Calculation Example - Calculate the Axial Forces on the Truss Members

Written by  TheStructuralEngineer.info

Find the axial forces of the members 2-3, 3-9 of the truss for the given external loads.

 

Solution

From the equilibrium of the forces on the truss we have:

jan-20-3

jan-20-4

jan-20-5

We consider the cross section T so as to calculate the axial forces on members 2-3 and 9-3. We consider the equilibrium of moments to the node 9.

jan-20-2

jan-20-6

 

From the equilibrium of forces at Y direction

jan-20-7
