Thermoelastic Structural Analysis

  • Jean Salençon


Despite the considerable simplification of the one-dimensional model constructed in the last chapter (Sect. 3), the static analysis of a structure made from one-dimensional elements generally leads to a statically indeterminate problem that can only be solved by introducing the constitutive law for the one-dimensional medium. The latter is the one-dimensional counterpart, for this type of medium, of the constitutive laws discussed in Chap. VII for the classical three-dimensional continuum, and it obeys the same general principles.
