A basic problem with external beam shear Q load at a given position has close similarities to the case of external moments in this chapter, but the involved Berry functions (now with bar notation) are more complicated. In addition to rotational spring supports at the beam-column ends, translational spring support is included at the right beam end. Results for cantilever beam-columns are then available, then with a number of parameters: load(s) position \(\eta \), rotational spring stiffnesses \(S_0\), \(S_1\) (dimensionless \(s_0\), \(s_1\)), and translational spring stiffness K (dimensionless k).
