ENGR-1100 Introduction to Engineering Analysis

Lecture 16

Today Lecture Outline

• Structures:

• Trusses

• Frames

• Trusses analysis- method of joints

• Stability criteria.

• Trusses: Structures composed entirely of two force members.

Frames: Structures containing at least one member acted on by forces at three or more points.

### Two important structures types

Plane trusses: lie in a single plane.

Space trusses: not contained in a single plane and/or loaded out of the structure plane.

### Plane Trusses

Assumptions

1) Truss members are connected together at their ends only.

2) Truss members are connected together by frictionless pins.

3) The truss structure is loaded only at the joints.

4) The weight of the member may be neglected.

The Four Assumptions

Truss members are two-force members

F

F

Truss member

F

Compressive forces tend to shorten the member.

Tensile forces tend to elongate the member.

Straight Members

Forces act along the axis of the member

“Rigid” trusses

“Rigid”- the truss will retain its shape when removed from its support

Simple truss- constructed by attaching several triangles together.

Allows a simple way to check rigidity.

What are we looking for?

The support reaction .

The force in each member.

How many equations are available? How many unknowns?

Each joint- 2 equations

Unknowns- number of members+ support reaction.

Stability Criteria

m=2j-3

2j- number of equations to be solved.

m- number of members.

3- number of support reaction

m<2j-3

Truss unstable

m>2j-3

Statically indeterminate

m=2j-3

Example

m (Number of members) =

13

j (Number of joints) =

8

Number of supports=

3

Method of Joints

Separate free-body diagrams for:

each member

each pin

Equilibrium equations for each pin:

SF=0

no moment equation

Example 7-3

Use the method of joints to determine the force in each member of the truss shown in Fig. P7-3. State whether each member is in tension or compression.

Example 7-19

The truss shown in figure P7-19 support one side of a bridge; anidentical truss supportsthe other side. Floor beams carry vehicle loads to the truss joints. Calculate the forces inmembersBC, BG, andCGwhen a truck weighing 7500 lb is stopped in the middle of the bridge as shown. The center of gravity of the truck is midway between the frontand rear wheels.

Free body diagram on floor beams FH

Fy = 2FG - 2(3750) + 4(1125) = 0

FG= 1500 lb

Solution

From symmetry: FH = FF

MG = 2FF (10) – 3750 (6) = 0

FF = 1125 lb

f= tan-1 8/5 = 57.99

= tan-1 5/10 =26.57

= tan-1 8/10 =38.66

Fx = Ax = 0

Ax = 0

ME= Ay (30) -1125 (25) - 1500(15) - 1125(5) = 0

Ay = 1875 lb = 1875 lb

Free body diagram on joint A

Fx = TAB cos 57.99 + TAH = 0

Fy = TAB sin 57.99 + 1875= 0

TAB = - 2211 lb  2210 lb (c)

Free body diagram on joint H

Fy = TBH - 1125 = 0

TBH = 1125 lb = 1125 lb (T)

Free body diagram on joint B

Fx = TBC cos 26.57 + TBG cos 38.66

Fy = TBC cos 26.57 - TBG sin 38.66

+ 2211 sin 57.99 - 1125 = 0

TBC = -1451.2 lb  1451 lb (C)

Free body diagram on joint C

Fx = TCD cos 26.57+ 1451.2 cos 26.57 = 0

Fy = TCD sin 26.57 - TCG + 1451.2 sin 26.57 = 0

TCD = -1451.2 lb  1451 lb (C)
