UNIVERSITY OF TORONTO Department of Civil Engineering CIV101F S TRUCTURES , M ATERIALS AND D ESIGN (S ECTION E) Problem Set # 5 Assigned: 10-12-2006 Due: 10-18-2006, 10:10 a.m. 1. Two steel pipes AB and BC, each having a mass per unit length of 8 kg/m, are welded together at B and supported by three wires. Knowing that a – 0.4 m, determine the tension in each wire. 2. The table shown has a mass of 15.3 kg and a diameter of 1200 mm. It is supported by three legs equally spaced around the edge. A vertical load P of magnitude 500 N is applied to the top of the table at D.

Unformatted text preview: Determine the maximum value of “a” if the table is not to tip over. Show, on a sketch, the are of the table over which P can act without tipping the table. **Please turn over for problems 3 and 4** 3. A 3 m boom is acted upon by the 4 kN force shown. Determine the tension in each cable and the reaction at the ball-and-socket joint at A. 4. The rigid L-shaped member ABF is supported by a ball-and-socket joint at A and by three cables. For the loading shown, determine the tension in each cable and the reaction at A....
