Experimental Verification of the Equation for Small Elastic Deformations of a Beam Applied to a Cantilever
Taylor F. Hyndman
Dr. Eduardo Velasco, Faculty Mentor

I tested the equation that describes the deformation of the cantilever under the approximation of small elastic deformations, using different beam materials with varying masses attached. I compared experimental data with the predictions of the theory that describes the displacement of the cantilevers. Through calipers and taking pictures, I was able to measure this deformation and test the theory.
