This Made Me Giggle

Dr. Pessiki gives old exams to the class to help prepare us for our exams. Naturally, he have us old finals to study from. I was going through them earlier this week, and when I came across this, I couldn’t help but giggle to myself. It’s always nice to find something that can make you smile during the stresses of finals. In case you can’t read it, it says “The statics are simple but if you get it wrong you are doomed.”

Hi! I'm Katie. I am a junior here at Lehigh and I am double majoring in Civil Engineering and Architecture. This Arts-Engineering program is a five year program where I will graduate with two degrees. I am from Quakertown, Pennsylvania, and I am one of the few commuting students at Lehigh. Despite of this, I am the Vice President of the Steel Bridge Team, and I played club rugby. Additionally, I do kickboxing and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu at a local martial arts gym. If you have any questions about anything at all, please don't hesitate to ask! View all posts by lukatie15

    haha nice. how do you solve it

  • lukatie15

    The statics (which means fining the reactions, which are the forces acting on the structure at the supports) are solved by taking the sum of the moments about one support to find the reaction at the other. Then, you check it by taking the sum of the forces in the y-direction. This is done under the principle of equilibrium. You can actually see how I solved for the reactions in the picture.
