Homework Help: Machanics: Where to section?

  1. Mar 13, 2007 #1
    I'm about to draw shear and moment diagram in 2D, and I wonder if there are any general rules as where to section for instance this ski?

    I guess it depends on you want, but in this case there will be 4 moment equations (sections).
