Cantilever deflection

  1. Jul 8, 2008 #1
    It's been a while since I've studied mechanics. Would someone remind me as to the equation for the deflection of a cantilever beam with a uniformly distributed load on only a part of the beam? I remember the equation for a load on the entire beam is (wL^4)/(8EI)
