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 #14 (due May 9, 2008) 1. Problem (2 points) For the structure in the figure, which is the same as the second problem of the last homework, set up the initial force vector 0 P for two separate load cases: (a) uniformly distributed element load of 5 units in element c, as shown in the figure (b) thermal curvature 3 0 2 10 κ = in the girder, i.e. in elements b and c. For this question assume that the flexural stiffness of the girder is 50,000 g EI = units. 4 4 6 1 3 2 4 EI EA EI w=5 EI a b c c g g

Unformatted text preview: EI=100,000 units. The brace element d has axial stiffness EA = 30,000 units. Use the displacement method of analysis to answer the following questions, even though the force method would involve less equations: 1. Identify the independent free global dofs. 2. Determine the coefficients of the stiffness matrix for the structure (it should be a 4x4 matrix). 3. Solve for the global dof displacements under the given uniformly distributed element load. 4. Determine the basic forces and draw the bending moment diagram. 5. Determine the maximum and minimum moment in element c. 6. Draw the deformed shape of the structure under the given loading. 7. Determine the support reactions and check global equilibrium. 8 8 6 a b c d 1 2 3 4 w=5...

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
