If you encounter a loading case that is not covered by one of the worksheets in this workbook,
then you can still easily analyze the beam by using superposition. Let's illustrate the procedure

Step 1. Use the worksheet provided in the present workbook to analyze the beam for L

Step 2. Copy the table of results from the worksheet and paste the table into a blank w
Remember to use "Paste Special/Values". You will then have something like the follow

Step 4. Use the usual Excel commands, for example the Sum() function, to create a fou
consisting of the sum of the entries in the three tables of results. By the principle of sup
the fourth table is the solution to the beam when all three loadings act simultaneously.

you can use Excel's plotting and formatting capabilities to put the results in the form bes

Warning: You cannot find the maximum moment (or deflection or shear) for the combin
case simply by adding the maximum moments for the individual load cases, because th
maximum values may not occur at the same location. Instead, you find the maximum f
combined load case by examining the list of moments for the combined load and finding
largest one.
