Wind Load

Problem 322 | Equilibrium of Force System

Problem 322
The Fink truss shown in Fig. P-322 is supported by a roller at A and a hinge at B. The given loads are normal to the inclined member. Determine the reactions at A and B. Hint: Replace the loads by their resultant.

Problem 267 | Resultant of Non-Concurrent Force System

Problem 267
The Howe roof truss shown in Fig. P-267 carries the given loads. The wind loads are perpendicular to the inclined members. Determine the magnitude of the resultant, its inclination with the horizontal, and where it intersects AB.
