Large Deflection of Cantilever Beam with Uniformly Distributed Load Using Homotopy Analysis Method
The large deflection behavior of prismatic cantilever beams subjected to uniformly distributed load is investigated. An approximate analytical solution is obtained using the homotopy analysis method (HAM). The solution is validated by the nonlinear shooting method. This reveals that the solution is accurate, efficient and convenient for cantilever beams with uniformly distributed loads.
