Equations for Indeterminate Continious Beam of 3 Spans

Equations for Indeterminate Continious Beam of 3 Spans

Hey everyone,
I am looking for refferences to solved equations interms of different loads and span lengths for continious beams with 3 spans. I see that my 13th edition of the AISC table 3-23 has 3 different uniform load cases, that gives coeficents. I need something like this, but for a transient uniform load of Length (L), and a transient point load (P). Is there any solved diagrams for these statically indeterminate continious beams. Looking for max deflection, and max moment as a function of span length, and load type & location.

That's what I was looking for, but in english language and US units thumbsup2. From what I could decipher from the language barrier, appears my load case isn't in the tables, bummer sadeyes. Guess I'll have to model it with software. Thanks anyways.

RE: Equations for Indeterminate Continious Beam of 3 Spans

What about reviewing the solutions to specific conditions in the AISC steel design manual? You could then put then into some spreadsheets.

ETA: and don't forget that you can combine cases (assuming the structure response is linear)
