1) Using the method of moment distribution determine the bending moments at
each support after completing 4 iterations. The self-weight of the structure may
2) Draw a neat sketch of the final bending moment diagram. Annotate the diagram
with key values.
3) Calculate the support reactions.
Fixed End Moment data are available on the next page.
