## The concrete pier is subjected to soil pressure that causes the line loads shown. Determine the resultant of the loading and find the y-coordinate of the point where the resultant crosses the y-axis To determine

Resultant force and y -coordinate of the point where resultant crosses the y -axis.

### Explanation of Solution

Given Information:

The distributed load is shown in following figure

:

Calculation:

Consider the following figure,

The resultant of horizontal force is

:

Fx=( 8+4)×42=24 MNact at y=( 2×4+8)×43(4+8)=( 2×4+8)×43(4+8)=1.78 m

The resultant of vertical force is

:

Fy=6×2.52=7.5 MNact at x=23×2.5=1
