Consider pulley D load. [Appendix C, SS beam with concentrated load not at midspan.]
Relevant equation from Appendix C:
Pab 2
( L a 2 b2 )
vD =
6 LEI
Values:
P = 500 N, L = 1,000 mm, a = 800 mm,
b = 200 mm, EI = 7.95216 109 N-mm2

Computation:
Pab 2
( L a 2 b2 )
vD =
6 LEI
(500 N)(800 mm)(200 mm)
(1,000 mm) 2 (800 mm) 2 (200 mm) 2
=

2
6(1,000 mm)(7.95216 10 N-mm )
= 0.53654 mm

Shaft deflection at D

vD = 0.82053 mm 0.53654 mm = 1.35707 mm = 1.357 mm
