## A27 Review of the fundamentals of statics.

Introduction
The study of strength of materials depends on accurate knowledge of the forces acting on
the load-carrying member being analyzed or designed.
It is expected that readers of this book have completed the study of a course in statics
in which the principles of physics mechanics are used to determine the forces and moments
acting on members of a structure or a machine.
Presented here is a brief review of the principles of statics to help readers recall
fundamental principles and problem-solving techniques.

Forces
A force is a push or pull effort applied to a structure or a member of the structure. If the
force tends to pull a member apart, it is called a tensile force. If the force tends to crush the
member, it is called a compressive force. See Figure A271 for examples of these kinds of
forces applied in line with the axis of the members. These are called axial forces.
Forces on members in static equilibrium are always balanced in such a way that the
member will not move. Thus in the two cases in Figure A271, the two axial forces, F,
are equal in magnitude but they act in opposite directions so they are balanced. You should
also note that every part of these members experiences an internal force equal to the externally applied force, F. Figure A272 shows this principle by illustrating a part of the tensile member cut anywhere between its ends. The force on the left is the externally applied
force, F. The force on the right is the total internal force acting on the material of the member across its cross section.

Moments
A moment is the tendency for a force to cause rotation of a member about some point or
axis. Figure A273 shows two examples. Each of the forces shown would tend to rotate
the member on which they act about the point identified as A.
The magnitude of the moment of a force is the product of the force times the perpendicular distance from the line of action of the force to the point about which the
moment is being computed. That is,
M = Force times distance = F * d
The direction is simply observed from the figure to be clockwise or counterclockwise.

Example from Figure A273(b)
Moment about A due to F1: MA = F1 * a = (3.0 kN)(0.5 m) = 1.5 kNm Counterclockwise
Moment about A due to F2: MA = F2 * b = (4.0 kN)(0.6 m) = 2.4 kNm Clockwise
Moment about A due to F3: MA = F3 * c = (5.0 kN)(0.8 m) = 4.0 kNm Counterclockwise
Free-Body Diagrams
The ability to draw a complete free-body diagram of a structure and its members is an
essential element of static analysis. You must show all externally applied forces and moments
and determine all reaction forces and moments that will result in the structure being in
equilibrium.
Example from Figure A274
Show the free-body diagram for the complete structure and for each of the two members.
The applied force is F1 acting perpendicular to member BC.
See Figure A275 for the result. The following discussion summarizes the important
points.
a. The structure is comprised of members AB and BC that are connected by a pin joint
at B. AB is connected to the pin support at A. BC is connected to the pin support at C.
Pin joints can provide a reaction force in any direction but they cannot resist rotation.
We normally work with the horizontal and vertical components of the reaction forces
on a pin joint. Therefore, we show in Figure A275(a) the two components, Ax and
Ay, at A. Similarly, we show Cx and Cy at C.
b. Figure A275(b) is the free-body diagram of member AB. You should recognize that
the member would be in tension under the applied forces. The pin at B pulls down
and to the right. Therefore, the pin at A must pull up and to the left to keep AB in
equilibrium.
c. You should further recall that member AB is an example of a two-force member
because it is loaded only through pin joints. The resultant forces on a two-force
member always act along the line between the two pins. We label that force as AB.
Its components in the x and y directions are also shown. Note that the force system at
A is equal and opposite to that at B.

## (c) Free-body diagram of member BC

d. Figure A275(c) is the free-body diagram of member BC. This member is called a
beam because it carries a load, F1, acting perpendicular to its long axis. There must be
an upward reaction force at both B and C to resist the downward force F1. We call
those forces By and Cy. Member AB exerts the supporting force on member BC at B.
That force acts upward and to the left. We call the horizontal component of that force
Bx. The total force at B is equal to the force AB described in (c). Finally, to balance the
horizontal forces, there must be a force Cx acting toward the right at C.
Static Equilibrium
When a structure or a member is in static equilibrium, all forces and moments are balanced
in such a way that there is no movement. The equations that describe static equilibrium are:
a Fx = 0
a Fy = 0
a M = 0 About any point

a Fz = 0

## Z01_MOTT8498_05_SE_APP.QXD 4/3/08 1:19 AM Page 748 TEAM-B 103:PEQY138:Appendix:

748

Appendix

The first three equations state that the sum of all forces in any direction must add to zero.
We typically do the analysis in three perpendicular directions, x, y, and z. The fourth equation states that the sum of the moments about any point must be zero.
We use the equations of equilibrium to determine the values of unknown forces and
moments when certain forces and moments are known and when suitable free-body
diagrams are available.
Example from Figures A274 and A275
Determine the forces on all members and at all joints for the structure shown in Figure
A274. The given data are: F1  18.0 kN, a  0.3m, b  0.5m,   20.
Solution.
Step 1.

## We use the free-body diagrams shown in Figure A275.

Use part (c) first. We sum moments about point C to find the force By.

## a MC = 0 = F1 a - By l = (18.0 kN)(0.3 m) - By (0.8 m)

Then,
By = (18.0 kN)(0.3 m) (0.8 m) = 6.75 kN
We then sum moments about point B to find the force Cy.
a MB = 0 = F1b - Cy l = (18.0 kN)(0.5 m) - Cy (0.8 m)
Then,
Cy = (18.0 kN)(0.5 m)(0.8 m) = 11.25 kN
We can check to see if all vertical forces are balanced by summing forces in the vertical
direction.
a Fy = Cy + By - F1 = 11.25 kN + 6.75 kN - 18.0 kN = 0

(Check)

Step 2. Consider the forces acting at B. We know that By  6.75 kN. We also know
that the total resultant force, B, acts at an angle of 20 above the horizontal toward the left.
This is because it is applied through the pin by the force AB. The free-body diagram in
(b) indicates that AB acts along the direction of the member AB because it is a two-force
member. We can then say,
By = B sin 20
Bx = B cos 20
Then,
B = By (sin 20) = (6.75 kN) (sin 20) = 19.74 kN
Bx = B cos 20 = (19.74 kN)(cos 20) = 18.55 kN
Step 3. The forces acting at pin B on both member AB and member BC must be
equal and opposite because of the principle of action-reaction. Therefore, the axial force
on member AB is: AB  19.74 kN. The force AB acts at both A and B along the line between
the two pins in a manner that places the member AB in tension. The components of AB at
pin A are equal to the components at pin B, but they act in opposite directions.

749

Appendix

Step 4. The only unknown now is Cx, the horizontal force acting at C on member
BC. We can use the free-body diagram of member BC again from part (c) of the figure.
a Fx = 0 = Cx - Bx
Then,
Cx = Bx = 18.55 kN
Equilibrium of Concurrent Force Systems
When the line of action of all forces acting on a member pass through the same point, the
system is called a concurrent force system. For static equilibrium to exist in such a system, the vector sum of all forces must add to zero. Two methods can be used to analyze a
concurrent force system to determine unknown forces.
The Component Method
This method calls for each force to be resolved into perpendicular components, usually
horizontal and vertical. Then the classic equations of equilibrium are applied.

Solution. There are three cables that we will call AB, BC, and BD. All three are
two-force members and pass through point B as shown in part (b). Therefore, they are
concurrent.
Step 1.

## Determine the weight of the load. (See Section 15.)

w = mg = (1500 kg)(9.81 m s2) = 14 715 N = 14.7 kN

## This is also the force in the cable BD.

Step 2. Draw the free-body diagram of point B and resolve each force into its x and
y components. This is done in part (b) of the figure.
Step 3.

## Use Fy  0 to solve for the unknown force AB.

a Fy = 0 = ABy - BD

Then,
ABy = BD = 14.7 kN
But ABy is the vertical component of the cable force AB. Then,
ABy = AB sin u = AB sin 25
AB = ABy (sin 25) = (14.7 kN) (sin 25) = 34.8 kN
Step 4.

## Use Fx  0 to find the unknown force BC.

a Fx = 0 = BC - ABx

Then,
BC = ABx = AB cos 25 = (34.8 kN)(cos 25) = 31.6 kN
Summary: The three cable forces are:
AB = 34.8 kN

BC = 31.6 kN

BD = 14.7 kN

## The Vector Polygon Method

This method calls for the vector addition of all forces acting at a point. When the forces
are in equilibrium, the polygon created by the vectors will close, indicating that the vector
sum is equal to zero.
Example Using Figure A276(c)
Determine the force in each cable when the mass of the load is 1500 kg and the angle
  25
Solution. We must add the vectors, AB  BC  BD, as shown in part (d) of the figure. The graphical solution would call for drawing each vector in its proper direction and
with a length scaled to its magnitude. The vectors are connected tip to tail. We will sketch
a graphical vector diagram but solve for the required forces analytically.

Step 1. The sum can be done in any order and we could start at any point, say point
O. We will actually sum the forces in the order BD  BC  AB. Lets first draw the known
vector BD vertically downward to scale. The value is BD  14.7 kN as found in the component method.
Step 2. Add vector BC from the tip of BD and acting horizontally to the right. Its
length is unknown at this time, but its line of action is known. Draw the line of indefinite
extent for now.
Step 3. Then, adding vector AB to the end of vector BC should cause the vector
polygon to close by having the tip of AB fall right on point O. We can pass a line through
point O in the direction of AB. Where this line crosses the line of action of vector BC establishes where the tip of BC is. Similarly, the tail of AB is also at that point.
Step 4. In the vector triangle thus formed, we know all three angles and the length
of one side, BD. We can use the law of sines to find the lengths of the other two sides.
BD
AB
=
sin 25
sin 90
Then,
AB = (BD)(sin 90)(sin 25) = (14.7 kN)(sin 90)(sin 25) = 34.8 kN
Also,
BD
BC
=
sin 25
sin 65
Then,
BC = (BD)(sin 65) (sin 25) = (14.7 kN)(sin 65) (sin 25) = 31.6 kN
Summary. The results for the cable forces are identical to those found from the component method.
AB = 34.8 kN

BC = 31.6 kN

BD = 14.7 kN

## Law of Cosines Applied to Force Analysis

In some vector triangle solutions, you will know the magnitudes of two forces and the
angle between them. You can solve for the third force using the law of cosines.
Say for example, in Figure A276(d), you know the magnitudes of AB  34.8 kN,
BC  31.6 kN, and that the angle between them is 25. You could solve for the magnitude
of the force BD from:
(BD)2 = (AB)2 + (BC)2 - 2(AB)(BC) cos 25
= (34.8)2 + (31.6)2 - 2(34.8)(31.6) cos 25 = 216
Then,
BD = 1216 = 14.7 kN
You must carefully model the sides and angle to match the form of this equation.

Trusses
A truss is a structure comprised of only straight members connected by pin joints with
loads applied only at joints. The result is that all members are two-force members carrying either tensile or compressive loads. Figure A277 shows an example. Next we
describe the method of joints for analyzing the forces in all members of a truss.
Example Using Figure A277
Find the forces in all members of the truss shown in Figure A277. Determine both the
magnitude and direction (tension or compression) for each force.

## Analysis by Method of Joints

There are nine members in the truss. The general method for finding the forces in each
member is described next.
a. Solve for the reactions at the supports for the entire truss.
b. Isolate one joint as a free body and show all forces acting on it. The selected joint
must have at least one known force acting on it. It is recommended that there be no
more than two unknown forces.
c. When a member is in tension, the force pulls out on the joint at either end. Conversely,
a compression member pushes into a joint. Try to draw unknown forces in the proper
direction that will ensure that the joint is in equilibrium.
d. Use the equations of static equilibrium for forces in the horizontal and vertical directions to determine the unknown forces at the selected joint.
e. Forces found at the first joint become known forces for analyzing other joints. Move
to nearby joints and repeat steps b, c, and d repeatedly until the forces in all joints
have been found.
Completion of the Analysis of the Truss in Figure A277
Step 1. Using the entire truss as a free body, solve for the support reactions at joints
A and F. See part (b) of the figure.
Sum moments about support A to find support force Fy at point F.
a MA = F1(4 ft) + F2(10 ft) - Fy (14 ft) = (1200 lb)(4 ft) + (1500 lb)(10 ft) - Fy (14 ft)
Fy = [(4800 + 15 000) lb ft] 14 ft = 1414 lb
Upward
Sum moments about support F to find support force Ay at point A.
a MF = F1(10 ft) + F2(4 ft) - Ay (14 ft) = (1200 lb)(10 ft) + (1500 lb)(4 ft) - Ay (14 ft)
Ay = [(12 000 + 6000) lb ft] 14 ft = 1286 lb
Upward
Step 2. Isolate joint A as a free body. See part (c) of the figure. Work with components of the force AB. ABx  AB cos 45. ABy  AB sin 45.
a Fy = 0 = Ay - ABy
ABy = Ay = 1286 lb
Then,
AB = ABy (sin 45) = (1286 lb) (sin 45) = 1818 lb

Compression

a Fx = 0 = AD - ABx
AD = ABx = AB cos 45 = (1818 lb)(cos 45) = 1286 lb
Step 3.

## Isolate joint B as a free body. See part (d) of the figure.

BD = 1286 lb
Tension
a Fx = 0 = ABx - BC = 1286 lb - BC
BC = 1286 lb
Compression

Tension

Step 4.

## a Fy = 0 = 1200 lb - BD + CDy = 1200 lb - 1286 lb + CDy = CDy - 86 lb

CDy = 86 lb
Then,
CD = CDy (sin 33.7) = (86 lb)>(sin 33.7) = 155 lb
Compression
a Fx = 0 = DE - AD - CDx = DE - 1286 lb - (155 lb)(cos 33.7)
DE = 1286 lb + 130 lb = 1416 lb
Tension
Step 5.

## Isolate joint E as a free body. See part (f) of the figure.

a Fy = 0 = 1500 lb - CE
CE = 1500 lb
Tension
a Fx = 0 = EF - DF = EF - 1416 lb
EF = 1416 lb
Tension

Step 6.

## a Fy = 0 = Fy - CFy = 1414 lb - CFy = 1414 lb - CF sin 45

CF = 1414 lb (sin 45) = 2000 lb
Compression
Summary of Forces in Members of the Truss
AB = 1818 lb (C)
BC = 1286 lb (C)
DE = 1416 lb (T)

## AD = 1286 lb (T) BD = 1286 lb (T)

CE = 1500 lb (T) CD = 155 lb (C)
EF = 1416 lb (T) CF = 2000 lb (C)
