Deflection of Beams

  • J. D. Todd


In this chapter we shall consider the deflection of a beam that is subject to transverse loading. The deflection can be thought of as being caused by two different effects: the bending moment and the shear force. If the beam is relatively long when compared with its depth, the shear force will only make a small contribution to the deflection and can be neglected. For the time being we shall only consider the deflection due to bending.
