Floor Loading - Bending Moment?

  1. Nov 7, 2013 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    I'm trying to find the bending moment on beam CE in the attached problem. There is loading from all 3 floor slabs. I'm struggling to figure out the maximum bending moment at mid-span because the 2 distributed loads from the 2 smaller slabs are not uniform as such

    Obviously there is the reaction force minus the udl from the top slab, just struggling to work out what the BM is from the triangular load.: +(152×4)-(20×4×2)-???
