Can anybody tell me how to work out the deflection of a cantilever beam with a stepped diameter? I have looked through Roark's Formulas but can't seem to be able to do it :grumpy:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The diameter of the beam would vary from 5mm to 3mm and back up to 5mm.

I have attached a pic to explain.

Thanks for your help
