Homework Help: Frame Analysis Using Method of Members, Another Problem

  1. Sep 6, 2009 #1
    Frame Analysis Using Method of Members.

    Determine the force in bar BE.

    2. Well, I don't know where to start. I know there are three equations EFy=0, EFx=0, EMc=0 but I don't know what the first member to consider and how to solve this type of problem.

    There is a final answer given, BE = 2410 lb (Compression)
    I am trying to isolate the left and right trusses. Is that the right thing to do?
    Please help, Thanks!
