Problem 1: Consider the following equations of the Euler—Bernoulli beam theory:

(1a, b)

where w 0 denotes the transverse deection, M the bending moment, q the distributed trans- verse load, and EI the bending stiness. Construct a (mixed) nite element model of the pair of equations such that the resulting coecient matrix is symmetric. Use the independent approximations of w 0 (x) and M (x) as follows:

w 0 (x)

where (φ i , ψ i ) are the interpolation functions of dierent degree used for w 0 and M , respec- tively. Write the nite element model in the form
