**Additional Materials**

**Some Truss Problems :**Zero force members, Problems- Statically Determinate Truss and Beams : Zero force members, Steps to solve truss problem, Use Symmetry wherever possible, Solved Examples
**Axial Force (AFD), Shear Force (SFD) and Bending Moment (BMD) Diagrams :**Steps to solve and draw the diagrams, graphical method, Solved Examples**Some Practice Problems with Solutions****Truss**- First find out the reactions
- Use symmetry wherever applicable
- Look for zero force members or special members
- Then proceed to finding out member forces.

**Frames**- At pin joint, two resisting reaction forces (Rx and Ry) would get developed for each of the members connected to the pin.
- Identify two-force members if any
- At pin joint, the moment is zero for all the individual members connecting that pin.
- Homework#4 Problem#1(b) Solution

**Axial Force, Shear Force and Bending moment Diagram**s- First find out reactions
- Take any section by cutting the beam at a distance
*x*from one end and find out shear force (T), bending moment (M) and Axial Force (N) as a function of x. - Or Use the graphical method as discussed in class.

- Revisiting all the concepts (Problem Set) (
*27th November*)

**Virtual Work **

- Learning Virtual Work Method in Statics in a Nutshell (
*Prof Ing-Chang Jong, University of Arkansas*):*Look at solved examples.*

- Practice Problems (Discussion Section, 4th Dec, 2017)
**Virtual Work Method Notes and Problem with Solution**

**Best of Luck for Finals !**
