Hi, quick question

Ive been using the beam deflection forumla EIV=........

and im getting answers of 1.9mm for example

does this mean that the deflection is in the south direction or north?

Cheers

Surely you can figure this out based on where the load is placed?

Macaulay's beam deflection

febbie22: Using the Macaulay method, positive answers usually mean upward deflection.
