a) Determine the internal resultants FG, VG' and MG on the cross section at G of the
horizontal frame member. The uniformly distributed load on member AC has a
magnitude ofw0 =220 lb/ft.
b) IfBD has a rectangular cross section measuring 0.50 in. X 2.00 in., what is the
axial stress in member BD.
c) The pin at Dis in fact a bolt as shown in Figure b. If the bolt is made of a kind of
steel with shear yield strength of 43 ksi and a factor of safety of 3 is required, what .
should be the diameter of the bolt. For this calculation you can assume the bolt to
be a smooth pin.

right-angle bracket in Fig..
The bracket is supported
by a stnooth pin at B, and the rods at A and C are initially
stress-free. (a) Determine the axial stresses induced in rods
(1) and (2) if the temperature of rod (1) is decreased by 50F.
{b) Determine the transverse shear force V n and bending
moment MD on the cross section at D that result from this
temperature change.

is subjected to torsional loads at sections B and LJ. as shown
in the figure. The diameters are: d 1 = d2 = 40 n1m .., and d 3 =
30 n1n1. (a) Detern1ine the value of the torque TD added at
D that \\'auld n1ake the rotation at G, equal to zero, that is~
make <Pc = 0. (b) For the loading as determined in Part
(a).l determine the maximum shear stress in each of the three
rod segments.
