Bending of a cantilever beam under its own weight
of the cantilever in µm
wid width of the
cantilever in µm
thickness of the cantilever in µm
den density of the
material in kg/m3
ymod Young's modulus of the material
of the beam in GPa
denoting the selected result.
Use 1 for maximum stress and 2 for maximum deflection and 3 for
spring constant of the beam
Use this form to estimate the bending of a cantilever beam under
its own weight. The maximum stress is at the top surface near the
clamped edge and the maximum deflection is at the free end. The
deflection plot of the beam under its weight is provided.
-The default material is Silicon with a Young's modulus of
-The beam has uniform cross section.
-The weight of the beam is uniformly distributed.
-There is no other load acting on the beam other than its own
