Unformatted text preview: Procedures for Analysis
Steps for determining support reactions include:
1) Draw FBD for the rigid body, assuming a direction
for each unknown support reaction.
2) Apply ΣM =0 at a point in which two of the unknown
forces pass through, & solve for the remaining
unknown.
3) Use eqns. ΣFX = 0 or ΣFY = 0 to solve for the
remaining unknown support forces.
4) If the solution for an unknown force is negative,
then the actual sense of direction is opposite from
the assumed direction. Example #1: Determine the support reactions for the beam shown. Example #2: Determine the reactions at A & the cable tension force. Example #3: Determine the reactions for the roller at A & hinge at B. ...
