A simply supported beam has a span of 15m and is subjected to a 5 m long uniformly
distributed load of 40kN/m, traversing along the span from left to right. Draw influence
line diagram for shear force and bending moment at a section 6m from left en

influence diagrams to calculate the maximum shear force and maximum bending moment
at this section.
