Trusses

Degree of Static Indeterminacy

• DS = m+re – 2j where, DS = Degree of static indeterminacy m = Number of members, re = Total external reactions, j = Total number of joints
• DS = 0 ⇒ Truss is determinate
If Dse = + 1 & Dsi = –1 then DS = 0 at specified point.
• DS > 0 ⇒ Truss is indeterminate or dedundant.

Truss Member Carrying Zero forces

(i) M1, M2, M3 meet at a joint
M1 & M2 are collinear
⇒ M3 carries zero force
where M1, M2, M3
represents member. (ii) M1 & M2 are non collinear and Fext = 0
⇒ M1 & M2 carries zero force. Indeterminate Truss

Final force in the truss member sign convn → +ve for tension, –ve for compression
where,
S = Final force in the truss member
K = Force in the member when unit load is applied in the redundant member
L = Length of the member
A = Area of the member
E = Modulus of elasticity
P = Force in the member when truss become determinate after removing one of the member.
P = Zero for redundant member.
Lack of Fit in Truss Q = Force induce in the member due to that member which is 'Δ' too short or 'Δ' too long is pulled by force 'X'.

Deflection of Truss Where, yC = Deflection of truss due to effect of loading & temp. both.
If effect of temperature is neglected then
yc = ∑PkL/AE
α = Coefficient of thermal expansion
T = Change in temperature
T = +ve it temperature is increased
T = -ve it temperature is decreased
P & K have same meaning as mentioned above.

Stiffness Method for Truss ΔAB = ΔB - ΔA
PAB = AE/L[ΔEX - ΔAX)cos θ + (ΔBy - ΔAy) sin θ]
where, ΔAB = Axial deflection of member AB.
PAB = Force in member AB (Axial force)
