Calculation Example - Calculate the Axial Forces of the Truss Members.

Written by  TheStructuralEngineer.info

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

 

Solution

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

example 

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