Document Type: Journal Paper


Method of analysis, particularly advantageous for redundant structures, is developed in detail for pin connected truss; method enables deflections, member forces, and reactions to be determined for any arbitrary set of applied loads; equilibrium and continuity requirements can be satisfied by simple tabular procedure for writing stiffness matrix of entire structure.
