The Deflexion of an Elastic Structure

When an external force is applied to a point in an elastic structure the direction of the deflexion at the point will, in general, deviate from the load line. A general relationship is established connecting the deflexions and deviations caused by forces applied in different directions. A short investigation is made of the deflexions caused at one point by loads applied at some second point. The analysis is confined to cases where the lines of force and deflexion are coplanar. A.
