I don't understand your drawing, nor what it is that you want to determine. I see no forces or torques being applied, other than A being a 50 KN weight. I don't follow what you mean by "A and B rotate 360 vertical" [sic] - do you mean each of those elements rotate independently about a vertical axis? Same question regarding the statement that "A, B, C, E rotate 360 horizontal." And D is supposedly a fixed point - what is it fixed to? Finally, what forces and torques are you trying to determine?
