Is the moment in a continuous beam maximum when there is one point load because if you had multiple point loads they would cancel each other out since there are several pin connections along the beam?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

For example, if I had a 20 kip load moving across a continuous beam and found the maximum moment in the beam, and then decided to add a second 20 kip load moving a bit behind the first load, there would be less moment in the second scenario even though there is 40 kips total moving across the beam oppose to the original 20 kips?

Also can anyone explain what the purpose is in radius of gyration oppose to just moment of inertia?
