ME6.3 Flexible I-Beam (PASCO)
This flexible I-beam is made of plastic so it can be visibly bent by hand. It shows the basic reasons for using this cross-section in construction. It is four times as stiff in the upright orientation as it is sideways. The beam does not sag under its own weight and returns to its original straightness after bending. Warming the beam makes it less stiff and cooling makes it more stiff.
