of the beam
Use this form to estimate the bending of a cantilever beam with a concentrated
end loading. 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 load is
-The default material is Silicon with a Young's modulus of 180GPa.
-The beam has uniform cross section.
-The mass of the beam is negligible
compared to the end load.
