Theory of Structure: Area-Moment Method

Applying the Area Moment Method:

  • Determine the deflection at B and C, indicate its direction (↑/↓).
  • Determine the slope at B and E, indicate its direction. If it is counter clockwise or clockwise
  • Express your response in terms of EI.


shear and moment diagram


A. determine Wo
B. Draw the shear and moment diagrams and specify the numerical values at all change of loading positions & at all points of zero shear.
C. determine the maximum shear and maximum moment.
