The billboard BC weighing 1000 lb is subjected to a wind pressure of 300 lb/ft as shown in Figure P-450. Neglecting the weights of the support-members, determine the component of the hinge forces at A and F.
The bridge shown in Figure P-449 consists of two end sections, each weighing 20 tons with center of gravity at G, hinged to a uniform center span weighing 12 tons. Compute the reactions at A, B, E, and F.
For the continuous beam shown in Fig. P-853, determine the moment over the supports. Also draw the shear diagram and compute the maximum positive bending moment. (Hint: Take advantage of symmetry.)
