- I am assuming that you already know how to create a beam bending moment diagram and you have already calculated all the bending moment values at suitable locations of the beam.

- You have to understand the following basic equation carefully,

The Euler Bernoulli beam equation theory is the simple but practical tool for validating the beam deflection calculation. This beam theory is applied only for the laterally loaded beam without taking the shear deformation into account.
