Moment Distribution Calculator for Indeterminate beam of two spans

Left span having 2 point loads and right span having a UDL on full span.
continuous beam with point load and uniform load

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. All downward loads should be entered with negative sign. Distances a1 and a2 are measured from left-end support A.

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.
