## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hello,

I am looking for some advice on calculating the beam deflection on a setup described below.

There is an "I Beam" sitting across the back of two lorry trailers with a uniformly distributed load in the middle of the beam.

I am slightly confused as to what type of support this would be if the beam is resting on the back of a flatbed to allow me to perform some hand calculations?

Any advice would be appreciated
