Prob. 1: Using the method of joints, determine the force in each member of the truss shown. State whether each member is in tension or compression.
Prob. 2: Determine the force in each member of the loaded truss shown in Figure (a) and (b).
(a) (b) Prob. 3: Calculate the forces in members BC, BE and EF. Solve for each force from an equilibrium equation which contains that force as the only unknown.
Prob. 4: The members CJ and CF of the loaded truss cross but are not connected to the members BI and DG. Compute the forces in members BC, CJ, CI and HI.
Prob. 5: For the given loading, determine the zero‐force members in the truss shown in Figure (c) & (d).
(c) (d) Prob.6: Determine the force in members IK and HK of the truss shown. (Hint: Use section aa ). Also determine the force in members FI and EG of the truss shown. (Hint: Use section bb ).
