Hello,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I would like to know how to find the deflection of simple 2 beam assemblies. In college, I remember only doing one beam problems. For example, a beam supported at both ends with a load in the center would follow the equation v_max= -(P*L^3)/(48*E*I).

What if 2 identical beams supported at both ends are place on top of each other and perpendicular. Looks like a square cross at the top view and the load is applied in the center. Is there an max deflection equation for that?

I'd assume the load could be cut in half and calculated with the one beam equation?
