Hi guys I was wondering if you could help me out with designing a project. I am looking into how much load different beams can take. How should I weigh down the beam? Should I put load on top of it or hang it from the bottom, or something else? If on top, should I just load it all directly on top of the center of mass or should I evenly distribute it about the beam? Also after I measure how much load it could take, is that when I would use the Euler-Bernolli beam equation to interpret results?
