I'm hoping someone can help me with some questions to know whether or not the table can be supported by this design and how to calculate the length of the support runners and the width necessary to prevent tipping/rocking along the width as well.
Table length and width ~90" x 36"
Angle of the cantilever arm (terminology?) either 130 degrees or 50 degree
- Which of the two designs from the elevation view would provide better support (could I use either as long as runners are long enough?) Which would require shorter runners [longer overhang]?
- What would the minimum width between the two support arms would I need to prevent horizontal tipping?
- How do I calculate tipping weight on the end of the table (opposite of the support)?
Material is wood. I found some figures for "E = modulus of elasticity" and for the wood I'm using it'd be between 1.6-1.7 and the user posted this note:
units of measure are psi, values must be multiplied by $10^6$.
This is all beyond my math skills, but am willing to try and learn!
