I have a simple wall mount I want to analyze using hand calculations (pure beam bending if possible) that looks like this:
I want to be able to model it as if it was in a state of pure bending with a point load at the very end of the single bar section. The two bar section is fixed to the wall. However, I'm a bit confused with how to treat the "pin" (for lack of a better word) that connects the two sections together. Obviously, it's purpose is to transfer load to the two bars mounted to the wall, but I'm not sure if it would be a poor assumption to assume 50% of the load is transferred to each bar, and that the only force transferred through the pin is a straight downwards force and a moment.
I know it's probably a pretty basic/simple problem, but I was hoping someone could provide some insight on how I could deal with the pin and the two bars using hand calculation. Thanks!
