Stress between load and "a" load point

Stress between load and "b" load point

Stress at load application

If the cross section is constant this is the maximum stress.

Deflection for location between load and "a" point

Deflection for location between load and "b" point

Maximum deflection at load

Let "a" be the length of the shorter
segment and "b" of the longer one.

The maximum deflection

is in the longer segment, at |

Where:

E = | Modulus of Elasticity | lbs/in^{2} |
(N/mm |

I = | Moment of Inertia | in^{4} |
(mm^{4}) |

W = | Load | lbs | (N) |

s = | Stress at the cross-section being evaluated | lbs/in^{2} |
(N/mm^{2}) |

y = | Deflection | inches | (mm) |

x = | Some distance as indicated | inches | (mm) |

a = | Some distance as indicated | inches | (mm) |

b = | Some distance as indicated | inches | (mm) |

= | Some distance as indicated | inches | (mm) |

Z = |
section modulus of the cross-section of the beam = I/z | in^{3} |
(mm^{3)} |

z = |
distance from neutral axis to extreme fiber (edge) | inches | (mm) |

- Please note letter "" (lower case "L") is different than "I" (Moment of Inertia).
- Deflections apply only to constant cross sections along entire length.
