Problem 424 - Method of Joints Checked by Method of Sections

Problem 424
For the truss shown in Fig. P-424, determine the force in BF by the method of joints and then check this result using the method of sections. Hint: To apply the method of sections, first obtain the value of BE by inspection.



Problem 412 Right Triangular Truss by Method of Joints

Problem 412
Compute the force in each member of the truss shown in Fig. P-412. If the loads at B and D are shifted vertically downward to add to the loads at C and E, would there be any change in the reactions? Which members, if any, would undergo a change in internal force?
