I was hoping i could get some support on calculating re-action forces and creating a shear force and bending moment diagram.
Some of the examples i have worked on relate to a beam supported at either end.
But the example below has gotten me a little confused.
I have a 21m member that is supported at 4 points along the member spaced 7m apart. The member is UDL loaded with 200kN/m. (assumed no horizontal forces).
I can work out an equivalent point load of 4200 acting at the center on the member (10.5m from the ends).
Not sure what to do from here?
Can anyone help?
