material flexure

Question:

Is there an adjustment of sorts accounting for components flexing or drooping vs. a ridged member of thick steels?  The thicker stock with a given length stays reasonably straight, however the thinner the material the more it can flex in the “real world” it maybe affected by forces of gravity for instance?

Thanks,

Bob

I think you want the IDX Beam Analysis Tool plug-in.

Try "BeamBoy" - it is free and written by a PhD guy in the USA

IDX is excellent but a bit too expensive.
