Having determined the equivalent loads, we can proceed to determine the bending moments in our statically indeterminate beam, as for any continuous beam. As mentioned earlier, we use the formulas for continuous beams given in standard textbooks. One such formula follows.

Continuous Beam with Two Equal Spans and Uniform Load on Both Spans

Continuous Beam with Two Equal Spans and Uniform Load on Both Spans

In our case, w = Wp = 1.225 kip-ft, l = L = 54 ft. Therefore,

WpL2 1.225 x 542

Renewable Energy 101

Renewable energy is energy that is generated from sunlight, rain, tides, geothermal heat and wind. These sources are naturally and constantly replenished, which is why they are deemed as renewable. The usage of renewable energy sources is very important when considering the sustainability of the existing energy usage of the world. While there is currently an abundance of non-renewable energy sources, such as nuclear fuels, these energy sources are depleting. In addition to being a non-renewable supply, the non-renewable energy sources release emissions into the air, which has an adverse effect on the environment.
