A Graphical Method for Determining the Deflection of a Beam With Varying Moment of Inertia

In most cases of compound beams and built-up girders it is customary, in order to obtain an economical design, to vary the moment of inertia of the section throughout the length of the beam by curtailing the flange plates in accordance with the reduction of the B.M. at the respective sections.
