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: i46.tinypic.com/2d7zpw.jpg 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.
