Question: a simple pinconnected truss is loaded and supported as shown...

Question details

A simple pin-connected truss is loaded and supported as shown in the figure. All members of the truss are aluminum pipes that have an outside diameter of 4.25 in. and a wall thickness of 0.213 in. Determine the normal stress in each truss member. Assume P = 5 kips, Q = 4 kips, & = 6 rt, b = 9 rt, and h = 8 r. The stresses are positive ir tensile and negative ir compressive. Answers:
