# Continuous Beam - Two Span with Point Load Over One Span at Any PointMore Beams

Beam Calculator Input Units:
 Between Supports, L: Point of interest, a: Load on Beam, P: Youngs Modulus, E: Moment of Inertia, I:
 Resultant, R1 = V1: Resultant, R2: Resultant, R3 = V3: Shear at R2, V2: Max. Moment, Mmax: Moment at R2, M1:
 Remember: 1m = 1000mm ; 1N/mm = 1000N/m ; 1Nm = 1000Nmm 1ft = 12in ; 1lbf.ft = 12lbf.in ; 12lbf/ft = 1lbf/in

The above beam force calculator is based on the provided equations and does not account for all mathematical and beam theory limitations. The calculator has been provided with educational purposes in mind and should be used accordingly. Unit conversion

# Notation and Units

## Metric and Imperial Units

The above beam design formulas may be used with both imperial and metric units. As with all calculations care must be taken to keep consistent units throughout with examples of units which should be adopted listed below:

# Notation

• FBD = free body diagram
• SFD = shear force diagram
• BMD = bending moment diagram

• a & b= distance to point load, in or m
• L = span length under consideration, in or m
• M = maximum bending moment, lbf.in or kNm
• P = total concentrated load, lbf or kN
• R = reaction load at bearing point, lbf or kN
• V = maximum shear force, lbf or kN
