Structural analysis of a overhanging beam with UDL, UVL and point load
(Strength of Materials – Er. R.K. Rajput)
The above diagram represents a overhanging beam with a UDL, a UVL and a point load.
For the given loading conditions using the below calculator, one can find the shear force and the bending moment at each and every point of loading on the beam. In addition to this, one can also locate the point of contra-flexure where the bending moment is zero (0) on the beam.
Note: 1) the upward shear forces is considered as positive.
2) the downward shear forces is considered as negative.
3) the anticlockwise moments are positive.
4) the clockwise moments are negative.
