Mechanics Homework 31-2 443 - Analysis of Frame by Method of Members Name_______________ Mr. Haynes Date_______________

Problem 31-2 The frame shown in Figure P-443 is hinged to rigid supports at A and E. Find the components of the hinge forces A and E and the forces in members BC and BD.

$$A_H = 12 ~ \text{kN}$$
$$E_H = 12 ~ \text{kN}$$
$$A_V = B_V = 6 ~ \text{kN}$$
$$E_V = 6 ~ \text{kN}$$
$$F_{BC} = 10 ~ \text{kN tension}$$
$$F_{BD} = 20 ~ \text{kN compression}$$
