710 CHAPTER 9 Deflections of Beams Deflection Formulas Problems 9.3-1 through 9.3-7 require the calculation of deflections using the formulas derived in Examples 9-1, 9-2, and 9-3. All beams have constant flexural rigidity EI . Problem 9.3-1 A wide-flange beam (W 12 ± 35) supports a uniform load on a simple span of length L ² 14 ft (see figure). Calculate the maximum deflection d max at the midpoint and the angles of rotation u at the supports if q ² 1.8 k/ft and E ² 30 ± 10 6 psi. Use the formulas of Example 9-1.
