I've been working on a schematic and its been going beyond my comprehension; so i thought i should consult better structural engineers here. (I'm a fresh Civil Engr Graduate though)
i have this scheme shown below, where the task is to design a truss carrying a conveyor mechanism. i'm able to calculate trusses of any type with correct loading parameters, but this scheme has been eluding me for hours.
The issue is that, i know trusses cannot carry load on their members as done in the scheme where 7.3 KN is applied. This is where the problem is, am i missing something? this is my first conveyor truss analysis, i really hope this QA site will shed a lot more light on this matter. Thanks
