CALCS BAS018
SIMPLY SUPPORTED BEAM WITH POINT FORCES

NOTATION

POINTid, force
Pyiforce, applied magnitude (0 for reactions)
xposition coordinate vector
SFforce, shear
Mmoment

APPLICATION

any s.s or cantilever beam and loading config.

THEORY

simple beam theory

GUIDANCE

Caution with input value of Pyi of reaction forces.
Cantilever beams may be simulated by setting up lines 1 & 2 as Rl & Rr respectively with unit displacement xr-xl between.
Moments may be applied as couple forces with some appropriate small seperation between.
