Finding Maximum Strain

  • #1
Hello,

I am trying to establish what the moment of inertia is for this cantilever beam as well as the maximum strain.

General formals preferred.

Thank you

What have you done so far to try to find this information ?

A quick search should give you all the information you need .

I have found that the inertia is I = 1/12(b)(h^3). However I am having difficulty finding a proper diagram for the strain. There is not going to be a uniform force acting on the beam, but rather a single force at any distance (deltaL) on the beam.
