The beam ABCD in question is 10m long with supports at A and C. At B there is a 50KN point load and another 20Kn point load at D. The is a uniform load between A and c of 30KN/m.
A is 8m from C, A is also 2m from b and d is 2m from c.
I need to find the max bending moment but i also need a step by step guide on how to work it out?
I roughly know it should be around 280.
The reactions at A and C are 152.5 and 157.5 respectively.
If possible could you show me how to calculate the distance from support A that the max bending moment would occur?
I also need the point of contraflexure and the postion relative to A as well?
The Attempt at a Solution
I have made numerous attempts but get know where near the answer i know it should be.
Thanks for the help.
