08/02/2009 STPinho 3 13 Forming and using the flexibility matrix Forming flexibility matrix: c Much less straightforward c Nowhere near so systematic as stiffness method 14 Forming and using the flexibility matrix c First, and often the most difficult , step is to decide upon how many redundancies there are in the structure c If structure is a mechanism, it cannot be solved (the stiffness method also gives a singular matrix in this case). Why? 15
