# Square Tubing Deflection Calculator

Online calculator to calculate deflection of hollow square tube. Hollow structural sections are made from metal with square or rectangular tube section. ASTM A500 is the common steel specification used for hollow structural tubes. This specification forms welded carbon steel tubing in round, square and rectangular shapes. This square tubing deflection calculator calculates tube deflection for square based on length of beam, tube size, decimal gauge and load.

#### Formula:

Hollow Square Tube Deflection = (f x l x l x l) / (t x y x (((s - k^{4})^{4} /12) - ((s - (2 x k))^{4} / 12)))
**Where,**
F = Force
L = Length of Beam
T = Type of Ends
Y = Material Type
S = Tube Size
K = Decimal Gauge
### Example:

A steel hollow square tube has center load of 6 mg, length of beam as 7 cm, tube size as 9 cm and decimal gauge as 5 AWG.It has free ends.
Find square tubing deflection?

#### Solution:

Square Tubing Deflection = (6 x 7 x 7 x 7) / (48 x 29700000 x ((9-5^{4})^{4} /12) - (((9-(2 × 5))^{4} / 12)))

= 1.5308312468845126e-26 .
