Trying to use the Beam and Colum Calculator to get the deflection on a statically indeterminate beam.
I get zero deflection. Will the BACC handle this (hopefully) or am I doing something wrong (probablly).
I have done most of these calculations by hand in the past and thought I would try the beam calculator that is included in inventor to verify. I come up with the exact same issue. Expand that little horizontal red line and you will see that you cannot have two fixed points. I am not sure why inventor includes such an elementary beam calculator as opposed to allowing us to have two fixed points? Anybody? Autodesk?
