Homework Statement


The attached pdf shows the whole problem. I have a deadline of Wednesday for this and am absolutely stuck!


Homework Equations


N/A


The Attempt at a Solution



I have figured out parts a, b, and d. I was wondering whether anyone can help or point me in the right direction with regards to parts c and e.

for part c, I think that it isn't too complicated but I just don't know what to do with the eccentric connections.

ANY HELP WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED!

The eccentric connections won't change the member axial forces much. For chord bending, you can assume a pinned pinned beam 6 m long with a force equal to the perpendicular component of the diagonal member force, applied 25 mm from one end.

Thanks for that PhanthomJay, I was thinking along those lines, just needed someone to back me up. Will give it a proper go now!
