Computer Programs for Framed Structures

  • William WeaverJr.
  • James M. Gere


This chapter contains flow charts of computer programs for analyzing the six basic types of framed structures by the direct stiffness method. The flow charts are sufficiently detailed so that persons who are familiar with the elements of computer programming could write their own programs for structural analysis if desired.
