T310-Simply Supported Beam with an Overhanging Load

This page provides formula for beam shear, moment and deflection formula for a simply supported beam with an overhanging load.

Nomenclature:
F = Loading force
R = Reaction force
V = Shear force
M = Moment
l = beam length
a = Distance from support to overhanging loading force
x = location
E = Modulus of elasticity
I = Moment if Inertia
y = deflection

Relationships:
————–
R1 = -F * a / l
R2 = F / l * (l + a)
VAB = -F * a / l
VBC = F
MAB = -F * a * x / l
MBC = F * (x – l – a)
yAB = (F * a * x)/(6 * E * I * l) * (l^2 – x^2)
yBC = (F * (x – l))/(6 * E * I) * ((x – l)^2 – a * (3 * x -l))
yC = -(F * a^2)/(3 * E * I) * (l + a)
