wid width of the cantilever in µm
thc thickness of the cantilever in µm
mas mass at the free end in kg
ymod Young's modulus of the material of the beam in GPa
sel number denoting the
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 due to an end mass.
The maximum stress is at the top surface near the clamped edge and the maximum
deflection is at the free end. 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 obtained.
-The default material is Silicon with a Young's modulus of 180GPa.
-The beam has uniform cross section.
-The bending of the mass is negligible
-There is no other load acting on the beam other than the gravitational pull on
