The bridge truss shown in the figure is to be subjected by uniform load of 10 kN/m and a point load of 30 kN, both are moving across the bottom chord
Calculate the following:
1. The maximum axial load on member JK.
2. The maximum axial load on member BC.
3. The maximum compression force and maximum tension force on member CG.
Diagonals BG, CF, CH, and DG of the truss shown can resist tension only.
If W = 3 kN and P = 0, find the following:
1. the force in member CF.
2. the force in member BF.
3. the force in member DH.
Flexible cables BE and CD are used to brace the truss shown below.
1. Determine the load W to cause a compression force of 8.9 kN to member BD.
2. Which cable is in tension and what is the tensile reaction?
3. If W = 20 kN, what will be the tensile reaction of member CE?
