Swing set loading.

Actual question: what is the formula for the deflection of an intermediately loaded simply supported beam from multiple point loads? Reason for the question so you can question my assumptions (and know that I'm not doing homework): I am building a swing-set, from pretty much standard swing set parts, but want to deviate from the standard dimensions a bit - in particular, I want to make the top beam in a single bay setup 1.75' longer than the usual 10'. I am doing this so I can hang a longer bench swing that would hold a couple of people, so this is more length supporting more load, and I want to calculate some things. More inside! [more inside]

Extreme playground

Given optimal circumstance, could a person on a swing set swing 360 degrees, over the overhead bar? If not, what would the circumstances be,on this planet, where they could?
