3d tripod

tripod with legs "cd", "ad", "bd"
reactions from the "x", "y", "z" direction are "cx", "cy", "cz", "ax", "ay", "az", "bx", "by" and "bz". Please refer to attached pictures.

If unit load (F=1) applied on the "y" direction to the top of the tripod ("d"), what are the reactions? ("ax", "ay", "az", "bx", "by", "bz", "cx", "cy" and "cz")

The purpose of text solutions is to learn solution methods. Keep in mind the best solution method is adequately "generic", as to permit being written in general and in code for computer solution. You use a scalar approach via three 1-D-projections. Since the Tripod is 3-D, why not use a 3-D vector approach. The 3-D approach will require you learn to write 3-D vectors (easy as pie). Try 3-D vectors; you'll like them! Here is one example. Dog and Pony Show | THERMO Spoken Here! Good Luck with your studies. TSH topsquark and endy1101 like this.
