Finite Difference Methods for PDEs

B. A beam is resting horizontally on the sharp edges of a room with width L, and has a ceiling attached in the shape ....
At time t = 0 the glue releases and the beam
vibrates. Describe the vibration for t > 0 if the situation is described by
Boundary and initial values are given by
Hint: Use separation of variables so that .....and choose the coordinates so
that x = 0 at height H.
Any Handbook on Mathematics for Engineers can be consulted.
