The document defines a truss as a rigid structure composed of two force members connected at joints. There are three types of trusses: perfect trusses which have just enough members to remain stable under loading, deficient trusses with too few members, and redundant trusses with excess members. The key assumptions in truss analysis are that members are pin jointed and carry only axial forces, and trusses are loaded at joints. Two common methods to analyze trusses are the method of joints, which determines member forces by analyzing joints individually, and the method of sections, which analyzes equilibrium across a cut through selected members. Several example problems demonstrate applying these analysis methods to various truss configurations.

Analysis of non sway frame portal frames by slopeand deflection method

The slope deflection method is a displacement method used to analyze statically indeterminate beams and frames. It involves solving for the slope and deflection of members at their joints, which are the basic unknowns. Equations are developed relating the fixed end moments, slopes, and relative deflections of each member. These equations are set up and solved to determine the bending moments in each member. The method is demonstrated through examples solving for the bending moments in non-sway and sway frames.

Chapter 3

The document discusses frames and trusses, which are structures consisting of bars, rods, angles, and channels pinned or fastened together to support loads and transmit them to supports. Trusses contain only two-force members that experience either tension or compression, while frames can contain multi-force members and experience transverse forces as well. Common truss configurations include pinned, gusset plate, and bolted or welded joints. Trusses are analyzed using methods of joints or sections to determine member forces.

engineering statics :equilibrium

This document provides an introduction to the concept of equilibrium in statics. It discusses how to isolate a mechanical system and draw a free body diagram showing all external forces acting on it. For equilibrium in two dimensions, the forces must sum to zero in both the x and y directions. In three dimensions, six equations are required - the forces and moments must sum to zero in the x, y, and z directions as well as around each axis. Examples are given of two-force and three-force members in equilibrium. The document also defines statically determinate and indeterminate bodies.

Solving statically determinate structures

This document discusses statically determinate and indeterminate structures. A statically determinate structure can be analyzed using equilibrium equations alone, while an indeterminate structure has more unknowns than equations. A structure is determinate if the number of reactions r equals 3 times the number of parts n, and indeterminate if r is greater than 3n. Examples are given of determinate and indeterminate structures. Indeterminate structures can be made determinate by removing redundant supports or adding hinges. The advantages of indeterminate structures are that they allow for lighter, more rigid designs with increased safety through redundancy.

Truss examples

1) The documents provide examples of solving for forces in truss members by using free body diagrams and equilibrium equations.
2) The solutions involve drawing FBDs of the trusses or sections of trusses, then writing the ΣF and ΣM equations and solving the systems of equations.
3) The determined forces are then identified as either tension or compression forces in the members.

Types of truss, substitute member

The document classifies and describes different types of trusses. Simple trusses are made of basic triangular elements connected by additional members. Compound trusses connect two or more simple trusses together using common joints or connecting members. Complex trusses cannot be classified as simple or compound; their equilibrium equations cannot be uncoupled. The document provides an example of analyzing a complex truss using the method of substitute members.

Structural analysis (method of sections)

The method of sections can be used to determine member forces in a truss. It involves cutting or sectioning the truss and applying equilibrium equations to the cut parts. For example, a truss can be cut through members to determine the forces in those members by drawing and analyzing the free-body diagram of each cut section. Either the method of joints or method of sections can be used to analyze trusses.

connections in steel structure

The document discusses different types of connections used in steel structures. It describes connections as structural elements that join members like beams and columns. The main types of connections discussed are riveted, bolted, and welded connections. Riveted connections use round steel bars called rivets with heads on both ends. Bolted connections fasten members together using bolts that can be loaded in tension, shear, or both. Welded connections primarily join members using welds, with groove welds being the most reliable. The document provides advantages and disadvantages of each type of connection and notes that connections allow the different steel members to function as a single composite unit.

Trusses The Method Of Sections

The document discusses different types of structures and methods for analyzing trusses. Trusses are structures made of straight members connected at joints. Two common methods for analyzing trusses are the method of joints and method of sections. The method of joints involves drawing force diagrams at each joint and applying equilibrium equations. The method of sections involves cutting a truss and analyzing one side of the cut section. Zero-force members, which carry no load, can be identified and removed to simplify analysis.

Connections

Trusses are structures composed of straight members connected at joints. They are used to support roofs and bridges. Trusses can only experience axial loads and moments are excluded. To determine the forces in each member, assumptions are made including that loads only act at end points. The internal forces are calculated using methods like the joints method where equilibrium is applied at each node. For example, in one truss problem the reactions were first calculated and then equilibrium was applied at each node to determine the tensions and compressions in each member.

Trusses

Trusses are structures composed of straight members connected at joints. They have three key characteristics: they only experience axial loads, loads are applied only at end points, and members are joined by pins. Trusses are used to support roofs and bridges. To analyze a truss, assumptions are made that loads act only at end points, member weight is ignored, and members experience only axial loads as either tension or compression. The method of joints and method of sections can be used to calculate the internal forces in each member and determine if each member experiences tension or compression.

Analysis of multi storey building frames subjected to gravity and seismic loa...

This document summarizes a study on the seismic response of reinforced concrete frames with varying numbers of bays and storeys. Three frame configurations - 3 bay, 5 bay, and 7 bay with 9 stories each - were modeled and analyzed under gravity and seismic loads. Both prismatic frames and frames with non-prismatic elements like stepped beams and haunches at beam-column joints were considered. The effects of variables like haunch size, beam inertia, and live load patterns on internal forces and storey drift were examined. Key results showed that non-prismatic elements can reduce bending moments and axial forces compared to conventional prismatic frames.

Seismic response of _reinforced_concrete_concentrically_a_braced_frames

This document discusses the seismic response of reinforced concrete concentrically braced frames. It analyzes numerically various bracing patterns for a 5-bay 12-story building, including bare frames, fully braced frames, and partially braced frames with bracing applied at the bay-level or level-wise. Optimum bracing patterns are identified that reduce internal forces in columns and provide economic savings compared to bare frames or fully braced frames. Graphs show variations in axial, shear and bending forces for different bracing patterns, identifying patterns that fall within acceptable ranges. Savings of up to 7.87% are achieved with the optimum bracing patterns.

Use of mechanical_splices_for_reinforcing_steel

The document discusses the use of mechanical splices (couplers) as an alternative to traditional lap splicing for reinforcing steel. It provides details on different types of couplers, including threaded couplers. Experimental testing showed that couplers achieved similar or higher yield and ultimate stresses as compared to normal and welded reinforcing bars. While ductility was slightly reduced, factors like epoxy injection and staggered splicing can improve ductility. A cost analysis found that couplers provide significant cost savings over lap splices due to reduced steel requirements. Therefore, the study concludes that mechanical splices are an effective and economic replacement for lap splices.

Lately, there has been an increasing fascination with employing genetic algorithms (GAs) to tackle
intricate optimization issues. Genetic algorithms (GAs) draw inspiration from natural selection and have
demonstrated efficacy in discovering optimal solutions for many problems, such as diet optimization. This
research presents a genetic algorithm (GA) approach to estimate individuals' optimal daily calorie
intake. The proposed approach considers the individual's age, gender, height, weight, exercise level, and
dietary limitations. In addition, it considers the nutritional composition of various dietary items. The
strategy aims to create a daily meal plan that fulfils the individual's calorie requirements and supplies all
necessary nutrients. The suggested technique was assessed using a dataset consisting of 100 people. The
findings demonstrated that the approach successfully produced dietary regimens that satisfied the
individual's specific caloric requirements and encompassed all vital elements. The technique also
produced diverse and captivating food menus. Additionally, we recommend a fitness function that
assesses each suggestion's appropriateness for a given user. Ultimately, to completely comprehend the

- 1. TRUSS Page 1 CHAPTER 4 TRUSS CONTENT OF THE TOPIC: Definition of truss Types of truss Perfect Truss Imperfect Truss Deficient Truss Redundant Truss Assumption made for the analysis of truss Analysis of truss Types of methods of analysis Method of joint Method of section and Graphical method Problems on Method of joint and Method of section Definition of Truss: A truss is defined as a system of two force members connected in such a way that a rigid structure is formed. Truss is made up of two force members. Types of Trusses:
- 2. TRUSS Page 2 Perfect Truss: A perfect truss is that, which is made up of members just sufficient to keep it in equilibrium, when loaded, without any change in its shape. Such structure satisfies following equation. n = 2j-3 where, n = number of members j = number of joints Eg. Basic Perfect Truss Here n = 3 and j = 3 3 = (2 x 3) – 3 3= 3 Perfect Truss Here n = 5 and j = 4 5 = (2 x 4) – 3 5= 5 Deficient Truss: In such truss the numbers of members are less than (2j-3). Such trusses are unable to carry any loads. So such trusses are unstable which undergo deformation. Eg. Here n = 4 and j = 4 4 = (2 x 4) – 3 4 < 5 Where, δ is lateral displacement Redundant Truss: In such truss the numbers of members are more than (2j-3). In such trusses the members are more than required which is sufficient to carry loads. They don’t undergo any deformation.
- 3. TRUSS Page 3 Eg. Here n = 6 and j = 4 6 = (2 x 4) – 3 6 > 5 Member: The straight component bars of the trusses joined at the ends by the pins are known as members. Two force member: When a member is subjected to no couples and forces are applied at only two ends of the member is called as two force member or two point force member. Arrow away from joints Arrow towards the joints or or Arrow facing towards each other Arrow away from each other Frame: A frame is structure of combination of two force members and three force members or multi-force members as shown in Fig. 2. Figure 2
- 4. TRUSS Page 4 Assumption made for the analysis of truss 1) All the members are pin jointed. 2) All the members are assumed to two force members. 3) The truss is loaded at the joints only. 4) The self weight of the truss is considered as negligible in comparison with the other external forces acting on a truss. 5) The cross section of the members of trusses is uniform. Analysis of Truss: To analyze a truss is nothing but a determination of the reactions at the supports and the forces in the members of the frame. STEPS FOR MEHOD OF JOINTS AND MEHOD OF SECTION: Method of Section: 1) When the forces in all members of a truss are to be determined, then the Method of Joint is useful. 2) Calculate the support reactions for external loading acting on the truss. 3) Then find the forces in the members by joint by joint. a. Select a joint, in such a way that it will have only two unknown members (i.e. forces in the two members of a truss have to find). b. We have to select only two unknowns at every joint because we are available with only two equations (∑FY = 0 and ∑FX = 0). c. Initially assume all the unknown forces in the members of a truss as tensile. After calculation of force, if the calculated value in any of the member is negative then it reveals that the assumed direction or sense in that member is wrong; in that case change the sense. (i.e. if assumed direction is tension, then make it as compression and vice versa, in F.B.D. and calculate the force in other member by considering the changed sign. Repeat the same procedure for other joints). 4) Prepare a table showing member, magnitude and sense of force of each member of a truss. Method of Section: 1) When the forces in a few members of a truss are to be determined, then the Method of Section is mostly used. 2) Calculate the support reactions for external loading acting on the truss. 3) In this method, a section line is passed through the members, in which forces are to be determined.
- 5. TRUSS Page 5 4) The section line should be passed in such a way that, it does not cut more than three members in which forces are unknown because we are available with three equations ∑M = 0, ∑FY = 0 and ∑FX = 0. 5) If force in the members BC, GC and GF i.e. FBC, FGC, and FGF respectively we want to calculate. Then pass a section line 1-1 through these members. 6) The part of the truss, on any one side of the section line, is treated as a free body in equilibrium under the action of external forces on that part and forces in the members cut by the section line. See Fig. (1) and (2). (We have to select the LEFT or RIGHT part of the truss in such a way that, it will contain less geometry and external loads acting on the truss). Fig.1 Fig.2 7) The unknown forces in the members are then calculated by using the equations of equilibrium. ∑M = 0, ∑Fy = 0 ∑FX = 0
