Multi-Section Beam Bending Calculations

  1. Nov 20, 2012 #1
    Hello all,

    I have a shaft supported on both sides with a charge on each bearing, as shown on the following link: http://www.engineersedge.com/beam_bending/beam_bending4.htm

    I need to calculate the shaft deflection with the formula provided on the website, but my shaft often have different section (ie Ø23 mm machined to Ø20 mm for the bearings). I am not too sure how to calculate a deflection since the Moment of Intertia will depend on the position.

    Thank you very much for any help.

    Max Otis
