# Why is the bending moment characteristic in the oblique bar different to my hand calculation? Normally there should be no bending moments.

The reason for the occurrence of a bending moment in the oblique and straight bar is that the middle post has a certain flexibility due to its finite rigidity. Thus, compression takes place at the middle support, so that the deformation of the middle support also affects the right-hand latch. Because the right-hand latch is additionally held on a movable support, a forced moment arises at this point.
