Beam Deflection and Stress Formula and Calculators

Structural Beam Deflection, Stress, Bending Equations and calculator for a Beam Supported on Both Ends With Overhanging Supports of equal Length and Uniform Loading . Stress between nearest support point and outer end Stress between the two supports  Stress at supports If cross-section is constant, the greater of these is the maximum stress.

If l is greater than 2c, the stress is zero at points on both sides of the center. If cross-section is constant and if l = 2.828c, the stresses at supports and center are equal and opposite, and are: Deflection between support point and outer end  Deflection between supports Deflection at the ends Deflection at center If l is between 2c and 2.449c, there are maximum upward deflections at points on both sides of the center, which are, Where:

 E = Modulus of Elasticity psi (N/mm2) I = Moment of Inertia in4 (mm4) W = Load lbs (N) s = Stress at the cross-section being evaluated Lbs/in2 (N/mm2) y = Deflection inches (mm) x = Some distance as indicated inches (mm) u = Some distance as indicated inches (mm) c = Some distance as indicated inches (mm) L = Some distance as indicated inches (mm) = 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 " " (lower case "L") is different than "I" (Moment of Inertia).
• Deflections apply only to constant cross sections along entire length.
