Analysis of Determinate Trusses- Exercise 1

For the truss structure and loading shown, determine

  1. the support reactions,
  2. the internal forces in the six numbered members using the Method of Joints. Also identify whether a member is in tension or compression.

You can submit one answer at a time by leaving the remaining answer fields blank or you can submit all answers together. If you input a negative value for a member force, it will be interpreted to mean the member is in compression.

R1-x = N   R1-y = N   R8-y = N

F = N     F = N    F = N

F = N     F = N    F = N
