5.1 ANALYSIS OF INDETERMINATE STRUCTURES BY FORCE METHOD - AN OVERVIEW 5.1 ANALYSIS OF INDETERMINATE STRUCTURES BY FORCE METHOD - AN OVERVIEW 5.2 INTRODUCTION 5.3 METHOD OF CONSISTENT DEFORMATION 5.4 INDETERMINATE BEAMS 5.5 INDETRMINATE BEAMS WITH MULTIPLE DEGREES OF INDETERMINACY 5.6 TRUSS STRUCTURES 5.7 TEMPERATURE CHANGES AND FABRICATION ERRORS
5.2 INTRODUCTION 5.2 Introduction While analyzing indeterminate structures, it is necessary to satisfy (force) equilibrium , (displacement) compatibility and force-displacement relationships (a) Force equilibrium is satisfied when the reactive forces hold the structure in stable equilibrium, as the structure is subjected to external loads (b) Displacement compatibility is satisfied when the various segments of the structure fit together without intentional breaks, or overlaps (c) Force-displacement requirements depend on the manner the material of the structure responds to the applied loads , which can be linear/nonlinear/viscous and elastic/inelastic; for our study the behavior is assumed to be linear and elastic

5.2 INTRODUCTION (Cont’d) Two methods are available to analyze indeterminate structures, depending on whether we satisfy force equilibrium or displacement compatibility conditions - They are: Force method and Displacement Method Force Method satisfies displacement compatibility and force-displacement relationships; it treats the forces as unknowns - Two methods which we will be studying are Method of Consistent Deformation and (Iterative Method of) Moment Distribution Displacement Method satisfies force equilibrium and force-displacement relationships; it treats the displacements as unknowns - Two available methods are Slope Deflection Method and Stiffness (Matrix) method

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
