Bending Deflection at Given Points

Main Question or Discussion Point

Beam Deflection

I am trying to calculate beam deflection for a number of points?

I know the formula for maximum deflection, but i need to calculate the deflection when.

Lengh = 1m
Possition 1 = 0.5m
Possition 2 = 0.75m

- I apply a weight to possition one, and need to measure deflection at point 2.

- I apply a weight to possition two, and need to find deflection at point 2.

- I apple weights to both possition 1 and 2 (equal) and find deflection at 1 and 2.

If any one can help me, or demonstrate how these equations are found, or just point me in some direction, i would appreciate it heaps...
