Solution

Vertical component of 4 kN at C, = 4 × sin 45o = 2.828 kN ( ↓ )

 Horizontal component of 4 kN at C, = 4 × cos 45o = 2.828 kN ( → )

Vertical component of 3 kN at D, = 3 × sin 60o = 2.598 kN ( ↓ )

Horizontal component of 3 kN at D, = 3 × cos 60o = 1.5 kN ( ← )

Taking moments around B,

RB  × 10 - 5 × 7.5 - 2.598 × 6 - 2.828 × 2 = 0

RB  = 5.8744 kN

RA  = 2.828 + 2.598 + 5 - RB  = 10.426 - 5.8744

RA  = 4.5516 kN

Shear Force (Beginning from the Left End A)

SF at A, FA  =+ 4.5516 kN

SF just left of C, FC  =+ 4.5516 kN

SF just right of C, FC  =+ 4.5516 - 2.828 =+ 1.7236 kN

SF just left of D, FD  =+ 1.7236 kN

SF just right of D, FD  = + 1.7236 - 2.598 = - 0.7844 kN

SF just left of E, FE  =- 0.8744 kN

SF just right of E, FE  =- 0.8744 - 5 =- 5.8447 kN = Reaction at B.

Bending Moment (Beginning from the Right End B)

BM at A and B,          MA = MB = 0

 BM at E, M E  = + (5.8744 × 2.5) = + 14.686 kN-m

BM at D, M D  = + 5.8744 × 4 - 5 × 1.5 = + 15.9976 kN-m

BM at C, M C  = + (4.5516 × 2) = + 9.1032 kN-m  (considering left side)

Maximum Bending Moment

It shall occur at D where SF changes sign.

Thus, M max  = + 15.9976 kN-m

Thrust Diagram

 Let us find out the horizontal reaction at A (being a hinged end).

∑ H = 0

+ H A - 2.828 + 1.5 = 0

∴          H A = 1.328 kN

The section AC is subjected to 1.328 kN (tensile force).

The section CD is subjected to 1.5 kN (compressive force).

∴          (2.828 - 1.328 = 1.5)
