Step 1: Develop free body diagram (FBD) of the given structural member. To do so, you should (i) set up a coordinate system; (ii) set up sign conventions; and (iii) replace the reactions by unknown reaction forces. Step 2: Based on system static equilibrium equations ( 0 x F = ; 0 y F = ; 0 M = …); determine the reaction forces. Step 3: Based on the distribution of external loads, separate the whole structural member into several segments; Step 4: Assume a cross-section over one segment of the structural member. Generate the corresponding FBD. Based on this FBD, solving for the internal forces (P, V, M...) of the selected cross-section from the equilibrium equations ( 0 x F = ; 0 y F = ; 0 M = …). Step 5: Based on the results obtained from step 4, plot the internal force diagrams Step 6:
