Sample text

In the preceding figure, the truss at the left is statically indeterminate to the first degree because there is one redundant reaction force: M = 5, R = 4, and M + R – 2N = 1. The truss in the middle is also statically indeterminate to the first degree because of one redundant member: M = 6, R = 3, and M + R – 2N = 1. The truss at the right is statically indeterminate to the second degree because M = 6, R = 4, and M + R – 2N = 2. 3 Method of Joints and Method of Sections The method of joints draws its name from the way a FBD is selected: at the joints of a truss.

B E H FEH 8m C A 8 kN D 6m FGJ G J FBD for top and bottom chord member forces. 49 Truss Analysis: Force Method—Part I Although there are four forces at the cut, two of them are on the same line. When moment center is selected at either node E or node G, these two forces will not appear in the equilibrium equation, leaving only one unknown in each equation. Σ ME = 0, (6)8 – (8)FGJ = 0 FGJ = 6 kN Σ MG = 0, (6)8 – (8)FEH = 0 FEH = –6 kN Alternatively, we may choose the right part as the FBD. The same results will follow but the computation is slightly more involved.

That would require the use of a computer. For the present example, and many other cases, an experienced structure engineer can solve a problem by hand calculation faster than using a computer. This hand-calculation process gives insight to the force flow from externally applied load, through members, and to the supports. This is the process that is presented herein. a. Find all reactions. Although not necessary, finding all reaction forces from the FBD of the whole structure first is often the fastest way of solving a plane truss problem.
