cb3s 5ATwo Span Continuous Beam - Equal Spans, Two Equal Concentrated Loads Symmetrically Placed Formula

\(\large{ R_1 = V_1 = R_3 = V_3   = \frac{5P}{16}    }\)

\(\large{ R_2 = 2V_2  = \frac{11P}{8}    }\)

\(\large{ V_2 = P - R_1   = \frac{11P}{16}    }\)

\(\large{ V_{max}   = V_2   }\)

\(\large{ M_1  = \frac{3PL}{16}    }\)

\(\large{ M_2  = \frac{5PL}{32}    }\)

\(\large{ M_x  \;   \left( x < \frac{L}{2}  \right)   =  R_1 x    }\)

 

Where:

\(\large{ I }\) = moment of inertia

\(\large{ L }\) = span length of the bending member

\(\large{ M }\) = maximum bending moment

\(\large{ P }\) = total concentrated load

\(\large{ R }\) = reaction load at bearing point

\(\large{ V }\) = shear force

\(\large{ w }\) = load per unit length

\(\large{ W }\) = total load from a uniform distribution

\(\large{ x }\) = horizontal distance from reaction to point on beam

\(\large{ \lambda  }\)   (Greek symbol lambda) = modulus of elasticity

\(\large{ \Delta }\) = deflection or deformation
