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 #12 (due April 25, 2008) 1. Problem (10 points) The truss structure in the figure is subjected to two load cases: (a) a horizontal force of 50 units with a concurrent vertical force of 30 units as shown, and (b) a thermal loading consisting of a temperature change of 100 degrees that affects only element c. The coefficient of thermal expansion is 5 2 10 α = per unit of temperature change. The truss elements have the following properties: elements a and b has axial section stiffness EA=10,000 units, while elements c and d have axial section stiffness EA=20,000 units. Use the displacement method of analysis for each load case separately to determine 1. The displacements (translations) at the free dofs of the structural model 2. The basic forces in all truss elements 3. The support reactions; use the support reactions to check global equilibrium. What happens to the basic forces of the truss elements if the section stiffness EA is doubled for all elements? What happens to the global dof displacements in this case? 50 30 a b c 8 8 6 d

### 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.
