Abstract: The derrick of portable drilling equipment is analyzed both as space truss and as space frame. The stiffness-matrix procedure is used for theoretical analysis. Tests were carried out on an actual derrick. The theoretical and experimental results are compared and the behavior of the derrick under load is considered. Suggestions have been made for the design of such structures.
