Objectives:

Differentiate between perfect, imperfect and redundant frames. To compute the member forces in

a frame by graphical method. To compute the forces in a truss by method of joints. To compute

the forces in a truss by method of sections. To compute the forces in a truss by method of tension

coefﬁcients.

The plane trusses are here by termed as plane frames. In this chapter, pin jointed plane frames

which are statically determinate are considered. A statically determinate frame can be completely

analysed by using statics. The number of unknown forces is the same as the number of equations

obtained from static equilibrium. The main methods in analysing statically determinate pin jointed

plane frames are (i) Graphical solution – Force diagram (ii) Method of resolution at joints (iii)

Method of sections and (iv) Tension coefﬁcient method. The ﬁrst three methods are used in plane

frames (trusses) and the fourth method is used for analysing the space frame.

A truss is an assemblage of three or more members which are hinged or pinned. A load applied

on the truss is transmitted to all joints so that the members are in pure compression or tension.

Consider a simple truss made up of three members hinged at the ends to form a triangle. A load

W is acting at the apex of the triangle and due to symmetry, the reactions are W/2 at each support.

member AC in tension. Due to the downward load W, the joint B is pushed vertically downwards.

The forces in the members AB and BC are in compression as the joint B is pushed. A force in the

member AB should counteract this force and hence this member force act towards the joint. Hence,

the effect of the application of the load results in pure compression or tension.

FIG. 2.2

It should be noted that the member forces marked in the above ﬁgure are the internal forces. It can

be remembered as, when the force is acting towards the joint it is compressive in nature. When the

force is acting away from the joint, it is tensile in nature. The compression members are called as

strut while tension members are called as tie.

2.2.1 Perfect Frame

A perfect frame has just sufﬁcient number of members to prevent the frame being unstable. The

simplest perfect frame is in the form of a triangle as shown in Fig. 2.2. It has three members and

three joints, namely A, B and C. If two more members are added to form another triangle, then one

more joint has been added. The frame will remain as a perfect frame as long as any number of

triangles are added. Thus, the frame will remain as a perfect frame. In essence, the ﬁrst three joints

or pins require three bars to connect them. While the remaining ( j − 3) joints require 2( j − 3) extra

bars. If m is the total number of bars or members required to connect j joints together.

m − 3 = 2( j − 3)

m = 2j−3

i.e., number of members to form a perfect frame = Twice the number of joints–3.

An imperfect frame is one where the number of members is less than (2 j − 3). In Fig. 2.3 the

number of joints are 4 and the number of members are four and hence

1. Starting from the force AB, the known forces, viz. AB, BC and CA working clockwise round

the frame, are set down in order and to scale as ab, bc and ca.

2. Consider the apex joint ab the centre of the clock, and the letters are read clockwise around

this centre.

3. Therefore, from the letter ‘b’ draw a line parallel to B1 and from the letter ‘a’ draw a line

parallel to 1A and both intersect at the point 1. From the force diagram, the magnitude of

the forces are obtained. The member force A1 = Member force B1 = 5.7 × 5 = 28.5 kN.

Member force C1 = 2.8 × 5 = 14 kN.

4. Consider the joint at the left hand support reaction. Read clockwise in the frame diagram.

Member A1 is inclined and in the force diagram a to 1 is downwards and hence mark the

arrow correspondingly in the force diagram from 1 to C it is towards right mark this direction

In the method of joints, the member forces are determined using the equilibrium conditions at

that particular joint. In this resolution of forces at the joint, the free body diagram at that joint is

considered. The procedure is explained as follows:

6. Consider the right hand support reaction and again read clockwise. 1B is inclined member.

In the force diagram 1 to b is downwards. Therefore, mark the arrow downwards at joint.

7. To determine the member force C1, from the force diagram it is noted that the force is acting

from c towards left to 1. Mark the arrow C1 in the same direction in frame diagram.

1. The loads AB, BC, CD, DE and EA are marked to scale.

2. Start with a joint of the left hand reaction. Draw a line through the point ‘a’ a line parallel to

A1 and from the point ‘e’ draw a horizontal line parallel to 1E.

They intersect at a point and is marked as 1.

3. Move to the next joint where 10 kN load is acting; Through ‘b’ draw a line parallel to B2 and

from 1 draw a line parallel to 12. These two lines intersect at the point 2.

4. After locating point 2 in the force diagram. Consider the joint where the members 1 − 2, 2 −

3, 3 − E and E − 1 meet. The point 3 is located on intersection of line e1 and a line drawn

through point 2 and parallel to 2 − 3 of the frame diagram.

5. The point 4 is located by drawing a line through 3 and parallel to 3 − 4 in the load diagram

which intersects the line drawn from ‘C’ in the force diagram and parallel to C − 4.

6. The point 5 is marked from point 4. Draw a line parallel to 4 − 5 of the frame diagram from

point 4 and this cuts the horizontal line through ‘e’.

7. Using the force diagram, the magnitude of the forces and the directions are obtained.

8. It is to be remembered that the arrows indicate not what is being done to the member but

what the member is doing at the joint at each end. Hence, if the arrow is acting towards the

joint it is compression and if the arrow is acting away from the joint then it is tensile force.

draw a line parallel to A2. The intersection gives the point 2.

3. The point 1 is obtained as follows. A line is drawn from point 3, parallel to 3 −C and from

point 2 draw line parallel to 21 and the intersection of 1.

2. If the truss is of cantilever type, the reactions need not be computed in general. If the truss

is stable and determinate where one support is hinge and the other support is on rollers;

compute the reactions at the supports.

3. Draw the free body diagram at each joint and analyse the member forces at a joint where

only two members meet. Then, consider the adjacent joint where only two unknown forces

to be determined. This process is repeated till the analysis of all joints are completed.

4. The results are tabulated along with magnitude of member forces and the nature of forces.

The forces are tensile if they are pulling (acting away) the joint. The forces are compressive

in nature if they are pushing (acting towards) the joint.

Due to symmetry the reactions are 25 kN at joint P and Q respectively. In graphical method the

loads and reactions are read clockwise. They are represented by capital letters written on either side

of the force, commonly known as ‘BOW’S Notation’. They are denoted with letters A, B,C and the

space inside the member is denoted by numbers. Note that the letters A, B,C are marked in the mid-

dle length of the members and not at the joints. The load at the apex 50 kN is denoted as ‘load AB’.

The reaction at the right support is denoted as ‘load BC’. The reaction at the left support 25 kN is

denoted as ‘load CA’. The member force in the horizontal member is denoted as ‘force 1C’.

FIG. 2.40

A statically determinate frame can be completely analysed by static methods. The number of

unknowns is the same as the number of equations obtained from static equilibrium conditions.

In method of sections, we isolate a portion of a frame by a section. This section causes the inter-

nal force appear to act as external forces in the isolated portion. The unknown forces are evaluated

by using equations of equilibrium. The three equations of equilibrium are used to evaluate the

unknowns. Thus, the section should cut only three members. (which include the one whose force

is to be determined) and take moments about a point through which the lines of action of other two

members intersect. The work is made simple by judicious of choice of such sections.

This method is not desirable if used to determine all the forces in the members of a frame. However,

it is readily useful to determine the forces in selected members of the truss.

Consider a truss shown in Fig. 2.41. It is required to calculate the force in the member GF of the

bottom boom.

The reaction at A is 66.7 kN acting upwards and hence it is taken as negative. The applied

load at G is 50 kN and is acting downwards and therefore it is positive. The vertical compo-

nent due to FGC is downwards, i.e., FGC sin 45. This is negative.

Summing up all the above forces in the vertical direction and equating upward forces to

downward forces.

∴ FGC = 23.62 kN.

that portion of the frame which remains after the cut has been made.

In the cut truss, two cut members, viz. CD and KJ are horizontal. They do not give any vertical

component of the force. Hence to maintain equilibrium in the vertical direction, the force FBJ which

is indirect at an angle θ should give a vertical component to balance the effect due to the vertical

reaction at A and the applied downward loads. Hence resolving vertically.

Let AB be any member of a truss having length LAB and the tensile force be TAB . The force TAB can

be expressed as

TAB = tAB LAB

where tAB is a tension coefﬁcient, LAB is the length of member AB. The component of TAB in

the direction of x axis is tAB (xB − xA ) and similarly the components in the direction of y axis is

tAB (yB − yA ) and in z direction it is tAB (z B = −z A) respectively.

If at the joint A, let the components of the external loads be XA ,YA and ZA acting in x, y and z

directions respective then for equilibrium of the joint where the members AB, AC and AQ meet

tAB (yB − yA ) + tAC (yC − yA ) + · · · + tAQ (yQ − yA ) +YA = 0

tAB (zB − zA ) + tAC (zC − zA ) + · · · + tAQ (zQ − zA ) + ZA = 0

At each joint, a similar set of three equations are formed for each joint and the tension coefﬁcients

are determined. The force in the member is obtained by multiplying this tension coefﬁcient with

the corresponding length of the members.

This is known as method of tension coefﬁcients. The procedure is as follows:

1. Mark the positive directions of x, y and z axis.

2. Assume all the members are in tension, i.e., the force is moving away from the joint.

3. Write down the equilibrium equations at each joint.

4. Solve the equations for unknown tension coefﬁcients.

5. Calculate TAB = LAB tAB .
