Influence Lines for Trusses

For the Pratt truss shown below, draw the influence diagram for members JK, DK, and DE.



Problem 001-mm | Method of Members

Problem 001-mm
The structure shown in Fig F-001(MM) is pinned together at points A, B, and C and held in equilibrium by the cable CD. A load of 12,000 lb is acting at the midpoint of member AB, and a load of 8000 lb is applied at point C. Determine the reaction at A, the internal force in member BC, and the tension on cable CD.

Structure with cable and three-force member


Problem 001-mj | Method of Joints

Find the force acting in all members of the truss shown in Figure T-01.



Analysis of Structures

There are many kinds of structure. This section will limit to those that are pin-connected. Two types of pin-connected structures will be covered here; pin-connected trusses and pin-connected frames. In the actual structure, the joints may be welded, riveted, or bolted to a gusset plate at the joint. However as long as the center-line of the member coincide at the joint, the assumption of a pinned joint maybe used.

Problem 309 | Equilibrium of Concurrent Force System

Problem 309
A cylinder weighing 400 lb is held against a smooth incline by means of the weightless rod AB in Fig. P-309. Determine the forces P and N exerted on the cylinder by the rod and the incline.

Problem 308 | Equilibrium of Concurrent Force System

Problem 308
The cable and boom shown in Fig. P-308 support a load of 600 lb. Determine the tensile force T in the cable and the compressive for C in the boom.

255 Equivalent loads to a compression member with eccentric load

Problem 255
A short compression member carries an eccentric load P = 200 lb situated 2 in. from the axis of the member, as shown in Fig. P-225. In strength of materials it is learned that the internal stresses are determined from the equivalent axial load and couple into which P may be resolved. Determine the equivalent axial load and couple.
