Three-Hinged Arch - Continuous Load

Three-Hinged Arche - Continuous load - Reaction Forces and MomentBending Moment

Mm = (q L2 / 8) (4 (xm / L - (xm / L)2) - ym / yc)                               (1a)

where

Mm = moment at m (Nm, lbf ft)

q = continuous load (N/m, lbf/ft)

xm = x-coordinate for m (m, ft)

ym = y-coordinate for m (m, ft)

yc = y-coordinate for center hinge (m, ft)

L = horizontal distance between the supports (m, ft)

Cartesian coordinates related to a center located in the hinge of support no. 1.
