Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi,
If I am using a welded structure as shown in the pic attached, would my 2500 lb force act on the I beam only (beam on which force is actually acting), or would it be distributed? How would the forces be transferred at various joints? Besides the I beam, all other members are box tubes. I wish to select an I beam and I wish to know the exact force acting on it. Should I design the I beam for 2500 lb force or would it be lesser because of the distribution of the forces?

Please help.
Thanks!
