A beam is supported as shown in the figure; it is intended to resist concentrated vertical load F1, located L1 from the left end, and distributed vertical load Fd2, which acts over a length L2 from the right end of the beam. The beam is sectioned into units with endpoints A, B, C, and D. The assignment in this problem is to draw the Shear and Moment diagrams for this beam. The X direction is along the beam.

The first step is to draw a free-body diagram (FBD) of the overall beam to calculate the reaction forces at A and D. To determine the reaction forces, the distributed vertical load may be replaced with a concentrated vertical load F2, which acts at a length L2/2 from the right end of the beam.

The end reaction +Dy then closes the shear diagram back to zero. hence the axes must be shifted horizontally to fit in with the overall moment diagram. one integrates the shear functions in each subsection. hence the axes must be shifted horizontally to fit in with the overall shear diagram.000 0 L1 L / 2 0 L2 L / 2 Computer sets: Visualize: L = 10 m Beam with loading conditions. In order to determine the moment diagram given the shear diagram. and vD. and Dy. the moment must be zero at the left and right ends of the beam. the shear forces are: v AB x Ay v BC x Ay F1 vCD x Ay F1 Fd 2 x The shear forces in the first two subsections AB and BC are constant. moment magnitudes mA. free-body diagrams of each subsection are drawn.

Note further that at point B. while in Example 2. in Example 1. mC = 12. the linearly-changing moment in BC has negative slope. which translates to a change in moment slope at point B. while this parabola increases before decreasing to zero moment in Example 2.175 (N).5 (N and m). though the linearly-changing shear in CD has negative slope –Fd2 in both examples. and Dy = 7.
