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 0 210 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
