**Cantilever Help!!**

Hi,

I'm trying to do some work on a cantilever beam with UDL and load on the end. Is there anybody who could give me a hand because im really struggling.

Many thanks

I think i can work everything else out once i know how i work out the UDL.

Find the volume of the beam. You are given the weight / m^3.

Determining the distributed load due to the weight is really the only thing you'll use the 3rd dimension for in this case. Like was already mentioned, find the volume of the beam and and then multiply that by your weight per unit volume number. That will give you the total weight. Once you get that, I'd simply use a 2D beam to do the analysis.
