Chapter 6 – Lecture 19


Structural analysis

STRUCTURAL ANALYSIS

The main objective of chapter 6 is to use the equilibrium equations to analyze structures which are composed of pin-connected members.

C

  • This is a simple structure composed of three pin-connected members AB, BC and AC.

  • It is assumed that as long as the structure is in equilibrium, then all members are in equilibrium.

  • Forces at the joints (A, B, and C) can be found by applying equilibrium equations at different parts of the structure.

Simple Trusses

Joint B

Members are joined together by bolting or welding to a common plate (called guset plate)


Planar trusses

Planar Trusses

Planar trusses lie in one plane ( i.e x-y plane). Forces acting on the joints and they lie in the same plane as the truss. That is why this type of trusses is considered as a two-dimensional truss.


Assumptions for design

Assumptions for Design

To design a truss, it is necessary to find the force that will develop in each member at certain loading conditions. To do that, the following two assumptions are made:

  • All loadings are applied at the joints

  • Weight of members is neglected

  • If weight is to be considered, then it has to be divided equally at both ends

  • The members are joined together by smooth pins

  • If welding or bolting to a common plate was used, then the center lines of connecting members must be concurrent

Compression

Tension

Assumptions for Design

  • Each truss member acts as a two-force member

  • If the force tends to elongate the member, then it is a tensile force (T)

  • If the force tends to shorten the member, then it is a compressive force (C)

Simple Truss

Simple truss is constructed by starting with a basic triangular element such as the ABC truss below.
