fB = F·L3 / (3·E·I) φB = F·L2 / (2·E·I)
It would be helpful to identify "f" and "B" in this equation.
Image under topic "End Load Cantilever Beams" shows a beam in mode 6 vibration, which is quite different from the deflection of an "end-loaded" beam. 220.127.116.11 (talk) 22:46, 21 September 2010 (UTC)
I think it would be more helpful for the reader if a link to solved example like http://civilengineer.webinfolist.com/str/prob62.htm is added in the external links. Skahmad (talk) 15:47, 3 July 2012 (UTC)
This article is too shallow to be useful.
What's especially missing are proofs and also indications on whether the results are exact or approximate.
- Added statements about assumptions under which the formulas were developed.Hermanoere (talk) 23:05, 19 June 2015 (UTC)
Suggest merging this with Beam_(structure)
An article on beams already exists. But that article only talks about types of beams and stresses, not deflection. Since this article (Deflection_(engineering)) talks about deflection only of beams, it should really be a subsection in the other article. Hermanoere (talk) 14:14, 26 June 2015 (UTC)
