Question: the pratt roof trusses have a deck roofing material and...

Question details

The Pratt roof trusses have a deck, roofing material and purlins with an average weight of 10 plf. The building is located in NY with an average snowfall that results in 200plf. Determine the global - y nodal loads on the truss then find the force in members GC and CD. Neglect the selfweight of the truss members and assume the truss is pinned at A and has a roller at E.

Part 2 Prep for Quiz 2 Material: Design of Beams vs Truss Members 10) The Pratt roof trusses have a deck, roofing aterial and purlins with an average weight of 10 plf. The buliding is located in NY with an average snowfall that results in 200 plf. Determine the global-y nodal loads on the truss then find the force in members GC and CD. Neglect the selfweight of the truss members and assume the truss is pinned at A and has a roller at E 6ft 6ft Once youve determined the nodal loads in the global-y direction by hand and sketched them on a FBD of the truss, you can choose to use hand calculation or VA to determine the force in members GC and CD.
