- 1. Graphical Method (Maxwell’s Diagram) The graphical analysis was developed by force polygons drawn to scale for each joint, and then the forces in each member were measured from one of these force polygons. In order to draw the Maxwell diagram directly, here are the simple guidelines: •Solve the reactions at the supports by solving the equations of equilibrium for the entire truss, •Move clockwise around the outside of the truss; draw the force polygon to scale for the entire truss, •Take each joint in turn (one-by-one), then draw a force polygon by treating successively joints acted upon by only two unknown forces, •Measure the magnitude of the force in each member from the diagram, •Lastly, note that work proceed from one end of the truss to another, as this use for checking of balance and connect to other end.
