### Where:

\(\large{ \Delta }\) = deflection or deformation

\(\large{ h }\) = height of frame

\(\large{ H }\) = horizontal reaction load at bearing point

\(\large{ w }\) = load per unit length

\(\large{ M }\) = maximum bending moment

\(\large{ \lambda }\) (Greek symbol lambda) = modulus of elasticity

\(\large{ A, B, C, D }\) = points of intersection on frame

\(\large{ R }\) = reaction load at bearing point

\(\large{ I }\) = second moment of area (moment of inertia)

\(\large{ L }\) = span length of the bending member
