“The purpose of this thesis is to develop a method for determining the reactions and deflection curve of continuous beams partially supported by an elastic foundation. The method involves representation of an arbitrary loading and the intermediate redundant reactions as Fourier Series. Redundant intermediate reactions are determined by the solution of an equal number of linear equations. The remaining reactions are determined by the application of statics.
This same method can be used for simply supported beams on an elastic foundation and for continuous beams without an elastic foundation”--Abstract, page ii.
