(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. How do you calculate the maximum moments in a 2-span continuous beam?

2 span beam with 2 different uniformly distributed loads (UDL) at different spans:

I am a first year civil engineering student. This is apparently a statically indeterminate structure with one redundancy so I can't solve the problem using equilibrium equations.

I have seen a method called Moment Distribution but the examples seem to be available for 3 spans or more. Is there any simple way to find maximum bending moment in the beam?

Thanks in advance.
