Additional Topics for the Stiffness Method
The computer programs given in the preceding chapter apply to the analysis of linearly elastic framed structures of arbitrary configuration but consisting of prismatic members of only one material. These structures are assumed to undergo small displacements when subjected to applied loads, and the principle of superposition is used throughout the analyses. Only actions applied at joints and fixed-end actions due to loads on members are acceptable as input load data for the programs.
