1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Hi all, I have a problem determining the moment and shear force at a location. The moment, I think, I have already solved. But I get stuck at calculating the shear force at the same location. It is for a element that is suspended in water, thus the weight of the element needs to be compensated for the buoyancy also. Additionally, there is buoyancy attached. See the attached email for all the details. 2. Relevant equations Wsubmerged (Ws) = Wdry (W) * (ρsteel (ρs) - ρwater (ρw))/ ρsteel Buoyancy force (Bu)= Buoyancy (B) * g Tangential component of weight (Wx) = Ws * sin(α*(pi/180)) Normal component of weight (Wy) = Ws * cos(α*(pi/180)) Tangent component of buoyancy (Bx) = Bu * sin(α*(pi/180)) Normal component of buoyancy (By) = Bu * cos(α*(pi/180)) Bending moment at end (Mb) = Wx * Yc + Wy * Xc - (Bx * Yb + By * Xb) Shear force (V) = ? 3. The attempt at a solution see attachment, could someone help me with this problem? Many thanks in advance!
