Hi Sir,

Good day to all!

I tried to solve this problem using MDSolids application.

The application gave same results when the hinge support is on the right and the roller is on the left. In the second situation where the location of support is reversed, the application gave same result except for member AC which is 224 against your 32 on the solution. I tried to manually check and it also gave 224 as the answer. I dont know where i did wrong...can someone confirm what is the correct answer..

Thank you very much.
