Input interpretation:

maximum deflection of a beam


Input values:

support type | cantilever\nforce type | point load\nforce | 200 lbf  (pounds-force)\nbeam length | 48 inches\ndistance from end | 18 inches\nYoung\'s modulus | 3×10^7 psi  (pounds-force per square inch)\ncross section | square I-beam\nsection height | 2 inches\nsection width | 0.5 inches\nweb height | 1.8 inches\nweb thickness | 0.1 inches


Result:

 0.33 inches (at x = 48 inches)


Reactions:

R_1 | F | 200 lbf  (pounds-force)\nM_1 | F alpha | 3600 lbf in  (pound-force inches)


Maximum stress:

 26 ksi  (kips-force per square inch) (at x = 0 inches)
