	Timoshenko presents a complete solution in his texts on Strength
	Materials, Part II, dating from 1930 and still in use at least
into the
	1960's. His solution also covers the case where the applied load
	distributed over a certain length of the "beam", or there are
multiple point
	loads. There are formulas, curves, and tables.
