I. Read and analyze each item carefully, write HAVEY if the statement is True, WALEY if the statement is False and
write the correct answer for the underline word. (2 points each)

______________________1. Cable is a type of support for plane structure which the reaction consist of vertical and horizontal
component.
______________________2. Forces are considered Concurrent if the line of action of all the forces intersect at a single point.
______________________3. A structure is considered to be equilibrium if initially at rest, and remains at rest when subjected to a
system of forces.
______________________4. All the equilibrium equation must be satisfied simultaneously for the structure to be in active
condition.
______________________5. Roller is a type of support for plane structure which the reaction is always perpendicular to the
surface at the point of contact.
_______________,________________,_______________6. Enumerate the three common static equation of equilibrium. (5
points)

II. Compute the following problem.


1. The frame structure shown in the figure is subjected to a lateral load of 25 KN acting at B and a uniform load of 2 KN/m.
acting along a span BC. The frame is supported by a roller at A and a hinged at D.
1.1 Compute the horizontal component of the reaction D.
1.2 Compute the vertical reaction at A.
1.3 Compute the vertical component of the reaction at D

2. From the cable loaded as shown in the figure. ß 1 = 45° and ß 2 = 20°
2.1 What is the value for AB.
2.2 What is the value for BC.
2.3 What is the value for CD.

3. A simply supported beam having a span of 6m carries a triangular load which varies at 12 KN/m at the center to zero at
the supports.
