2 Homework 4 Due next MONDAY!
3 Unit Loads Set the largest load to 1 unit and scale other loads accordingly. In this example, the magnitude of the external force applied at C is known to be 5/7ths of the magnitude of the external force applied at B. First: Sketch the structure FBD. Second: Calculate the reactions at the supports.

8 The complete solution:
9 Factor of Safety A factor of safety is a number that: reduces maximum allowable loads to values that guarantee a low failure rate is generally agreed to by  industry government professional societies In other words, we usually don’t want the structure to be loaded up to the very  limit of failure. Factors of safety vary depending on many factors. For example: buckle on a parachute harness:  15 wing of a cargo aircraft:  1.5 wing of a fighter aircraft: 1.2 air-to-air missile:  1.1
