members (W 8 * 21; E 30 * 106 psi) and subjected to triangularly
distributed loads of maximum intensity q0 acting along the vertical
members (see figure). 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
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.
