I have a beam deflection problem. The beam is supported on both ends with a uniform load centered. The uniform load is only a portion of the total length of the beam. I am unable to find the correct formula to calculate the defection. Any help would be appreciated. So far I have tried this equation.

5/384 *Wl cubed/EI

The equation you've listed is for when the distributed load is along the entire beam.  There aren't any rule of thumb or simple deflection formulas for the case you have because of the complexity of the loading.  If you give me the details of the problem you have I can step through it.
