Question 1: The segmented Beam STU features a pinned support at Point S and an internal hinge at Point T; in addition, it is supported by two vertical inextensible cable hangers suspended from Cable ABCD. The inextensible cable ABCD has a total length of 11.5 m. Determine the length of the two cable hangers (BE and CF), assuming that the attachment point E and F remain exactly 5.0 m below Pts. A and D. Include the self-weight of Beam STU (mass 49 kg/m), but not the self-weight of the cable. Solve this problem using the General Cable Theorem.
