Analyse forces of bed

    Analyse forces of bed....


    As shown in my earlier post i need to analyse the forces of my bunk bed design

    I know how to analyse forces in 2d beams and trusses etc but my problem involves a bed supported on a wall by 2 slide rail mechanisms and 2 support legs as shown in the link. The user weight and bunk combined = 102kg. Please show me how to at least start my analyses.....

    The max load limits of the rail I am using are shown in this link http://www.misumi-europe.com/eucatal..._0293-0294.pdf

    Sum of the forces in the ?" "? direction equals zero.

    That is how you start.
