3fpbe 2Three Member Frame - Pin/Pin Top Horizontal Point Load Formula

\(\large{ R_A  = R_D = \frac{P\;h}{L}  }\)

\(\large{ H_A = H_D =  \frac{P}{2}  }\)

\(\large{ M_B = M_C =  \frac{P\;h}{2}   }\)

Where:

\(\large{ h }\) = height of frame

\(\large{ H }\) =  horizontal reaction load at bearing point

\(\large{ M }\) = maximum bending moment

\(\large{ A, B, C, D }\) = points of intersection on frame

\(\large{ R }\) = reaction load at bearing point

\(\large{ L }\) = span length of the bending member

\(\large{ P }\) = total concentrated load
