Question

CODE IN PYTHON:

Here is the classic case truss example.


/>

solve for the maximum Force on one of the members for the following case



Howe Truss

The upward forces at A can be calculated by taking a summation of the moments at E

Moment is distance * force

Moment at E = 0 = 40*4 + 20*8 + 20*12 + 30*16 - FA * 16

FA = 65 kN

Similarly FE = 45 kN

With this information we can do Sum of Forces in X and Y at each node to generate the matrix

Members (17): AJ, AI, AB, BI, BH, BC, CH, CD, DH, DG, DE, EG, EF, JI, IH, HG, GF

You will need 17 equations to solve for the forces in each of these members.

Solve this problem using a matrix solution and report the maximum compression member and value and the maximum tension member and value.
