Abstract: General equations for determining the redundants of a Vierendeel truss with nonparallel chords are derived by the principle of least work. By estimating values of two sets of unknowns, a procedure is devised to solve these equations by successive approximation. Two examples are given to illustrate the number of cycles required and magnitude of error involved.
