Statement of a problem № 10074


A beam supports three loads of given magnitude and a fourth load whose magnitude is a function of position. If b = 1.5 m and the loads are to be replaced with a single equivalent force, determine (a) The value of a so that the distance from support A to the line of action of the equivalent force is maximum, (b) The magnitude of the equivalent force and its point of application on the beam.
