Beam Load Support Formulas
All Beam Load tables are for simple beams supported at the ends. These can be used in the majority of the cases. There are times when it is necessary to know what happens with other loading and support conditions. Some common arrangements are shown below. Simply multiply the values from the Beam Load tables by factors given below.

Calculate the load and deflection of an W200 beam continuous over one support and loaded uniformly on one span.
SOLUTION:
A. From load table for W200 the load for a 60" span is 700 lbs. and deflection is 0.35".
B. Multiply by factors from Table above Load = 700 lb. x 1.30 = 910 lbs. Deflection = 0.35" x 0.92 = 0.322"
Determine load and deflection of an W150 cantilever beam with a concentrated load on the end.
SOLUTION:
A. From load table for W150 the load for a 24" span is 5,360 lbs. and deflection is 0.09".
B. Multiply by factors from Table above. Load = 5,360 lbs. x 0.12 = 643.2 lbs. Deflection - 0.09" x 3.20 = 0.288"
