Question: consider the buckling failure of the truss shown composed of...

Question details

Consider the buckling failure of the truss shown composed of solid circular members constrained to buckle in the plane of the truss. Determine (a) the load at failure (kN) and (b) identify the member that BCYbuckles first, AB or B C. And (e), determine th e minimum diameter of the other compression member (mm). Assume E 150 GPa, DiaAB 14mm, DiaBC = 18 mm LABX 3.6 m, LBCX = 4.6 m and LBCY =4.1 m. LABX Lacx
