  § 3.3  Particle equilibrium in 3-D Static equilibrium requires: R  =  Σ   F  = ( Σ  F xi)  +  ( Σ  F yi)  + ( Σ  F zi)  k  =  0 or . .. Σ  F xi  = 0 Σ  F yi  = 0 Σ  F zi  = 0 Procedure:  Draw FBD(s), apply equations of equilibrium .

Example 2 (PGC, Problem 3.61)  :  Member  OA  buckles when the compressive force it  supports reaches 400 N.  Cables  AC  and  AD  each have 300 N breaking strength.  Assuming  the cabling between  A  and  B  is sufficiently strong, determine the force  T  that will cause the  structure to fail. Assume the pulleys are frictionless with diameters that are small enough so  that all cables between  A  and  B  are parallel to line  AB .
