Question ID: 750214
Could you please give me advice on how to determine the concavity of a
moment (x) curve on a shear-moment diagram.  I know the moment is the
integral of the shear (V(x)), but when it comes to integrating a
linear shear load, so that the there is a quadratic moment equation
between two points, I always just guess the concavity.

Is there any firm way to know this concavity?
