If i have two cantilever beams with a vertical prop between the free ends as shown in diagram, how do i find the load on the prop?

I have the deflections of the beams to be:

v (top beam)= (PL^3)/(3EI)

v(bottom beam)=(5WL^3)/(48EI)-(PL^3)/(3EI)

the prop is of diameter d, and length a, with youngs modulus E.

Any hints/help appreciated!
