Influence Lines for Trusses

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



Problem 005-mm | Method of Members

Problem 005-cb
For the cabled structure in Fig. 005(FR-CB), member ABC which is assumed to be rigid is pinned at A and held in equilibrium by cable CD. For this structure, determine the reaction at A and the tension in the cable.



Problem 004-mm | Method of Members

Problem 004-mm
For the structure shown in Fig. FR-004(MM), members AD, DC, and ABC are assumed to be solid rigid members; member ED is a cable. For this structure, determine the reaction at A, the tension on cable ED, and the force in member DC.

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.

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 347 | Equilibrium of Non-Concurrent Force System

Problem 347
Repeat Problem 346 if the cable pulls the boom AB into a position at which it is inclined at 30° above the horizontal. The loads remain vertical.

Problem 346 | Equilibrium of Non-Concurrent Force System

Problem 346
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.

Problem 308 | Equilibrium of Concurrent Force System

Engineering Mechanics: Cable and Boom Structure - Equilibrium of Concurrent Forces

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.
