Visualizing Solutions to the Beam Equation

BeamViz: Visualization Function

Unit load pushing up, a clamp at the left and a free left end: This is a first-order model for the deflection of an airplane wing.

Fixed Knobs that rotate freely at both ends, load: Approximates the defllection of a sieve loaded by shearing flow.

A box of width 1/8 sitting at x=3/4 for a double cantilever beam.

A point load at the center of a beam clamped at the left and sitting on a pinned point at the right.

A load applied to the center with balancing loads applied at the ends: Three Point Loading
