#### Bending Moment & Shear Force Calculator for point load on simply supported beam

This calculator provides the result for bending moment and shear force at a distance "x" from the left support of a simply supported beam subjected to point load. It also calculates support reactions and maximum bending moment. In this case the maximum bending moment value is obtained at the position of point load. This calculator gives shear force values on both sides (left and right) of the section. Typical diagrams for Shear Force and Bending Moment are also shown. The bending moment diagram will be straigth line from A to C and then C to B.To get more about shear force and bending moment diagrams please refer to our solved examples.

Please refer to the figure and enter the values of load and distances in the form given below and then press "Calculate". All upward acting loads are taken as positive and downward as negative. All the distances should be measured with reference to the extreme left end of the beam. This calculator can also be used to find the ordinates of Influence line diagram for structures just by putting P=1 at different locations on the beam.
