1 Application Example: Thermal Analysis of a Three-Bar Truss ± A 1 =A 3 =1.0 in 2 , A 2 =2.0 in 2 . ± E=1.E+7 psi, k=70 lb/s/ ° F ± Heat flux of Q=100.0 lb/s/in. applied to node 4 through an area of 1.0 in 2 . ± Temperature of the upper three nodes kept at 25 ° F. ± Reference temperature=20 ° F. (The structure was mounted at this temperature, then loaded thermally.) Q 3 2 1 10 in. 10 in. 10 in. ± Thermal analysis : Compute the temperature of the lower node. ± Static analysis : Compute the displacement of the lower node and the bar stresses under the thermal loading and an additional force of 20,000 lb applied to the lower node.
