Hi all,

I just wanted to get some clarification on 'resultant moment' when calculated in 2D for a beam which is fixed at one end (point A), and has a load applied at the opposite end (point B). My interpretation of 'resultant moment' would be calculated as sum(M) = Ma + FL, where Ma is the reaction moment at the fixed end of the beam, F is the external force applied and L is the perpendicular distance between the applied load and point A. So in my understanding, the resultant moment about point A would simply be -FL, or the opposite of the sum of moments about point A.

Is this is a correct assumption?

Thanks!
