Are you sitting in classes where the professor does not solve enough problems? Do you have a text book that only briefly illustrates a problem? Are you interested in becoming more proficient with your topics and understanding different ways in which a problem can be solved?If you answered YES to any of the above questions, then this Engineering Physics Series will help you. The author has taught mathematics, engineering physics, strength of materials, structural design and analysis in a university and college setting for more than 25 years. He has based this series on how students learn and the questions that were asked in classes.You will get a STEP by STEP approach with MULTIPLE SOLUTION approach. You will become proficient in solving these types of problems. This series is written so that the student can learn without the use of a tutor. Topics covered in each eBook will be comprehensive. A small price to pay to have a confident edge in solving these types of problems!!This eBook is part of the Engineering Physics Series. It contains TWO problems of medium complexity. One is a truss and one is a beam with various loads. The problems are solved in a step by step manner. These will save you money, as they are generally more complex than you would get from a tutor for a substantial reduction in price.The truss has seven nodes and 4 loads on it. Find the reactions. Determine the forces in each member using the Method of Joints. Check the shear and estimate the moment. Solve for a joint in equilibrium and use the Method of Sections.The Beam Problem is a Cantilevered Beam with 3 forces (UDL, moment and point load) on it. Find the reactions, and Shear + Moment Diagram.Problems are illustrated in steps. Disadvantages are mentioned for the joints in equilibrium method, as this is the “typical way” most texts talk about the Method of Joints.
