Unformatted text preview: Since this is the truss that you are experimenting with in the truss lab, you can also compare the results of the experiments to the analysis. By assuming values for L, A and E (70 GPa for aluminum, 210 GPa for steel) estimate the relationship between applied load and the deflection of point D for the experimental truss and compare with your data. If the two results are not similar, suggest potential reasons for the discrepancy....
