In order to calculate support reactions, be it in beams, frames, trusses or arches, we must acquire knowledge from the previous pages of the “General Statics” handbook. I will not write much about them, because it will show the calculation of support reactions on examples in the later stages of this course.
If you have been practicing while doing this tutorial, you should not have much trouble calculating such things. In addition to the examples I have calculated, you will surely understand it quickly!
Do you still have problems with such things as the amount of reaction in a given support?
Go back, read and practice.
That’s it for the beginning, we move on!
