8.53 through 8.57 Draw the influence lines for the forces in the members identified by an “×” of the trusses shown in Figs. P8.53–P8.57. Live loads are transmitted to the top chords of the trusses.

FIG. P8.57

Chapter 8, Problem 57P, 8.53 through 8.57 Draw the influence lines for the forces in the members identified by an  of the

To determine

Draw the influence lines for the force in member AD, BD, and CD.

Explanation of Solution

Calculation:

Find the support reactions.

Apply 1 k moving load from C to F in the top chord member.

Draw the free body diagram of the member as in Figure 1.

Find the reaction at A and B when 1 k load placed from C to F. (0x48ft).

Apply moment equilibrium at A.

Consider clockwise moment as positive and anticlockwise moment as negative.

ΣMA=01(16x)=By(16)16By=x16By=x161

Apply vertical equilibrium.

ΣFy=0Ay+By=1Ay+x161=1Ay=2x16

Influence line for the force in member AB.

The expressions for the member force FBC can be determined by passing an imaginary section aa through member FG, BG, and BC and then apply a moment equilibrium at G.

Draw the free body diagram of the section aa as shown in Figure 3.

Refer Figure 2.

Slope of line AE is 4 horizontal and 3 vertical.

Find the equation of member force AD.

Apply a 1 k load at C (x=0).

Consider the section CD

Apply moment equilibrium equation at E.

Consider clockwise moment as positive and anticlockwise moment as negative.

ΣME=0FAD(16)=0FAD=0

Apply a 1 k load at just right of C (0ftx48ft).

Consider the section left of line aa.

Apply moment equilibrium equation at E.

Consider clockwise moment as positive and anticlockwise moment as negative.

ΣME=0FAD(16)+Ay(16)=0FAD=Ay

Substitute 2x16 for Ay.

FAD=(2x16)=x162

Thus, the equation of force in the member AD,

FAD=0, x=0 (1)

FAD=x162, 0x48ft (2)

Find the force in member AD using the Equation (1) and (2) and then summarize the value in Table 1.

Sketch the influence line diagram for ordinate for the force in member AD using Table 1 as shown in Figure 3.

Influence line for the force in member CD.

Refer Figure 4.

Find the force in member CD.

Apply 1 k load just the left of D (0x16ft)

Consider the section DF.

Apply moment equilibrium equation at A.

Consider clockwise moment as positive and anticlockwise moment as negative.

ΣMA=0FCD(12)By(16)=012FCD=16ByFCD=43By

Substitute x161 for By
