Hello and welcome to another structure analysis tutorial .
In the last tutorial , we create our free account and first project.
In this tutorial , we will use this powerful Truss and Roof calculator to create our first Truss structure.
In the end of this tutorial , you will be able to design and calculate any truss structure and get all the analysis
You can check out the full project in this link .So let's start it
Define nodes with these coordinates
Define bars with these start and end nodes
Apply support pinned to node 1 and roller x to node 4
All beams are articulated in both side.So,apply release P-P to all beams using the shortcut: *
Define material m1 with Young Modulus equal to 210000 megapascal
Define a square hollow section s1 with 7 centimeter side and half centimeter thickness with m1 material you just create
apply section s1 to all beams using the shortcut: *
Define Point Loads :
Apply Point Load P to node 1 and Point Load Q to nodes 2 and 3
Verify your structure and click solve to start calculate
the reactions of the structure equal to :
The maximum displacement of the structure equal to :
The maximum shear force of the structure equal to -62.776 kilonewton in all beam 6
the length of beam 6 equal to 2.44 m and its section s1 has Area equal to 13 cm2 and Inertia(Iy) equal to 92 cm4
Now you become able to design and calculate any truss structure and get all the results you need.
