Problem # p051
Internal Shear Force and Moment
A beam of length
is subject to a distributed load which weighs (that is acting downwards onto the beam)
. The load starts at x=L/3 and extends all the way to the right end of the beam.
Determine the total weight of the load.
Determine the support forces R
Determine the values of the internal shear force V(x) and that of the internal moment M(x)
at x= 0.0 m
at x= 2.0 m
at x= 3.0 m
at x= 4.5 m
at x= 6.0 m
Provide a sketch of the shear force and of the moment diagram guided by the values you calculated above.
