1 Exam 1 AEM 2011, Spring 2008 February 20, 2008 Name--------------------------- ID-------------------- Section------ Problem 1: The jib crane shown is oriented so that its boom AD is parallel to the x axis and is used to move a heavy crate. Knowing that the tension in cable AB is 10 kN , replace the force exerted by the cable at B with an equivalent force-couple system at the center O of the base of the crane.

The spring attached to the collar has a spring constant k and is undeformed when the collar is directly below support B. Express in terms of k and the distance c the magnitude of the force P required to maintain equilibrium of the system.

Note that the robot arm OAB lies in the x-y plane. (a) Express F c and M c in rectangular components. i.e., F c = F cx i ) + F cy j ) + F cz k ) M c = M cx i ) + M cy j ) + M cz k ) (b) Replace F c and M c with an equivalent force-couple system at O. (c) Repeat (b) for point B . 6 AEM 2011, Spring 2008 February 20, 2008 Name--------------------------- ID-------------------- Section------7 AEM 2011, Spring 2008 February 20, 2008 Name--------------------------- ID-------------------- Section------...
