Find the stresses in members BC, BD, and CF for the truss shown in Fig. P-113. Indicate the tension or compression. The cross sectional area of each member is 1600 mm2.
The truss are joined as shown in Figure P-447 to form a three-hinged arch. Determine the horizontal and vertical components of the hinge force at B and then determine the type and magnitude of force in bars BD and BE.
A three-hinged arch is composed of two trusses hinged together at D in Figure P-446. Compute the components of the reaction at A and find the forces acting in bars AB and AC.
The frame shown in Figure P-443 is hinged to rigid supports at A and E. Find the components of the hinge forces A and E and the forces in members BC and BD.
The center diagonals of the truss in Figure P-438 can support tension only. Compute the force in each center diagonal and the force in BC, DE, and FG.
The center panel of the truss in Figure P-437 contains two flexible cables. What load P will cause a compressive force of 20 kN in BD? Then determine which tension diagonal BE or CD is acting and the force in it.
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.
For the transmission tower shown in Fig. P-435, determine the force in member CJ.
Compute the force in bars GI, GH, EH, and HI for the scissors truss shown in Fig. P-433.
Compute the forces in bars AB, AC, DF, and DE of the scissors truss shown in Fig. P433.
