Problem 9.3-5 A cantilever beam with a uniform load (see figure) has a height h equal to 1/8 of the length L . The beam is a steel wide- flange section with E 5 28 3 10 6 psi and an allowable bending stress of 17,500 psi in both tension and compression. Calculate the ratio d / L of the deflection at the free end to the length, assuming that the beam carries the maximum allowable load. (Use the formulas of Example 9-2.)
