(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

I need help starting with this question.. I am very confused because the lecturer gave examples when its a canteleaver beam but not when it is in supported structure. I

For the given beam (Table 1, Figure 1):

• determine the number of degrees of freedom to which the

beam is indeterminate

• use Force Method of Analysis to determine the redundant

force(s)

• sketch the Free Body Diagram (FBD)

• construct the Shear Force Diagram (SFD) and the Bending

Moment Diagram (BMD)

• define dimensions for the cross section of the I-beam by

using the Main Strength Condition

• determine the deflection (or the slope) at a point A.

Take [ ] 160MPa; E 200 GPa; a 1m

2. Relevant equations

wont require yet as i just need help to set up the FBD

3. The attempt at a solution

I just needs step on how to set up using the Force method... Please view my attempt and comment if i am correct or wrong...
