How to Find Reaction Forces for a Cantilever Beam?

Please login with a confirmed email address before reporting spam

Hello everyone,

I am working on modeling the mechanical behaviour of a cantilever under a uniform distributed load and I built the model attached for this. I have gone through many tutorials and watched several videos however I couldn;t figure out how to find the reaction forces applied by the two support points on the cantilever beam. Can you please help me with this? I tried to describe the problem in the picture attached.

Thanks a lot in advance.
