SECTION 4.5 Shear-Force and Bending-Moment Diagrams 369 Problem 4.5-21 The two beams below are loaded the same and have the same support conditions. However, the location of internal axial, shear and moment releases is different for each beam (see figures). Which beam has the larger maximum moment? First, find support reactions, then plot axial force (N), shear (V) and moment (M) diagrams for both beams. Label all critical N, V & M values and also the distance (a) L 2 L 2 L 4 L 4 B PL Moment release PL A C D A y A x M Az C y P 4 3 Shear release
