shear force calculator of a cantilever beam with UDL, UVL and point loads

(Strength of Materials – by Er. R.K. Rajput)

w1: Uniformly distributed load in N/m;

w2: Uniformly varying load in N/m;

W3: Point load in N;

x1: the perpendicular distance of the load w1;

x2: the perpendicular distance of the load w2;

Shear force of UDL: applied load*(the perpendicular distance of the applied load)

Shear force of UVL: The area of the applied load (0.5* base (distance of the applied load)* height (the maximum force acting))

Shear force of a point load: applied load

Note: the below mentioned formula is applicable only for loading conditions given in the diagram whereas the procedure can be followed for any sort of different loads applied.
