Unformatted text preview: CE 383 STRUCTURAL ANALYSIS Fall Term, 2009 Due: January 11, 2010 Homework #4 1) Use the general stiffness method to analyze the frame structure shown in the figure. Assume members as axially rigid. 20 kN/m A 4 m 5m Use constant EI. 8 10 C 4 m D 2 m . B 2) Use the general stiffness method to analyze the truss structure shown in the figure. EA is the same for all members. 4 m A 3 m D 4 6 m 4 m B EA 2 3 100 kN 10 C 3) Support B of the two span continuous beam settles by an amount of 3 mm. Using the general stiffness method, form the structural stiffness matrix [K] & load vector [F] by using a) d.o.f only , b) d.o.f & 1 1 2 2 A EI (3 m) B EI (3 m) 3 mm C 1 3 Calculate the unknown displacements, support reactions & draw the bending moment diagram. Take EI=2E5 2. kN.m ...
