A Rapid Method of Computing Geometric Relations in Structural Analysis

Serial Information: Civil Engineering—ASCE, 1983, Vol. 53, Issue 5, Pg. 51-53

Document Type: Feature article

Abstract: A rapid method of computing geometric relations in structural analysis is presented. The method is shorter than usual methods, in many cases, and can often produce a result in one step. In this method the virtual work equations provide a simple method for obtaining the desired relationships quickly.
