Problem 8.2. Method of Sections for Truss Analysis The roof truss supports the loading shown. Determine the force in the members BC , CK , and KJ and state if these members are in tension or compression. Figure P8.2: Problem 8.2
Problem 8.3 Determine the force in each member of the truss and state if the members are in tension or compression. Given: P 1 = 4 kN, P 2 = 4 kN; a = 3 m; θ = 30 . FCB = 8 [kN] (T) FCD = 6.9282 [kN] (C) FDE = 6.9282 [kN] (C) FDB = 4 [kN] (T) FBE = 4 [kN] (C) FBA = 12 [kN] (T)

Unformatted text preview: The Howe bridge truss is subjected to the loading shown. Determine the force in members HI , HB , and BC , and state if the members are in tension or compression. Figure P8.4: Problem 8.4 FBC = 50 [kN] (T) FHI = 35 [kN] (C) FHB = 21.2 [kN] (C) Problem 8.5 Determine the force in each member of the space truss and state if the members are in tension or compression. The truss is supported by a ball-and-socket joints at A , B , and E . Given: F = [Fx, Fy, 0]; Fx = -200; Fy = 400; [N] a = 2; b = 1.5; c = 5; d = 1; e = 2; [m] Figure P 8.5: Problem 8.5 Results: FAC = 221 [N] (T) FBC = 148 [N] (T) FEC = 295 [N] (C)...
