CIVL2007 Theory and Design of Structures II Analytical Component (2 February 2007) page 2 TOPIC 1: INDETERMINATE STRUCTURES - LECTURE NOTES - Determinate, Indeterminate and Unstable Structures In order to determine the degree of indeterminacy of a structure it is important to compare the number of independent unknown force quantities with the number of equations of equilibrium. A structure that has more unknown forces than available equilibrium equations is referred to as statically indeterminate. A structure that has the same number of unknown forces as available equilibrium equations is referred to as statically determinate. A structure that has less unknown forces than available equilibrium equations is referred to as statically unstable (i.e. a mechanism). Classify the following structures Note: Stresses and forces are generally less in statically indeterminate structures than in determinate structures. F F F

CIVL2007 Theory and Design of Structures II Analytical Component (2 February 2007) page 3 Redundant Forces Redundant forces are forces that can be removed from the structure without compromising the stability of the structure. When redundant forces are conceptually removed from a statically indeterminate structure, a primary structure is formed. It is important for the primary structure to be stable (i.e. not to be a mechanism).
