This modeling scenario examines the deflection of a cantilever beam under two different distributed loads. Students will have the opportunity to conduct experiments with their own cantilever beam or use data provided in the student version. A mathematical model for the beam deflection will be based on the Euler-Bernoulli beam theory and will be solved using the Laplace transform. Students will then compare their findings with the experimental data in order to validate the model.
