Exercise: Shear Force & Bending Moment Diagrams

Course subject(s) 4. Bending Moment in Beams

Please solve the below exercise to practice your skills in determining shear and bending moment diagrams.


For the beam shown below, calculate the shear force (V) and bending moment (BM) diagrams for the beam. Determine the position and magnitude of the maximum shear force and bending moment. The solution is shown in the next post.
