__:-A structural member which is acted upon by a system of external loads at right angles to its axis is known as beam.__

**Beam**BEAM |

__It is a type of weight put on the beam which causes the beam to deflect or bend in shape.__

**LOADING:-**LOADING |

__:-There are five types of beams as under:-__

**TYPES OF BEAMS** 1.

__:-A cantilever beam is one whose one end is fixed and the other end carries a point or concentrated load.__**Cantilever Beam** 2.

__:-A simply supported beam is one which carries two reaction forces at its two ends & a point load at its mid-point.__**Simply Supported Beam** 3.

__:-It is a type of simply supported beam which overhangs from its supports.An overhanging beam may overhang on one side only or on both sides of the supports.__**Overhanging Beam** 4.

__:-It is a type of beam in which both ends are fixed and carries a point load at its centre.__**Rigidly Fixed Or Built-In-Beam** 5.

__:-It is a type of overhanging beam which consists of a numerous reaction forces and point loads.__**Continuous Beam**__:-A beam may be subjected to either or in combination of the following types of loads:-__

**TYPES OF LOADINGS** 1.

__:-It is a type of load which acts at the centre of the beam as shown below:-__**Concentrated Or Point Load** 2.

__:-It is a type of load which is distributed uniformly over the entire length of the beam.__**Uniformly Distributed Load** 3.

__:-These are the loads varying uniformly from zero to a particular value and spread over a certain length of the beam.Such load is also called triangular load.__**Uniformly Varying Load**
