I'm afraid this description of the beam and the materials composing it is a little vague.cvnaditya said:

Are we talking something like a leaf spring, with two different materials lapped together? Is one portion of the length of the beam one material, and the rest of the beam composed of another material?

You should try to be as specific as possible about the construction of your beam. Pictures always help.

Yes, your right one length one material and rest of the length will be another material...SteamKing said:I'm afraid this description of the beam and the materials composing it is a little vague.

I derived the formula using basic govering equation yesterday and verified it with MATLAB program for cantilever beam. Both the results are correct, it is used for having two different materials and moment of inertia for a cantilever beam.

yes sir, i have posted formula. i hope it is correct and useful.OldEngr63 said:

A cantilever beam is a type of structural element that is supported at only one end, with the other end projecting freely into space. It is commonly used in construction and engineering to provide support for structures such as bridges, balconies, and shelves.

When a load is applied to a cantilever beam, it experiences both bending and shear stresses. The bending stress causes the beam to deflect, or bend, while the shear stress causes it to twist. The magnitude of these stresses depends on the type and magnitude of the load, as well as the material properties of the beam.

Young's modulus, also known as the modulus of elasticity, is a measure of the stiffness of a material. It describes the relationship between stress and strain in a material under tension or compression. The higher the Young's modulus, the stiffer the material is.

The deflection of a cantilever beam is directly proportional to the Young's modulus of the material. Therefore, if a cantilever beam is made of two different materials with different Young's moduli, the deflection will be greater in the material with the lower modulus and less in the material with the higher modulus.

The deflection of a cantilever beam with two Young's moduli is affected by several factors, including the type and magnitude of the load, the geometry of the beam, and the material properties of the two materials. Other factors such as temperature, humidity, and aging of the materials can also have an impact on the deflection. Additionally, the method of support and the boundary conditions of the beam can also affect its deflection.
