A finite difference formulation for determining the static deflection stress configuration of a long beam under tension is presented. The formulation developed in the course of studies of the Mohole riser, which has a variable tension, section modulus, and horizontal loading, and is so long (up to 18,000 ft) that direct solutions could not be found.
