 # Cantilever Beam Slope - Elastic Deflection

In easy to understand language deflection is degree to which a structural element displaced under load and cantilever is a beam anchored at one end. Use this online engineering calculator and make things easy for yourself.

## Beam Slope

### To calculate Cantilever Beam Slope:

lbs

• Elastic Modulus(E)

psi

• Area moment of inertia(Iz)

inches

• Length of the beam(L)

inches

• Distance of load from one end of the support(a)

inches

•

### Results:

• Slope at free end: • Deflection(y) in inches: Formula:

Slope at free end = Pa2 / 2EI

Deflection at any section = Px2(3a-x) / 6EI(for x less than a)

Deflection at any section = Pa2(3x-a) / 6EI(for a less than x)

Where,

P is the externally applied load

E is the Elastic Modulus

I is the Area moment of Inertia

Lis the Length of the beam and

x is the position of the load

a is the distance of load from one end of the support
