Episode 25 – Introduction to Statics and Forces on a Beam

This episode baby-steps into understanding how to solve problems to determine the forces on structural members. A completely graphical method is used to solve this problem by drawing right triangles and measuring the line lengths. A simple experiment is shown to roughly test the results. I show how I did the experiment, but I recommend

Episode 17 – Triangle & Complementary Angles

Fixture used to mark the complementary angle.  The framing square forms the right angle of the right triangle.

A right triangle (90 degree corner) and the two complementary angles

In this post I talk about a right triangle and complementary angles. I also show how this knowledge can be used to make a fixture to solve a real life problem. No measurements are used, just angles are copied.

The first picture shows
