Hi everyone. I would really appreciate if someone would help me with determination of floor load on columns (column tributary area). Normally uniformly distributed load acting on a beam is halved and each half-load is allocated to one column supporting the beam. In this case however, there is an 8 m beam spanning between a column 1 and 2, uniformly distributed load of magnitude of 80kN/m runs from column 1 up to 5m along the beam. Then another UDL 10kN/m runs from that point for 3 m up the column 2. On the grid distance between columns 1 and 2 and adjacent columns is 7 m. What distance of load along that beam do column 1 and 2 take respectively? Reaction Force at column 1 is 281 kN and column 2 is 149 kN. M I look for explanation (calcs would be welcome however). The beam is simply supported. Below is a simple diagram. Thanks a lot !
