We were required to obtain the column moment of the frame loaded as shown below.

We can simply obtain this by summing up the moment at point B due to the externally applied;

Let anticlockwise moment be negative;

M

_{B}

^{Below}= (-2 × 2) + (6 × 2.5) = 11 kNm

It is as simple as that. So the correct option A.

Those that got the answers correct are;

*Thaddeus Odinakachi Ekwughaa**Ogundare Folahanmi**Guiseppe Martino Erbi**Ogungbire Adedolapo**Romel Batongbakal**Ajit umar Mohanty**Abdul Basheer**Shrujal Barvaliya**Ovie Agbaga**Peter O.*

A big congratulations to you all for contributing to knowledge and undersyanding.

We were required to plot the bending moment of the frame shown below due to the applied unit load;

The frame is statically determinate and stable.

Therefore the moment at point C due to the load at point C is given by;

M

This moment of 3 kNm acts as a couple from point C and goes all the way down to point B.

The moment at point A is given by;

M

Therefore, the correct option is A.

Those that got the answer correct are;

_{C}= (1 × 3.0) = 3.0 kNmThis moment of 3 kNm acts as a couple from point C and goes all the way down to point B.

The moment at point A is given by;

M

_{A}= (1 × 11) = 11.0 kNmTherefore, the correct option is A.

Those that got the answer correct are;

*Guiseppe Martino Erbi**Ogungbire Adedolapo**Romel Sevilla Batongbakal**Feyisetan Kwasima**Ajit Kumar Mohanty**Charles**Thaddeus Odinakachi Ekwughaa**Palo Tuleja**Shrujal Barvaliya**Shah Ezud Din**Ovie Agbaga**Peter O.*

A big congratulations to you all.

We are to calculate the deflection of the structure by considering the main moment diagram and unit state diagram.

Solution;

By applying Verecshagin's rule;

Deflection = 1/4 × 6 × 2× 2 = 6/EI metres

Those that got the answers correct are;

*Ogungbire Adedolapo**Ogunleye Emmanuel**Mezie Ethelbert**Giuseppe Martino Erbi**Romel Sevilla Batongbakal**Ovie Agbaga*

Winners

From the rules of the competition, the winners for the week are as follows;
