Strain energy stored in a cantilever beam carrying a free end point load 

(Strength of Materials – Er. R.K. Rajput)

The strain energy stored in the cantilever beam is directly proportional to the load applied, length of the beam, modulus of rigidity, breadth and depth of the rectangular section. Using the strain energy, the displacements of the linear elastic system can be calculated.
