To find reactions for asymmetrical beams:

•  Draw an abstract beam diagram to illustrate computations
•  Use Σ M = 0 at one support to find reaction at other support
•  Verify results for vertical equilibrium

1 Floor framing
2  Abstract beam diagram

Support reactions:

Alternate method (use uniform load directly)

1  Simple beam with point loads

2  Beam with overhang and point loads 

3  Beam with uniform load and point load (wall)
