# Chapter-2: Slope Deflection Method

## Example: Analyze the propped cantilever shown by using slope defection

method. Then draw Bending moment and shear force diagram.

## Solution: End A is fixed hence A =0

End B is Hinged hence B 0
Assume both ends are fixed and therefore fixed end moments are

## In the above equations there is only one unknown B .

To solve we have boundary condition at B;
Since B is simply supported, the BM at B is zero
ie. MBA=0.
From equation (2) MBA =

## Substituting these values in the slope deflection equations we get

MAB = 15 + 9.577 0.75 ( 20.795 ) = 21.01 KNM

## MBA = +15 + 2 ( 9.577 ) 0.75 ( 20.795 ) = 18.55 KNM

MBC = - 30 + 2 ( 9.577 ) - 7.714 = - 18.55 KNM

Example: Analyse the frame using slope deflection method and draw the
Bending Moment Diagram.

## It can be observed from figure in that direction of moments due to sway in

member AB are anticlockwise and that for member CD are clockwise. Wise shall
be taken to incorporate the same in the slope deflection equation.
