Angle of deflection of an end loaded cantilever beam
In engineering, deflection is the degree to which a structural element is displaced under a load. It may refer to an angle or a distance.
The angle of deflection at the free end of an end loaded cantilever beam can be calculated by the force acting on the tip of the beam and Length of the beam (span).
|ϕB||Angle of deflection (in radians) (dimensionless)|
|F||Force acting on the tip of the beam (N)|
|L||Length of the beam (span) (m)|
|E||Modulus of elasticity ( Young's modulus) (Pa)|
|I||Area moment of inertia (m4)|
