Subject/Feature: Checked By Date Simple Beam - Uniformly Distributed Load Input Output Beam characteristics Shears, Moments and Deflections Uniformly distributed load Beam characteristics w = kip/ft uniformly distributed load L = ft beam length E = ksi element elasticity modulus I = in4 element moment of inertia x = ft position for beam internal forces calculation Shears, Moments and Deflections wt= w*L  = kip total equivalent uniform load R = V = w*L/2  = kip support reactions / end shear Vx= w*(L/2-x)  = kip shear at x distance Mmax= w*L2/8  = kip*ft maximum moment Mx= w*x*(L-x)/2  = kip*ft moment at x distance ∆max= 5*w*L4/(384*EI)  = in maximum deflection ∆x= w*x*(L3-2*L*x2+x3)/24*EI  = in deflection at x distance References: Manual of Steel Construction - American Institute of Steel Construction Inc., 2005
