Analysis of A Uniform Bernoulli – Euler Beam on Winkler Foundation Subjected to Harmonic moving load
This paper established Galerkin Finite element method coupled with Newmark Beta time integration method to analyze Winkler foundation subjected to a harmonic moving load on a uniform Bernoulli – Euler Beam. MATLAB software was used to implement the Newmark time integration method to obtain the Analysis. The deflection of the Beam increase when the acceleration of the load was change from am = 2m/s2 to am = 15m/s2. Also when the position of the load was change from n = 5 to n = 10. It was observed from the results that the position of the load and the acceleration of the moving load affect the deflection of the Beam.
