Problem 9.3b : 4-member truss

  • Force P = 6000 N
  • Angle = 30o
  • Angle = 40o
  • Angle = 55o
  • Length L1 = 4 m
  • Length L2 = 0.8 m

Solve for the support forces at joints A and B and the forces in all members using the method of joints. Also, indicate the type of force ( C = compression , T = tension , 0 = zero-force ) for each member force.

My solution
