Force in two dimennsional frames

  1. Jan 17, 2009 #1
    the pin-jointed frame is 60/30 degrees triangle with suport points at the vertical wall being 0.45m apart and the lower frame member being horizantal. if the hanging load is 6kg . culculate the foeces in two frame members and also the reactions at the wall supports.

    tariqb: Did you draw a free-body diagram showing the reactions at the two wall supports yet? Do you know any equations you could use to solve this problem? Do you think there is a vertical reaction at the lower wall support?
