Calculating reactions and maximum moment continuous steel

Customer Question

Calculating reactions and maximum moment for a continuous steel beam - 3 unequal spans, Uniform distributed load

Hello.

Expert:  StructuralEng replied 11 months ago.

I can help. Are you an engineer?

Expert:  StructuralEng replied 11 months ago.

It's not a simple solution because it's an indeterminate system.

Expert:  StructuralEng replied 11 months ago.

I have easy access to tables with equal spans, but the unequal spans I've never seen. I could develop these for you (as an additional service), but it will take a couple days to get through it and make sure it's all correct with the calculus.

I am an engineer (retired). I can provide you with the length between supports & uniform load.

Can we not do it online? Why did I get a response that my e-mail address had already been used. It is the only one I have.
Expert:  StructuralEng replied 11 months ago.

I don't know about the email. I don't have anything to do with that.

If you give me the loading and spans I will give you these reactions and moments (positive and negative)
