Elastic deflection to any point along the span of an end loaded cantilever 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 an end loaded cantilevered beam, can be calculated by the force acting , the length of the beam,the modulus of elasticity and area moment of inertia.
