    Vertical displacement does not match calculations

    Tristen Tiems

      Considering a steel 65x50x5mm L-profile beam with a length of 800mm, which is clamped on one side. On the other side, a vertical force of 250N is applied on the shear center. A hand calculation comes down to a downward displacement of 0.7mm, while my Solidworks simulation comes up with almost double that number. Is my calculation wrong, or is something not right about my simulation?
