    Analysis of scoop stretcher -- deflection and bending stress help

    I wanted to do a theoritical force analysis on the scooping part of scoop stretcher (a tapered rectangular plate). Can anyone suggest how to determine its deflection and bending stress ?

    Would you be able to post a free-body diagram (FBD) of the tapered rectangular plate, showing constraints, applied forces, dimensions, and plate material?
