Question 1

Three vertical forces and one horizontal force are applied to the pin-jointed truss as shown in
Figure 1.

Marks
3 (a) Determine the support reactions at pin O and roller P.

7 (b) Find the forces in members FH, FG, DG and EG. Indicate if the members are in tension or
compression.

Question 2

An ice sculpture for a holiday party is in Crate A and its pedestal is in Crate B. Both crates are
painted blue. Crate A and its contents weigh 20 kN, located at the centroid of the crate. Crate B
and its contents weigh 30 kN, located at the centroid of the crate. The coefficient of static
friction between Crate A and Crate B is µ! = 0.3. The coefficient of static friction between
Crate B and the ground is µ" = 0.1. A very strong spring with unstretched length of 1.5 m and a
spring constant of k N/mm is used to keep Crate B from moving while workers are attempting
to position Crate A atop B by pulling with force P in the direction shown in Figure 2.

Using appropriate Free Body Diagrams:

Marks
7 (a) Determine the smallest force P required to cause movement in Crate A. Clearly indicate
whether Crate A moves by sliding or tipping.

3 (b) Determine the smallest magnitude for the spring constant k (in N/mm) that is required so
that Crate B does not move while Crate A is moved.

Question 3

Beam AEBC in Figure 3 is supported by cable DE, a pin connection at A and a roller at C. An
internal hinge (i.e. pin) is also provided at B. Loading is shown in the figure.
Marks:
3 a) Draw the required Free Body Diagram(s) (FBD) for analysis, and determine the support
reactions at A, D and C. Provide the magnitude and the direction of each reaction force.

3.5 b) Using the axis provided on the following page, draw the Shear Force Diagram (SFD) for the
entire length of beam AEBC. Label the maximum and minimum values and their locations
measured from A.

3.5 c) Using the axis provided on the following page, draw the Bending Moment Diagram (BMD)
for the entire length of beam AEBC. Label the maximum and minimum values and their
locations measured from A.

Question 4

The cross-section geometry of an aluminum machine part is shown in Figure 4, with all
dimensions given in mm.

Marks:
4 a) Determine the (x, y) coordinates of the centroid of the cross-section.

6 b) Determine the Moment of Inertia of the cross-section about a horizontal axis drawn through
the centroid.
