Analysis of Vierendeel Truss by Influence Moments

by L.K. Chen,

Serial Information: Journal of the Structural Division, 1962, Vol. 88, Issue 4, Pg. 33-40

Document Type: Journal Paper


Method of distributing arbitrary fixed-end moments assigned to chord members at their ends; fixed-end moments are induced by unknown sway x in each panel of girder and are expressed in terms of sway x with suffix to indicate panel under analysis; moments distribution is performed by method of equivalent stiffness; shear in any panel is obtained by dividing sum of influence moments in panel by its panel length.
