Homework Help: Bending of Beams - Deflection - Stress - Strain

  1. Oct 27, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    A beam of lengh is supported in a clamp system. distance between clamp is 1m. Loads applied at 250mm and 750mm. strain guage fitted at 175mm with 100ohm resistance. Weight is applied at points a and b.

    2. Relevant equations

    Dont know?

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I am in need of the formulas please. I need to find out the theory for deflection, stress and strain and any other information i can extract.
