Shear Force and Moment Diagram

P1 = 1000 N
P2 = 2000 N
L1 = 0.5 m
L2 = 2.0 m
L3 = 4.0 m

  1. Determine the support forces R1 and R2.
  2. Write the equations for the shear force and moment as function of x (the distance from the left end of the beam).
  3. Determine the values for the shear force and moment at the points where forces (given and supports) are acting on the beam.
  4. Draw the corresponding shear force and moment diagram.
