Hi guys,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

For a Engineering Project, we will be suspending a bridge using a cantilever system. We have to draw the shear force diagram (SFD) and bending moment diagram (BMD) for the horizontal and vertical members. The arrows on the diagram represent the loading from the bridge itself.

I have no idea what the SFD or BMD should look like for the vertical member "A". I already know how to do the SFD BMD for the horizontal member, just do not know how to plot vertical member on the same set of axis as the horizontal member BC.
