Problem 11.4-7 The horizontal beam ABC shown in the figure is supported by column BD and CE . The beam is prevented from moving horizontally by the pin support at end A . Each column is pinned at its upper end to the beam, but at the lower ends, support D is a guided support and support E is pinned. Both columns are solid steel bars ( ) of square cross section with width equal to 0.625 in. A load Q acts at distance a from column BD .

Problem 11.4-8 The roof beams of a warehouse are supported by pipe columns (see figure on the next page) having outer diameter and inner diameter . The columns have length , modulus , and fixed supports at the base. Calculate the critical load P cr of one of the columns using the following assumptions: (1) the upper end is pinned and the beam prevents horizontal displacement; (2) the upper end is fixed against rotation and the beam prevents horizontal displacement; (3) the upper end is pinned but the beam is free to move horizontally; and (4) the upper end is fixed against rotation but the beam is free to move horizontally.
