Bending of a beam clamped at both ends with a force at the
of the beam in µm
wid width of the
beam in µm
thickness of the beam in µm
force at the center of the beam in µN
ymod Young's modulus of the material
of the beam in GPa
denoting the selected result.
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 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 provided.
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
-The beam has uniform cross section.
-The weight of the beam is uniformly distributed.
-The mass of the beam is negligible compared to the center
