Take the first derivative of the moment equation, set it equal to zero, solve for "x", make sure "x" is indeed a global maximum (not just a local maximum or minimum). The inflection point would be determined from the second derivative of the moment equation...not needed for this calc. -----Original Message----- From: seaint-return(--nospam--at)seaint.org [mailto:seaint-return(--nospam--at)seaint.org]On Behalf Of Daley, John Sent: Tuesday, October 31, 2000 9:30 AM To: 'seaint(--nospam--at)seaint.org' Subject: RE: Sorry Mathcad question (delete if you don't want to read) I think you should write another equation to determine the point of inflection of the moment equation and then solve the moment equation at that point. -----Original Message----- From: Rodriguez, Marlou [mailto:mrodriguez(--nospam--at)BiggsCardosa.com] Sent: Tuesday, October 31, 2000 11:32 AM To: 'SEAINT Newslist' Subject: Sorry Mathcad question (delete if you don't want to read) Sorry this is a mathcad question, I am trying to find the maximum moment on a beam with several loads. I have writen a function to plot the moment diagram, My question is, How do I extract the maximum moment out of my moment function. Thanks to all the mathcad masters ************************************************************* Marlou B. Rodriguez Biggs Cardossa Associates Inc.
