The truss bridge shown below is made of Douglas fir timbers of a 4 mm × 4 mm cross section. Use ANSYS Workbench to determine the truss deformation and the support reactions.
The truss transmission tower shown below is made of structural steel members of a 2.5 mm × 2.5 mm cross section. Use ANSYS Workbench to determine the truss deformation and the support reactions.
1. Using Equation 3.11, derive the results of the equivalent nodal forces and moments for a beam element with uniformly distributed lateral load. 2. The cantilever beam is supported by a spring at the end as shown in the figure. Using FEM, determine the deflection and rotation at the node 2.
Using FEM, determine the nodal displacement, rotations, and reaction forces for the propped cantilever beam shown below. The beam is assumed to have constant EI and length 2L. It is supported by a roller at mid length and is built in at the right end.
The 2-D frame is supported as shown in the figure. Constants E, A, I of the beam and the length L are given. Using FEM, determine the displacement and rotation at node 2.
The plane frame is subjected to the uniformly distributed load and is fixed at the ends as shown in the figure. Assume E = 30 × 106 psi, A = 100 in.2, and I = 1000 in.4 for both elements of the frame. Using FEM, find the displacement and rotation of node 2.
Using ANSYS Workbench, solve the frame problem in Problem 3.5, and determine the reaction forces and moments at the two fixed ends. Problem 3.5 The plane frame is subjected to the uniformly distributed load and is fixed at the ends as shown in the figure. Assume E = 30 × 106 psi, A = 100 […]
The physical construction of two representative beam connections is shown in the figure below, where an I-beam is connected to a floor slab through a slotted bolt hole in (a), and is connected to a column through an angle bracket in (b). What simplified support conditions would you use to represent the physical construction in […]
