Elastic deflection at any point along the span of a uniformly loaded cantilevered beam

Description

In engineering, deflection is the degree to which a structural element is displaced under a load. The deflection at any point along the span of a uniformly loaded cantilevered beam can be calculated by the uniform load on the beam, the length of the beam, the modulus of elasticity and the area moment of inertia.
