# EXAMPLE ON ANALYSIS OF 2-SPAN CONTINUOUS BEAM BY MOMENT DISTRIBUTION METHOD(MDM) – SERIES(I)

Feel the structure” MSA

Here you all Civil & Structural Engineers are invited to go through this basic example solved to clarify concepts on moment distribution methods.Everybody knows the importance of moment distribution method and how it is helpful to solve indeterminate continuous beams and frames.Here i am taking you some step ahead to analyse indeterminate beams and frame by creating interest on this vital subject.In near future,i am coming with several series on this topic having best examples to clear concepts.Going through all this series, you will prefer to analyse continuous beams and frame manually rather than with software like STAAD, ANSYS etc. As it is not a verbal / visual lecture, that’s why i have walked you through in details to foster this incredible subject. But keep in mind, when you will develop concept and principle of MDM by practicing examples, then i assure you, it will help you to solve simple frame and continuous beams in very faster and easier way. Please see the previous of the said example from below.

Sometimes it looks weird or you can say incredibly weird that how these examples are going to help as most of the concepts are available in books.But i would say to my readers that i have developed some tricky parts on this  which are very helpful to understand overall  concept of MDM without having visual lecture. Readers might be wandering here and there to foster concept of MDM by following some books but now i assure them all to go through this and upcoming series to develop tremendous subject of indeterminate frames & beams.I invite you all to be connected with up coming series.

This is the first series on moment distribution with a simple example of two span continuous beam in which one end is hinged and other end is fixed.With this example, i have tried to explained to form table for moment distribution and once you are able to understand this table, then other associated part will be much easier for you. Also, i have solved in detail for the formation of BMD & SFD in non conventional method and it is quite easy to understand.
