Unformatted text preview: MEEN 221 Summer 2009  Worksheet 8 Dr. A. Palazzolo (1) HWSS (Due: Tues. 30.1mm): Ch 7 (7, 9, 16, 43, 59, 68) (2) Attendance Mandatory for 10:00 am — 12:45 pm, unless excused by instructor.
Multiple Quizzes may be given anytime during this period. (3) Today’s Material: Truss Force Analysis By Joints and Sections, Sections 7.1 — 7.4 Analysis of Trusses for Member Forces and Support Reaction‘Forces . Trusses are load bearing structures which are composed of an
assemblage of two force “members” connected by “joints”. Assumptions used in truss analyses are: ' "—" ' a) members are connected only at their ends b) members are connected only by frictionless pins
0) truss structure is loaded only at joints (1) weight of members are neglected Note that the loads in the truss members may .all be solved for only if:
M = 2j  3 p
m = number of members a (1)
j = number of joints ‘ A FBDwis made for each joint to solve for the member loads. Therefore

no external load or support reaction is applied to the joint,
then the members must be zeroforce members.
When three membertruss joint for which two of the
members are collinear and the third forms an angle with the
‘ﬁrst two, then the noncollinear member is a zeroforce
member provided no external force or support reaction is
applied to that ioint. The two collinear members carry equal
loads (either both tension or both compression). 0C . _ (b) 72.4 Example of a truss mummembers. 714* Determine the forces in
