Once that is done, you can determine the deflection at C from first principles (if you like doing the math) or you can use software which analyzes beam problems.

To find the true deflection of the beam, you will need to know the modulus of elasticity (E) and the moment of inertia (I) of the beam.

The deflection of your beam would be approximately equal to the sum of the deflections from case 1 and case 4. Your beam is not exactly fixed at point B so the deflection at C will only be approximate. Like I said earlier, in order to find the exact amount of deflection, you would have to analyze the beam from first principles.
