(a) A trail location of the instantaneous center is chosen as r o =80 mm At ultimate limit state, at bolts 1 & 4, R 1 =R 4 =74 kips, and their corresponding deformation is 0.34 inches.

From the load-deformation curve, it is estimated the force for bolts 2 & 3 is 68 kips The vertical components of these bolt forces are: At bolts 1 & 3, 7 . 37 74 157 80 1 1 , 1 = = = R r r R o v kips At bolt 2, 2 . 59 68 87 . 0 8 . 91 80 2 , 3 , 2 = × = = = R R R v v kips Then 8 . 193 2 2 . 59 2 7 . 37 1 , = × + × = = = m n v n R P kips Check: ( ) ( ) 0 1 = × + = m n n n o R r r e P ( ) 5682 2 68 8 . 91 2 74 157 80 75 8 . 193 = × × × × + kip- mm.
