1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Find the maximum deflection in the beam. E=205Gpa Beam breadth = 195mm UDL on beam: 40 Bar 2. Relevant equations I have useed the method of superposition to try and solve it. Is this the best way? It has been suggested that finding the displacement by integration would give me a more accurate answer but I'm unsure how to apply it in this case. I am using Mechanics of Materials by R.C. Hibbler for reference. 3. The attempt at a solution I = (bd3) / 12 I = (0.195 x 0.053) / 12 = 2.03125x10-6 Formula: y= (-5 x w L4) / (384 E I ) y = (-5 x 4x106 x 0.1054) / (384 x 205x109 x 2.03125x10-6) y = 0.015mm Thanks for any help.
