Problem 436 - Howe Truss With Counter Braces Jhun Vert Sun, 04/19/2020 - 05:58 pm

Problem 436
In Figure P-420, assume that counter diagonals act from B to E and from E to F in addition to the counter diagonals CD and DG shown in the figure. Assuming that these counter diagonals can support tension only, determine which diagonals are acting and the force in each.
