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

I am attempting to build a fixture which will place uniform tension onto one surface of a rectangular beam. I know that I must force the beam to deflect along a set path, but I am having trouble determining what the equation for this path needs to be. Any guidance on this would be very helpful. Thanks!

Mike
