The distance between supports is L 20 ft and the height of the frame is h 4 ft. The members are rigidly connected at B and C. A D h E B C q0 q0 E L (a) Calculate the intensity of load q0 required to produce a maximum bending moment of 80 k-in. in the horizontal member of BC. (b) If the load q0 is reduced to one-half of the value calculated in part (a), what is the maximum bending moment in member BC? What is the ratio of this moment to the moment of 80 k-in. in part (a)? Section E-E Solution 11.5-13 Frame with triangular loads (a) LOAD q0 TO PRODUCE M max 80 k-in. Substitute numerical values into Eq. (1). Units: pounds and inches PL2 M max 80,000 lb-in.
