## 24 Use the graphical method to construct the

shear-force and bending-moment diagrams for the
beams shown. Label all significant points on each
diagram and identify the maximum moments (both
positive and negative) along with their respective
locations. Clearly differentiate straight-line and
curved portions of the diagrams.
Fig. P7.24

Solution
Beam equilibrium:

M A = ( 4.5 kips/ft )( 7 ft )( 7 ft )

Ey = 18.36 kip

## Fy = Ay + Ey + ( 4.5 kips/ft )( 7 ft ) 38 kips

= Ay + 18.36 kips + ( 4.5 kips/ft )( 7 ft ) 38 kips = 0
Ay = 11.86 kips

Solution
Beam equilibrium:

## M A = ( 55 kN )( 3 m) (15 kN/m)( 3 m)( 7.5 m)
