    I need to find the formula which is in the red circle. Beam is simply supported at both ends and there is center load. Do you think that this is correct?
    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Seems the right equation for flexural deflection, but, in addition, there could be a much smaller deflection due to shear.
