Introduction
For the equilibrium of structures made of severalconnected parts, the
internal forces
as well the
external  forces
are considered.In the interaction between connected parts, Newton’s 3
rd
Law states that the
forces of action and reaction
between bodies in contact have the same magnitude,same line of action, and opposite sense.Three categories of engineering structures are considered:
a) Frames
: contain at least one one multi-forcemember, i.e., member acted upon by 3 or moreforces.
b) Trusses
: formed from
two-force members
, i.e.,straight members with end point connections
c) Machines
: structures containing moving partsdesigned to transmit and modify forces.
