fixed-end moment

Fixed-end moments of fully restrained beam

Summary for the value of end moments and deflection of perfectly restrained beam carrying various loadings. Note that for values of EIy, y is positive downward.
 

Case 1: Concentrated load anywhere on the span of fully restrained beam

$M_A = -\dfrac{Pab^2}{L^2}$

$M_B = -\dfrac{Pa^2b}{L^2}$
 

Value of EIy
$\text{Midspan } EI\,y = \dfrac{Pb^2}{48}(3L - 4b)$

Note: only for b > a
