### Beam Deflection Calculator and Stress Equations for Continuous Beam, with Two Equal Spans, Uniform Load

Beam Deflection and Stress Formula and Calculators

Structural Beam Deflection, Stress, Bending Equations and calculator for a Continuous Beam, with Two Equal Spans, Uniform Load.

Beam Section Modulus Z

Z = I/c

I = Moment of inertia Cross Section : Units in4 (m4)
z = Distance neutral axis to extreme fiber: Units in (m)

General Beam Stress at any Given Point

Beam Deflection at any Point

Critical Beam Deflections

Where:

 E = Modulus of Elasticity psi (N/mm2) I = Moment of Inertia in4 (mm4) W = Beam Load lbs (N) s = Beam Stress at the cross-section being evaluated Lbs/in2 (N/mm2) y = Beam Deflection inches (mm) x = Some distance as indicated inches (mm) u = Some distance as indicated inches (mm) a, b = Some distance as indicated inches (mm) L = Some distance as indicated inches (mm) l = Some distance as indicated inches (mm) Z = section modulus of the cross-section of the beam = I/z in3 (mm3) z = distance from neutral axis to extreme fiber (edge) inches (mm)
• Please note letter "l " (lower case "L") is different than "I" (Moment of Inertia).
• Deflections apply only to constant cross sections along entire length.
