    So, how would I set this problem up?

    We're asked to determine the deflection of a beam location for a 2000N load. However, the force is directed up the corner NOT centroid. In other words, at beam corner up through the side wall. Kind of like a ledge holding a flower pot.

    Given load=2000N, on the tip of a 1m beam. Beam dimensions are H=80mm B=W=40mm and t=thickness of 1.5mm.

    This type of loading is called eccentric loading. The 2000N force acting at the edge can be replaced by equal load acting at the ...
