Executive Summary
A three bar space truss is subjected to a load applied through a cable going over an ideal
pulley and attached to a weight. The coordinates of the pulley (in feet) are (24, -20, 0).
Executive Summary
1. Looking at a simply supported beam with an axial load and a point load, find the
maximum displacements using both first order and second order analysis.
First Order:
wl^3/48EI
Sec
Executive Summary
Use SAP to determine the maximum displacement and maximum moment of this beam,
which has a traverse load, applied at the center of the beam and an axial load applied at
the end. Use
Executive Summary
1) Determine the location of the centroid and shear center for the section shown using the
standard thin-walled approximation.
X_bar = 162.5mm
Y_bar = 260mm
e = -84.4mm
2) Use the cr
