|Problem # p013|
|A beam of length L=4m is subject to a distributed load which weighs (that is acting downwards onto the beam) 80 kN/m. The load starts at the left end of the beam and extends only to the half-way mark, x=L/2.|
Determine the support forces R1 and R2.
Determine the equation for the internal shear force V(x) and moment
M(x) as function of x and calculate their values at
at x = 0, x=1/4*L, x=1/2*L (two different values for shear force), x=3/4*L, and x=L
