786 CHAPTER 9 Deflections of Beams Problem 9.10-3 A cantilever beam AB of length L ± 6 ft is constructed of a W 8 ² 21 wide-flange section (see figure). A weight W ± 1500 lb falls through a height h ± 0.25 in. onto the end of the beam. Calculate the maximum deflection d max of the end of the beam and the maximum bending stress s max due to the falling weight. (Assume E ± 30 ² 10 6 psi.) Solution 9.10-2 Weight W dropping onto a simple beam Height h is very large.
