Page 1 M9 Truss Deflections and Statically Indeterminate Trusses TRUSS DEFLECTION EXAMPLE Calculate deflection of loading point E in pin-jointed truss shown below. Bars are at 90 ° or 45 ° to each other. All bars have cross sectional area A, Young's modulus E. No temperature change occurs. Draw FBD Â F y ↑= 0 V A - P = 0 V A = P (1) Æ Â F x = 0: H A + H B = 0 H A =- H B (2) M A = 0: H B L - 2 LP = 0 Â H B = 2 P H A =- 2 P
