MAE 261A ENERGY AND VARIATIONAL PRINCIPLES IN STRUCTURAL MECHANICS FALL 2004 Homework Assignment No. 5 Due Wednesday, November 24, 2004. Problem 1 Use the method of virtual displacements to compute the force in bar EG in the truss in Figure 1. Hint: consider coupled motions of joints B and G that involve no length change of any bar except EG . Figure 1: Truss from Problem 1. Problem 2 Compute the tip displacement of a cantilever beam under a triangular load as shown in Figure 2 using a. the method of virtual forces b. the method of virtual displacements
