Problem 2.7-6 The truss ABC shown in the figure is subjected to a horizontal load P at joint B . The two bars are identical with cross- sectional area A and modulus of elasticity E . (a) Determine the strain energy U of the truss if the angle b 5 60°. (b) Determine the horizontal displacement d B of joint B by equating the strain energy of the truss to the work done by the load.
