Question: 4 rigid beam abc is supported by rods 1 and...

Question details

4. Rigid beam ABC is supported by rods (1) and (2) that are initially L - 6.8 m long. Rod (1) is made of steel [E 200 GPa] and has a cross-sectional area of 170 mm2. Rod (2) is made of aluminum [E-70 GPa] and has a cross- sectional area of 280 mm. Assume dimensions of a = 1.75 m and b = 3.5 m. If the uniformly distributed load w- 14 kN/m, what is the deflection of the rigid beam at point B?
