## Homework Statement

Folks,

I am having difficulty deriving the moment expressions for a rigidly supported beam fixed at either ends and subjected to a point load. I have two attachments, one for the expressions given in Shigleys and the other for my attempted derivation.

The problem is that I want to derive the left hand fixing moment [itex]M_1[/itex] and [itex]M_{ab}[/itex] as in Shigleys. However, I believe my attempts are not leading to these expressions.

Is anyone good at these indeterminate derivations?

Thanks
