The truss are joined as shown in Figure P-447 to form a three-hinged arch. Determine the horizontal and vertical components of the hinge force at B and then determine the type and magnitude of force in bars BD and BE.
A three-hinged arch is composed of two trusses hinged together at D in Figure P-446. Compute the components of the reaction at A and find the forces acting in bars AB and AC.
