Question: 1 beam ab is supported as shown in the below...

Question details

1. Beam AB is supported as shown in the below figure. Tie rod (1) has a diameter of 1.5 in. and is attached at B and C with 0.75 in. diameter double- shear pin connections. The pin connection at A consists of a 1.0 in. diameter single-shear pin. The pins at A, B, and C each have an ultimate shear strength of 52 ksi, and tie rod (1) has a yield strength of 36 ksi. A uniformly distributed load ofw = 2.000 lb/ft is applied to the beam as shown. Assume a 12 ft. b-15 in, and c-8 ft. Determine: a. The factor of safety for tie rod (1). b. The factor of safety for the double shear pins at B and C c. The factor of safety for the single shear pin at A
