distributed load of 10 kN/m over left half of the span. In addition,
there is a point load of 15kN at 4m from left end. Obtain the
reactions, Shear Force at 2m and Bending Moment at 4.5m from
end of the beam usin

A three hinged parabolic arch of span 18m and 3m central rise
carries a uniformly distributed load of 10 kN/m over the left half
of the span. Calculate the normal thrust and shear force at 4.5m
support. Also, calculate the maximum positive and
negative bending moment.
A parabolic arch hinged at the ends has a span 25m and rise 4m.
A concentrated load of 15kN acts at 10m from the left hinge. The
second moment of area varies as the sec

axis. Calculate the horizontal thrust and the reactions at the
hinges. Also, calculate the maximum bending moment anywhere
on the arch.
The three hinged stiffening girder of a suspension bridge of 90m
span is subjected
to two point loads of 10 kN each placed at 20m
and 35m respectively from the left hand hinge. Determine the
shear force and bending moment in the girder at a section 30m
from left end. Also, determine the maximum tension in the cable
which has a centra
l dip of 9m.
A suspension cable, stiffened with a three hinged girder, has 90m
span and 9m dip. The girder carries a load of 1 kN/m. A live load
of 15 kN rolls from left to right. Determine the maximum

also the maximum
tension in the cable.
