Consider putting continouos beams working horizontally (3'-0 wide x 18 inches
high, or so, depending on the span) at the free end (@ top) spanning between
vertical division walls of the floculator (or the filter structure). This way
you can reduce the deflection at the "free end" making the structure more
economical. By doing this you will also create a horizontal walking surface
along the full length of structure which is usually an important consideration
for servicing such structures. 

20 years ago we used Roark formulas to solve statical problems.
