Calculating reaction forces in a beam with a discontinuous distributed load
Click here to see more videos: https://alugha.com/CalvinRans This is an example problem video made for a First Year Aerospace Engineering course on Statics. It examines how to solve for two forces supporting a beam with a discontinuous distributed load. In the solution method, I show how distributed loads can be broken up into multiple distributed loads.
