Page 18 - Rt and the resultant of the wind loads, the three external forces must meet in a point if produced. This furnishes a method for determining the reactions, where the direction and line of action of one and a point in the line of action of the other are known, providing the point of intersection of the three forces comes within the limits of the drawing board.
