    - Cantilever beam: It is a rigid structural element which is anchored at one end from which it protrudes.

    - Cantilever structures are highly based on torque and rotational equilibrium. These constructions allow overhanging structures without having any support pillars.

    - Cantilever beam transfers load to support which manages moment of force and shear stress.

    - Continuous beam: It is a statically indeterminate beam on hinged support which may have end spans cantilever, freely or fixed supported

    - Overhung beam: This beam has one end or both ends extending beyond supports.

    - Simply supported beam: This beam has pinned support at one end and roller support at the other end.
