## Figure 1: Beam Diagram for Problem 1

Solution:
a) First resolve the loads to simple point loads on the main beam.
Distributed load: equivalent load = 100 lb/ft 2.5 ft = 250 lb. Point of action is geometric center
(mid-point), which is 1.25 ft from end.
Point load on bar: Assume L-shaped bar is rigid and transfers load to main bar (2.5 ft from left
end). This also applies a couple equivalent to 500 lb 0.5 ft = 250 ft.lb. The following free body
diagram can now be drawn.

Problem 2
For the beam shown in Figure 2:
a) Determine the reactions at A and B.
b) Draw the Shear Force Diagram.
c) Draw the Bending Moment Diagram

## Figure 2: Beam Diagram for Problem 2

Solution:
a) First determine equivalent load and where it acts for distributed load. Equivalent load is the area
under the curve.

a) Determine the area of the cross-section.
b) Determine the location of the centroid.
c) Determine the moment of inertia about its centroidal axis x'.
d) Determine the maximum stress due to bending at the critical point if this cross-section is used for
the beam in Problem 2.
