Moment Distribution Calculator for Indeterminate beam of two spans

Left span having point load and right span having a partial udl starting from intermediate support.

Note: Enter the values of Moments of Inertia of both the spans in the same units. If I1 is equal to twice of I2, you can enter I1=2 and I2=1. Similarly the Modulus of Elaticity for both the spans should be in the same units. If E1 is equal to twice of E2, you can enter E1=2 and E2=1

You can visit instructions for Moment Distribution Calculator if you need more help and guidance on sign convention adopted.

Please refer to the figure and enter the required values in the form given below and then click "Calculate". The results obtained will be helpful in developing shear force and bending moment diagrams.
