8.12 Beams of 2 forces


Force applied by a beam of 2 forces. This elements have similar characteristics of forces. The only difference is that if the data of the force is unknown, the result will display if the beam is in tension or compression. Since this element represent the force applied by the beam, a positive value means compression and a negative means tension.

f:Magnitude of the force. If this data is unknown, FisicaLab will display in the result if the beam is in tension or compressed.
ang:Positive angle of the force, measured from the horizontal. This entry is present only in oblique beams.
