Number the global degrees of freedom (dof) in the most complete way without accounting for the axial dof's, which are obviously not relevant for this loading. 2. Set up the equilibrium equations in terms of the element forces Q and the applied forces at free dofs f P , i.e. ff = B PQ for the first loading case. 3. Remove trivial equations from the equilibrium equations in question (2) and renumber free
