Assume now that elements b and c are delivered longer than shown in the above figure: element
b by 0.1 and element c by 0.2 units of length. Elements a and e are delivered with the required
length. What should be the length of member d so as to avoid stresses due to restraint?
Suppose that you were given all element lengths and corresponding deformation values from the
