## How do you calculate deflection?

Generally, deflection can be calculated by **taking the double integral of the Bending Moment Equation, M(x) divided by EI (Young’s Modulus x Moment of Inertia)**.

- Select the add-in to load or unload. The additional functionality appears throughout the product user interface. The SOLIDWORKS Add-Ins tab contains some commands for the ScanTo3D and Toolbox add-ins.

## What is deflection formula?

Generally, we calculate deflection by taking the double integral of the Bending Moment Equation means **M(x) divided by the product of E and I (i.e. Young’s Modulus and Moment of Inertia)**. … This number defines the distance in which the beam can be deflected from its original position.

## What is maximum deflection?

Typically, the maximum deflection is limited to **the beam’s span length divided by 250**. Hence, a 5m span beam can deflect as much as 20mm without adverse effect.
