Solving for an unknown member of a frame

  1. Oct 28, 2011 #1

    Attached is a drawing of a frame. I have already solved for the reactions for the frame. I am now trying to isolate each member to continue the design process. I am having problems finding the reaction forces for "member B" on the attached drawing. Using the three equalibrium equations I still wind up with two uknowns in each equation. And I haven't found a way to find the reaction forces using substitution or simaltaneous equations. All the information should be on the drawing. If anything else is required please let me know. Any help is greatly appreciated.
