This Demonstration shows some results of the Timoshenko beam theory: the deformation and slope of the centerline of a beam; the angular displacement of its cross sections; the internal moments and shear across the length of the beam with respect to specified load and end conditions. The primary purpose of this Demonstration is to provide images of beam deformation to help students understand the predictions of beam theory.
