## What is the moment of deflection of a cantilever beam?

Cantilever Beams

Cantilever, End Load Deflection: @ x = L Slope: @ x = L Shear: V = +F Moment: M = −F (L − x) Mmax = −FL @ x = 0
Cantilever, Uniform Distributed Load Deflection: @ x = L Slope: @ x = L Shear: V = +w (L − x) Vmax = +wL @ x = 0 Moment: M = −w (L − x)2 / 2 Mmax = −wL2 / 2 @ x = 0

## How do you calculate free end deflection?

Generally, we calculate deflection by taking the double integral of the Bending Moment Equation means M(x) divided by the product of E and I (i.e. Young’s Modulus and Moment of Inertia).

What will be the value of deflection at free end in a cantilever beam subjected to moment at its tip?

The maximum deflection in cantilever beam of span “l”m and loading at free end is “W” kN. Explanation: Maximum deflection occurs at free end distance between centre of gravity of bending moment diagram and free end is x = 2l/3. Maximum deflection (y) = Ax/EI = Wl3/3EI.

### When one end of beam is fixed and other end is totally free then beam what is known as?

Cantilever beam
Cantilever beam: A beam fixed at one end and free at the other end is known as a cantilever beam.

### When cantilever beam is loaded at its free end the maximum compressive stress shall develop at?

Therefore, the maximum compressive stress will be at bottom fibre, because that fibre has minimum section modulus.
