PROBLEMS relating to built‐in or rigid‐end members under transverse loading are frequently encountered by the aircraft engineer. In the following paper discussion of relevant theorems leads to the development of Clapeyron's Theorem of Three Moments. The latter is particularly valuable in, for example, estimating the crankshaft bearing loads in a non‐radial engine. Attention is also drawn to Wilson's method of solving continuous beam problems. This simple method produces results identical with those given by the Theorem of Three Moments and deserves wider recognition.
