## Method of Joints | Analysis of Simple Trusses

**Method of Joints**

The free-body diagram of any joint is a concurrent force system in which the summation of moment will be of no help. Recall that only two equilibrium equations can be written

$\Sigma F_x = 0$ and $\Sigma F_y = 0$

## Analysis of Structures

There are many kinds of structure. This section will limit to those that are pin-connected. Two types of pin-connected structures will be covered here; *pin-connected trusses* and *pin-connected frames*. In the actual structure, the joints may be welded, riveted, or bolted to a gusset plate at the joint. However as long as the center-line of the member coincide at the joint, the assumption of a pinned joint maybe used.
