Bending of a cantilever beam with a mass attached to the free
of the cantilever in µm
wid width of the
cantilever in µm

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 cantilever beam due to
an end mass. The maximum stress is at the top surface near the
clamped edge and the maximum deflection is at the free end. 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 bending of the mass is negligible
-There is no other load acting on the beam other than the
gravitational pull on the mass
