Hi guys,

I'm doing an assignment for college and designing a disabled hoist. I want to complete FBDs on the top beam especially. Can anyone help answer whether the work i've done is correct?

2. Relevant equations

the equations I used were the sum of all force = 0

and for the bending stress that the shear force = dm/dx

3. The attempt at a solution

Please see the two pictures attached for my attempts at (very quickly) drawing what i believe to be the correct solution. I'm taking the hwole thing to be static, as in the linear actuator is creating a force opposing the Load F. I would really appreciate some feedback, because I find F.B.D's hard to grasp, and I could be totally wrong!

Thanks

L
