1) This graph and its table below showed the resultant forces which were achieved when the test on the relationship between deflection (Y) and the spacing achieved (L3) using a load of my choice which was 2.5kg (constant). The scientific instruments used in the lab for this experiment were a digital gauge to measure the final beam deflection and also a hanger to freelance the weight. Beam depth (d) of 0.0063 m. A prediction was made that this beam would indeed prove to be one with a high deflection point due to its depth. Gradient is identical to deflection.

The graph below labelled (1/d3 ) and its graph are used to show the relationship between the deflection (y) and the Depth (d) of 0.007900 m, on the spacing used will remain a constant to enable a versatile range of results to be obtained. We use the same instruments from the previous test. The only variables we shall change are the Depth (d) but the Weight (w). We shall be recording the Deflection (y) alongside the reciprocal of depth (1/d3). This test showed indeed that the trend did not remain versatile and indeed a trend was discovered with reasonable data entry. The...

...1.0 BACKGROUND OF STUDY
The deflections of a beam are an engineering concern as they can create an unstable structure if they are large. People don’t want to work in a building in which the floor beams deflect an excessive amount, even though it may be in no danger of failing. Consequently, limits are often placed upon the allowable deflections of a beam, as well as upon the stresses.
When loads are applied to a...

...Summary
The primary goal of the experiment was to determine the structural stiffness of two cantilevered beams composed of steel and aluminum while maintaining both beams at a constant thickness and cross sectional area. The experiment also investigated material properties and dimensions and their relationship to structural stiffness. The experiment was divided into two separate parts. The results for the first part of...

...The Report of Deflections of Beams and Cantilevers
Summary:
There are four parts in this big experiment, including deflection of a cantilever, deflection of a simply supported beam, the shape of a deflected beam, and circular bending. In these four parts, a same set of laboratory instrument and apparatus is used, concluding a bracket, a moveable digital dial test indicator, U-section channel,...
