*Response due to Point Load*

Response due to multiple point loads = equal to the algebraic sum of the product of load and the corresponding ordinate of ILD.

Illustrative Example: Consider A simply supported beam (figure 1) having a span of 7 m.

Similarly the reaction at B due to 5 kN load would be equal to (5) x (value of ordinate at 5 m from the ILD for

Reaction at support B due to both the loads = 10 x (2/7) + 5 x (5/7)

= 20/7 + 25/7 = 45/7 kN = 6.43 kN

*Response due to Uniform Load*

Response due to uniform load is equal to the intensity of load multiplied by the area of ILD under the load.

Consider a beam of span 5m shown in figure 2 and loaded with a 3 m long uniform load of intensity 7 kN/m as shown.

The value of reaction at B due to this uniform load =

(intensity of uniform load) x (area of ILD between C and D).

area of ILD between C and D = area of trapezium

=0.5(ordinate at C+ordinate at D) x (length of uniform load)

= 0.5 (2/7 + 5/7) (3) = 0.5 (7/7) (3) = 1.5

therefore, Reaction at B = (7) (1.5) = 10.5 kN
