## Bending moment and shear force diagram of a cantilever beam

In this article Learn :cantilever beam Bending moment diagram B.M.D. and shear force diagram S.F.D. of a cantilever beam having point load at the end,several point loads,U.D.L. Over Whole Span ,U.D.L. not over the whole span,U.D.L. from support to some distance,U.D.L. Somewhere on the beam,Combination of Point Loads and U.D.L. BENDING MOMENT AND SHEAR FORCE DIAGRAMS OF A CANTILEVER BEAM A shear force diagram is the graphical representation of the variation of shear force along the length of the beam and is abbreviated as S.F.D. A bending moment diagram is the graphical representation of the variation of he bending moment along the length of the beam and is abbreviated as B.M.D. We will take different cases of beams and loading for plotting S.F. D and B.M.D. Cantilever : Point Load at the End (Fig. 3.8) At section x from the end A, Fx = - W1 and is constant for…
