# Simulation Quiz 1

### Simulation of a Tent Structure

Tents are engineered structures featuring a frame of thin members supporting a fabric roof. A tent structure consisting of aluminum members with a tubular cross-section is anchored to the ground. Analyze this structure by extracting beams of the tubular members for the condition when a teenager, weighing 500 N, hangs onto a horizontal member at two locations as shown in the figure.
