1 UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA, BERKELEY Dept. of Civil and Environmental Engineering Spring Semester 2008 Instructor: Filip C. Filippou CE 121 – Advanced Structural Analysis Homework Set #3 (due Feb. 15, 2008) 1. Problem (5 points) 4 4 6 1 2 3 4 w = 10 w = 10 a b c d 1. Number the global degrees of freedom (dof) without including the trivial equations with a single unknown basic force whose value can therefore be determined by inspection. 2. Set up the equilibrium equations in terms of the element forces Q and the equivalent nodal forces due to the uniformly distributed element loading w = 10 units of force/unit of length. 3. Solve the equilibrium equations for the basic forces Q . 4. Determine the dependent element forces and draw the axial force, shear force, and bending moment diagrams. 5. Determine the support reactions and check global equilibrium. 6. Return to question #2 above and separate the equilibrium equations into two groups: those involving only end moments as basic forces and the axial force in the brace, and those that
