in the figure. Assuming that no couples act as loads on the beam,
determine the forces acting on the beam and draw the bendingmoment diagram. 652 lb 580 lb 572 lb 500 lb V

FORCE DIAGRAM Problem 4.5-34 The compound beam below has an internal
moment release just to the left of B and a shear release just to
the right of C. Reactions have been computed at A, C and D
and are shown in the figure.
First, confirm the reaction expressions using statics, then
plot shear (V) and moment (M) diagrams. Label all critical
V and M values and also the distance to points where either
V and/or M is zero. w0 L2
