1

The fixed end moment of a uniform beam of span $$l$$ fixed at the ends, subjected to a central point load $$P$$ is

A beam fixed at the ends and subjected to lateral loads only is statically indeterminate and the degree of indeterminacy is

The moments at the end $$'A'$$ and $$'B'$$ of a beam $$'AB'$$ where end $$(a)$$ is fixed and $$(b)$$ is hinged, when the end $$(b)$$ sinks by an amoun...
