Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm looking for a parameter or a design guideline that could say weather or not the classical bending theory can be applied to certain beam under certain load. I'm making my dissertation about some work on cantilever beam and it's first natural frequency, so in order to model correctly the beam i would like to know if could use the classical bending theory.

Thanks in advance
