- TL;DR Summary
- Bending cantilevered beam when subject to offset transverse force

Hello

Please see attached - trying to figure shear force and bending moment at reaction point R, with a horizontal force applied at top of Z. This is a veranda deck with balustrade.

If F was vertical, then straightforward with SF = F and M = FX. But when F is horizontal as shown, I'm having some difficulty and can't work out the SF or BM diagrams. Perhaps M at R is FZ?

I'd appreciate anything to point me in the right direction to find SF and M at R.

Thanks for your time.
