Document Type: Journal Paper


Principle of virtual work is derived for plane structures composed of straight members to permit general interpretation of function usually called virtual displacement and is applied to determination of deflections in elastic, viscoelastic, and elastic-plastic structures, and to problem of deriving equilibrium equations.
