Problem 2.4-14 A rigid bar ABCD is pinned at point B and supported by springs at A and D (see figure). The springs at A and D have stiffnesses k 1 5 10 kN/m and k 2 5 25 kN/m, respectively, and the dimensions a , b , and c are 250 mm, 500 mm, and 200 mm, respectively. A load P acts at point C . If the angle of rotation of the bar due to the action of the load P is limited to 3°, what is the maximum permissible load P max ?
