Strength of Materials: Beam Deflection

There are few ways that the deflection of a beam can be determined due to the loading that is placed on it. I am going to discuss how to use integration and discontinuity functions. In corresponding articles. However, before you go any further, if you do not know how to generate a moment diagram, or how to calculate the area moment of inertia I suggest you go to those reference pages first.

The tables below provide the maximum deflection and slope for 6 unique setups. .
