The beam shown below is simply supported at its ends A and E. It carries a load that is uniformly distributed over part of the beam together with two concentrated loads: (See attached file for full problem description with diagram)

Using convenient scales, construct the Shear Force and Bending Moment diagrams for the beam and determine:

(a) The magnitude and direction of the maximum shear force.
(b) The magnitude and direction of the maximum bending moment

Please show workings for all answers and using correct signs show diagrams with answers ie. +/-.
