Problem 266 | Resultant of Non-Concurrent Force System

Problem 266
Determine the resultant of the three forces acting on the dam shown in Fig. P-266 and locate its intersection with the base AB. For good design, this intersection should occur within the middle third of the base. Does it?

Gravity Dam


Solution 266



Why did we multiply 6000 by sin(60)?

B'coz the horizontal component of force F(6000) has an angle 60 degree along y axis facing with the horizontal.. :)
