Unformatted text preview: c. For distributed loads, include ONLY THE PORTION OF THE DISTRIBUTED LOAD that is applied to the SECTION selected. d. Put the portion of the distributed load at its centroid as a concentrated load. The centroid is only for the portion of the distributed load that is applied to the selected section. 6. At the CUT END draw the N normal force (tension is positive) V shear force (direction of V should be to make the beam rotate CLOCKWISE about the UNCUT end) M bending moment (direction of M is draw to make the beam deflect upward – SMILE) 7. Apply the equilibrium equations to solve for N, V, and M, = ∑ x F = ∑ y F = ∑ end cut M remember to include “M”...
