(EI = 1) is fully clamped at the left end (point
A, node 1), and supported at both the mid-
span (point B, node 2) and the right end
(point C, node 3) by rollers. A bending
moment (M = 14 Nm) is applied at the mid-
span as shown.
a. Express the global equilibrium equation using a finite element formulation.
b. Determine the slopes at the mid-span and at the right end.
c. Find all reaction forces and moments.

Example 22 (Quiz 2011) if four Gaussian points are used in a Q4
element, determine the coordinates of Gaussian point G1 in
Cartesian coordinate system of iso-parametric element Q4 as
shown. Compute Jacobian matrix [J] and its determinant |J|.
