    I strongly feel that this type of equation is well beyond the scope of the ARE.  I didn't get anything even remotely close to this on my exams (assuming you didn't either?).  I didn't go into my tests having looked into anything at this level and found that to be an appropriate approach.  Hope this helps.

    thanks david. sort of weird as it is specifically referenced in the “Resources” and then is obviously a Case Studies document. then they have that engineering loads book listed as a primary reference. then Ballast covers this stuff /exhaustively/. great if it is not “there there” i suppose. i’m thinking they pulled this stuff at the last minute...

    Agreed.  Best I can tell you as well - let's say we're all wrong and by some odd miracle this question pops up on somebody's test.  To me, you guess and move on.  It will be one question on the test, not two.  Lose the point and just move on.  It's not worth the hours and hours of studying one would have to do to dissect and understand these structural calculations.
