Description: The study presents a direct method for obtaining symbolic solutions for continuous beams. The external applied concentrated forces, distributed forces and moment couples are represented by step/singular functions. The integration of the governing differential equation and the solution of the boundary and support conditions are performed using Mathematica. The output of the code produces closed-form symbolic solutions for the beam deflection and its derivatives, as well as all support reactions and moments. Several examples are presented to illustrate the capability of the proposed procedure. [PUBLICATION ABSTRACT]
