Simple Beam - Two Point Loads Equally Spacedsb 9C

Two Point Loads Equally Spaced Formula

\(\large{ R = V   = P   }\)

\(\large{ M_{max} \; }\)  (between loads)  \(\large{ =  Pa   }\)

\(\large{ M_x \; }\)  when \(\large{ \left(  x < a \right)  =   Px   }\)

\(\large{ \Delta_{max} \; }\)  (at center)  \(\large{ =  \frac{ Px }{24 \lambda I}      \left(  3L^2  - 4a^2  \right)     }\)

\(\large{ \Delta_x \; }\)  when \(\large{ \left(  x < a \right)  =  \frac{ Px  }{6 \lambda I}      \left(  3La  - 3a^2 - x^2  \right)     }\)

\(\large{ \Delta_x  \; }\)  when  \(\large{ \left(  x > a \right)  \; }\)  and  \(\large{ <  \left(  L - a  \right) =  \frac{  Pa  }{6 \lambda I}      \left(  3La  - 3x^2 - a^2  \right)     }\)

Where:

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

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

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

\(\large{ R }\) = 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
