BMD and SFD of an irregular shaped beam

  1. May 11, 2009 #1
    hey, im trying to calculate the bending moment diagram and shear force diagram of an irregular shaped beam. it looks something like this :

    ___________| |______
    |__________| |______|

    *edit: oops the diagram came out all wrong, the beam is basically a rod with a thicker section in the middle.
    this beam has an upward force acting on it at the right end. and has two supports near the left and right side of the thicker part (the actually supports are on the thin part but are very close to the thick part)

    any help would be greatly appreciated
