    Overhang beam

    Hi guys,

    Kinda run into a problem here. I know how to solve simple beams, but cant get started with this one. How do I calculate the reactions and the moment??

    If you've made to this section of the exercise, you know that the sum of all forces should be zero to achieve equilibrium.

    It is defined as a beam that has its one or both ends stretching out past its supports. It can have any number of supports. In other words, it is a beam when a cantilever portion is hanging out of a simply supported beam.
