This online calculator is designed to calculate the slope and deflection of a cantilever beam for load at the free end.
Slope at free end = PL2 / 2EI
Deflection at any section = Px2(3L-x) / 6EI
- P – the externally applied load,
- E – the elastic modulus,
- I – the area moment of Inertia,
- L – the length of the beam and
- x – the position of the load
