Figure P-130 shows a roof truss and the detail of the riveted connection at joint B. Using allowable stresses of τ = 70 MPa and σb= 140 MPa, how many 19-mm-diameter rivets are required to fasten member BC to the gusset plate? Member BE? What is the largest average tensile or compressive stress in BC and BE?
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.
Determine the cross-sectional areas of members AG, BC, and CE for the truss shown in Fig. P-112. The stresses are not to exceed 20 ksi in tension and 14 ksi in compression. A reduced stress in compression is specified to reduce the danger of buckling.
For the truss shown in Fig. P-111, calculate the stresses in members CE, DE, and DF. The cross-sectional area of each member is 1.8 in2. Indicate tension (T) or compression (C).
Use the method of sections to determine the force in members DF, FG, and GI of the triangular Howe truss shown in Fig. P-428.
Determine the force in bars BD, CD, and DE of the nacelle truss shown in Fig. P-427.
Using the method of sections, compute the force in bars FH, GH, and EK.
In the Fink truss shown in Fig. P-425, the web members BC and EF are perpendicular to the inclined members at their midpoints. Use the method of sections to determine the force in members DF, DE, and CE.
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.
