Cantilever beam with a point force at the free end

len         length of the cantilever in µm
wid        width of the cantilever in µm
thc         thickness of the cantilever in µm
frc          point force at free end  in µN
ymod     Young's modulus of the material of the beam in GPa
sel         number 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 cantilever beam with a concentrated end loading. The maximum stress is at the top surface near the clamped edge and the maximum deflection is at the free end. The deflection plot of the beam under load is provided.


-The default material is Silicon with a Young's modulus of 180GPa.
-The beam has uniform cross section.
-The mass of the beam is negligible compared to the end load.
