Cantilever Beam Slope - Elastic Deflection
In easy to understand language deflection is degree to which a structural element displaced under load and cantilever is a beam anchored at one end. Use this online engineering calculator and make things easy for yourself.
To calculate Cantilever Beam Slope:
Results:
Formula:
Slope at free end = Pa^{2} / 2EI
Deflection at any section = Px^{2}(3a-x) / 6EI(for x less than a)
Deflection at any section = Pa^{2}(3x-a) / 6EI(for a less than x)
Where,
P is the externally applied load
E is the Elastic Modulus
I is the Area moment of Inertia
Lis the Length of the beam and
x is the position of the load
a is the distance of load from one end of the support
