Use this form to estimate the bending of a double clamped beam subjected to a
force at the middle of the beam. The maximum stress is at the top surface near the clamped edge and the maximum
deflection is at the middle. The deflection plot of the beam due to load is
The plot shows the deflection of the beam along the length of the beam. Using
the crosshair, the deflection at any point along the length of the beam can be
-The default material is Silicon with a Young's modulus of 180GPa.
-The beam has uniform cross section.
-The weight of the beam is uniformly
-The mass of the beam is negligible compared to the center load.
