# Beam calculations. Part I

In this section, you can perform online calculations of beams under concentrated load. Calculations determine the deflection, the angle of rotation, and the bending moment at an arbitrary given point of the beam under various boundary conditions.

### Initial data:

L – beam length, millimeters;

a – coordinate of the point of application of the concentrated load, millimeters;

X – the coordinate of the solution point, millimeters;

Ix – moment of inertia of the section, meters 4;

Е – elastic modulus of the material of the beam, pascals

## Beam calculation # 1.1

Calculation of a cantilever beam under concentrated load.

#### Boundary conditions:

RL = 0 – support reaction at the extreme left point;

ML = 0 – bending moment at the extreme left point;

θR = 0 – angle of rotation at the extreme right point;

YR = 0 – deflection of the beam at the extreme right point.
