Unformatted text preview: EM 306 Statics TEST 2 Fall 2011 - Landis Name ___________________________________ EID ___________________________________ Unique Number __________________________ Instructions: Correctly drawn and labeled free body diagrams are required on any problems with equilibrium analyses. Show all of your work. Place a box around your final answers and include units. Problem 1. Determine the shear force and bending moment distributions throughout the beam. (20 points) Problem 2a. In the drawing below, the guide-rail CD is perpendicular to the plane ABC . Determine the coordinates of point D by adding the vectors OC and CD . Hint: Represent CD using its magnitude and direction. (10 points) Problem 2b. The uniform bar DF has known weight W . It is supported at F by a universal joint (all translations restricted but no rotations restricted). At D the bar is free to slide along the guide-rail such that translation along the rail is not restricted, but translations normal to the rail are restricted. translations normal to the rail are restricted....
