Here is the deal. I need a beam to hold (2) 12.5 kip loads, 35 feet apart, with supports 5 feet outside each load. Force diagram is, x=0 at left, up force 12.5 kip at x=0, 12.5 kip down at x=5, 12.5 kip down at x=40, 12.5 kip up at x=45. The 12.5 kip loads are including a factor of safety of 2 built in (estimated load is actually about 6 kip at each point)
It has been too long since I did bending moment calculations, so I want some back up on what size I-beam I need. Thanks for any help.
