Deflection and Slope in Cantilever Beam at Different Load Conditions

The deflection and slope in a cantilever beam is shown for the various load conditions. These deflection and slope formulas can be directly used in the analysis and the design of cantilever beams. Here “delta” shows the deflection and “theta” is the slope. Both the deflection and and slope criteria is used in the design. Deflection criteria is used to check for the condition of maximum allowable deflection as per the prescribed code of practice.
