Maximum elastic deflection of an off-center loaded beam supported by two simple supports

In engineering, deflection is the degree to which a structural element is displaced under a load.
The maximum elastic deflection on a beam supported ... more

Elastic deflection at any point along the span of a center loaded beam

Elastic deflection is the degree to which a structural element is displaced under a load.
The deflection at any point, along the span of a center ... more

Backlash (due to operating center modifications)

In mechanical engineering, backlash, sometimes called lash or play, is clearance or lost motion in a mechanism caused by gaps between the parts. It can be ... more

Influence of the wind on a building

A building is a man-made structure with a roof and walls standing more or less permanently in one place. In general when the wind blows on a building then ... more
