!!!kindly look at the attachment to better understand!!! I have a project which has this configuration of two 5" dia double E.H,25 ft long pipe seperated by a web vertically of dimension 1x2x25 inches also simply supported at the ends. If you could visualize by rotating the below thing by 90 degree clockwise you will see what i am saying, " o-o " A load of 5000 lb is acting on top of it at an equal interval of 3 ft . I should make sure that it could hold this load without any bending or deflection. I have no clue to go about calculating the bending or deflection for the given load. It would be great if anyone could help me in this. !!!kindly look at the attachment to better understand!!! Thank you, dmurugan.
