Presentation Transcript

### ENGI 1313 Mechanics I

Lecture 28: Method of Joints

Lecture 28 Objective

- to understand the method of joints for establishing forces in truss members

Method of Joints

- Joint Equilibrium
- FBD at a joint
- Particle equilibrium concepts
- Solve for member forces

Method of Joints (cont.)

- Joint Forces
- Tension pulls on joint
- + convention

- Compression pushes on joint
- - convention

- Newton’s 3rd Law
- T pull on member
- C push on member

- Tension pulls on joint

Method of Joints Equilibrium Equations

- Two-Force Member
- Coplanar and concurrent force system
- What does this mean?

Automatically Satisfied

Necessary for Equilibrium

Procedure for Method of Joints

- Find Support Reactions
- Typically required but not always necessary

- Draw FBD at Truss Joint
- Select joint with 1 known force and at most 2 unknowns
- Assume forces are tensile (positive scalar) unless obvious by inspection

- Apply Equations of Equilibrium
- Repeat for all Joints

Example 28-01

- Determine the force in each member. Indicate whether the member is in tension (T) or compression (C).

Example 28-01 (cont.)

- Joint B

Example 28-01 (cont.)

- Joint C

Example 28-01 (cont.)

- Joint A

Example 28-01 (cont.)

- Support Reactions
- More than 2 unknowns at each joint then determine reactions first
- For this case not necessary but to show equivalence

Ax

Ay

Cy

Example 28-01 (cont.)

- Results Summary
