Singularity Function
Process
1) Write the load function w(x) in
terms of singularity functions.
2) Integrate again to get S(x)
3) Integrate twice to get M(x)

Now write an equation for the loading in terms of singularity functions.
Next, Integrate w(x) to get S(x), the shear loading function
No constant of integration is needed
since this completely describes the
shear.

Note that the first term in the singularity function will always be evaluated as x
2
since x is
always greater than 0 and the last term will always be zero since xl. We can then simplify
the last two equations.
