Here you all civil and structural engineers are invited to go through and download for analysis of two span continuous beam with overhang by moment distribution method. Shear force diagram(SFD) and bending moment diagram (BMD) has been drawn. Two method, loading diagram and conventional method has been used for drawing BMD with greater ease. Also, every steps has been explained fully to understand whole concept.
Here you will find a very interesting example on two span continuous beam by moment distribution method. Both spans are symmetrically loaded.
In many buildings frames, this example will help you to solve many continuous beam manually .However, five pages have used to solve this problem, but it can be solved in a single page. I have elaborated to make concept clear.

Here i have uploaded a solved example on moment distribution method. This is the third series on moment distribution.I request all readers to read series-(I) & series-(II) on same subject to clarify basic concept as i have started series-1 &2 with two span only. In this example, i have solved a 3-span continuous beam in which first span is uniformly loaded, second span is point loaded and third span is loaded with triangular loading. By going through this example, you will be able to solve 3-span continuous indeterminate beam effortlessly.

Download here an attached example solved for two span continuous beam by moment distribution method. In this example, a two span continuous beam in which one span is with uniformly distributed load and another span is loaded by a point load at center. In this example, far end is fixed.
In this example, i have tried to detailed out analysis of a continuous beam with moment distribution calculating BMD and SFD and i have cleared concept on carry over moment and balancing moment with giving some special notes.
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.
