The bridge shown in Figure P-449 consists of two end sections, each weighing 20 tons with center of gravity at G, hinged to a uniform center span weighing 12 tons. Compute the reactions at A, B, E, and F.
A beam carrying the loads shown in Figure P-448 is composed of three segments. It is supported by four vertical reactions and joined by two frictionless hinges. Determine the values of the reactions.
