Homework Help: Did I draw the moments correct in a shelter? (engineering)

  1. Dec 17, 2015 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    I had to analyze a shelter with a vertical load and 2 horizontal loads, the picture I added is for a vertical load (eg snowload: action) I needed to draw the moments that are mainly there..(black arrows M1-M8) are they correct?
    and it's fixed
    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    View attachment 93454

    or is this one correct? I think that this one is more correct:

    Diagram doesn't show where horizontal loads are applied. Diagram 93454 was unobtainable. It would probably help to identify x, y and z axes, and to express forces and moments in relation to those axes. At the end, the various components of force or moment can be combined vectorially.
