Review of Basic Concepts in Statics 1. Preliminaries Ordered set (coordinate) representation where the unit vector directions implied Position Vector: r xi yj zk   ,, x y z r i j k Dot Product: Given Cartesian vectors written as the dot product is defined as     1 2 3 1 2 3 , , and , , F F F F u u u u  W = W = cos F u F u  Cross Product:   sin yx M r F r F n M F x F y k   x y F r F y F x (2-D) Often the direction of rotation is known, a priori and vectors are implied, but not shown; i.e. , M F x F y  Couple - The moment of the planar force system { F , - F } about ‘O’: F -F r a O   PP M r F r a F M a F C      Couples are free vectors that can be translated onto any point on a body without changing direction.

9. Trusses – Equilibrium 10. Equilibrium at a Point in Member Solution Techniques: Method of Joints and Method of Sections A B Implicit Approach: Sum of the internal member forces at a point equals sum of the external forces ( F ) at that point. P A – P B = F F P A P A P B P B Explicit Approach: P B + F – P A = 0 (Joint Equilibrium) FBD A FBD B
