A timber dam is made of planking backed by vertical piles. The piles are built-in at the section A where they enter the ground and they are supported by horizontal struts whose centre lines are 10 m above A. The piles are spaced 1 m apart between centres and the depth of water against the dam is 10 metres. Assuming that the thrust in the strut is two-sevenths the total water pressure resisted by each pile, sketch the form of the bending moment and shearing force diagrams for a pile. Determine the magnitude of the bending moment at A and the position of the section which is free from bending moment. (Cambridge)
