The frame shown in Fig. P-348 is supported in pivots at A and B. Each member weighs 5 kN/m. Compute the horizontal reaction at A and the horizontal and vertical components of the reaction at B.
A boom AB is supported in a horizontal position by a hinge A and a cable which runs from C over a small pulley at D as shown in Fig. P-346. Compute the tension T in the cable and the horizontal and vertical components of the reaction at A. Neglect the size of the pulley at D.
A homogeneous bar with a cross sectional area of 500 mm2 is attached to rigid supports. It carries the axial loads P1 = 25 kN and P2 = 50 kN, applied as shown in Fig. P-244. Determine the stress in segment BC. (Hint: Use the results of Prob. 243, and compute the reactions caused by P1 and P2 acting separately. Then use the principle of superposition to compute the reactions when both loads are applied.)
A homogeneous rod of constant cross section is attached to unyielding supports. It carries an axial load P applied as shown in Fig. P-243. Prove that the reactions are given by R1 = Pb/L and R2 = Pa/L.
