Problem 9.3c : 7-member truss

  • Force P = 600 N
  • Force Q = 400 N
  • Angle = 60o
  • Length L = 4 m
  • Length H = 1.5 m

Determine the support forces at joints 1 and 5 and the forces in all 7 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
