Notes:
  • Downward applied loads and deflections are positive.
  • Upward shear loads are positive.
  • Concave moment results are positive.
  • Yellow highlights are values of L/360 or greater.
  • Red highlights are values of L/240 or greater.
  • Combinations of load cases may cause the maximum deflection to occur in an unexpected location. Adding a low magnitude point load at multiple locations will allow you to find the maximum deflection
