In a Mechanical Lab, a metallic beam of length Lbeams= 1 m is tested by applying a load of mass m = 15.5 tons. The beam is made of steel, the Youngs' modulus of steel is Y steel = 2.2 x 1011 Pa. The steel beam has a T-type cross – sectional profile, shown in the diagram below: The steel beam is aligned vertically and then compressed. Calculate the deformation of the beam on vertical.
