Question
Dear sir,
If a steel beam is supported by a column at one end and in the span has perpendicular steel beams meeting it at some distances and also at the end. then is this beam cantilever? please why and how?

Answer
Dear Sufiyan

If the 2 beams have one column each as a moment resisting connection support then they are cantilevers supported on eachother. But for modelling them you can suppose them a beam simply supported on the one end and moment resisting connected to their column on the other end.
