3. Figure 3 shows a pin-ended structure consisting of a steel bar AC of Young's modulus
EAC 200 GPa and an aluminum bar BC of Young's modulus EBC 70 GPa . The
bars are connected by pins of 8 mm diameter at the junction C, and the supports A and
B along the horizontal ceiling. Both the bars AC and BC have the same length
L 3 m and the same square cross section 16 mm 16 mm . A point load P 50 kN is
applied vertically at C. Figure 3
