According to the American Institute of Steel Construction, for a Simple Beam Concentrated Load at any Point as shown below: <Figure>.

The stress and moment diagram look as follow according to this source: <Figure>.

An additional resource for finding generalized shear and moment diagrams for common cases is Roarke's Book of Stress and Strain.

Solve for the Reactions:

An alternate method is to first solve for the reactions. This is done by summing the moment ...
