Extra Tutorial Questions
Bending Moment and Shear Force
Question 1
A cantilever beam spans 6 metres, and supports a
concentrated point load of 80 kN at 3 m from the
encastré support as shown in Figure 1.
Calculate the
maximum value of
bending moment
in the beam, and
state the position where this occurs.
Question 2
A simplysupported beam spans 6 metres, and supports
both a concentrated point load of 100 kN at its midspan
position and a uniformly distributed load of 25 kN/m
across its entire span as shown in Figure 2.
Calculate the
maximum
value of
shear force
present within the beam.
At which point does this maximum value occur?
Question 3
Figure 3 shows a simple cantilever beam structure subject to static loading.
Calculate the
reactions
at the support, and
the values of
shear force
and
bending
moment
at 1 m intervals along the beam
