Determining Maximum bending moment via shear force diagram

  1. Oct 5, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    [​IMG]

    and by maximum it means in magnitude

    2. Relevant equations

    I figured the best (easiest/quickest) method would be to draw the shear force diagram.

    When I originally did this problem I came up with equations for M and V by dividing the bar into sections from the right until the last section in which I took the section from the right to include the external moment for the M equation. I am not sure how to figure out V for the last section though.


    V=
    0<x<2 V=40-10x V facing down and M going counterclockwise
    2<x<5 V= -5 V facing down and M going counterclockwise
    5<x<7 V= -15 V facing down and M going counterclockwise
    7<x<10 V=-10 facing up and M going counterclockwise
    The part I am not sure about is how the external moment of 35 comes into play in the last section.

    I feel like it would be incorrect to say V = 10 for the last section?


    What would the final shear force plot look like?
    How do I finish this problem?

    Your picture is not showing up. Be sure to determine external reactions first. When you plot a shear diagram, the diagram is unaffected by externally applied moments.

    I found it … :wink:
