It did look simplistic. My first thought was it was interesting but it needs a diagram to define the support and load positions. My second thought was it didn't seem applicable to a horizontal beam with a web support like the scroll in the second photo or with the cross-section changes in as in the third photo.

I see it has titanium in the materials list and I have some 10' lengths tubing - my third thought was it would be fun to try applying a weight in various configuration and see how close the numbers came to the actual deflection.

The "wood" material entry seems simplistic too, but perhaps a starting point.

Ok, I'm out of thoughts now. :) But I still bookmarked the page.
