Unformatted text preview: Spring Semester 2009 2 2. Problem (5 points) The frame elements of the structural model (elements a through c) have negligible axial deformations. Elements a and b are heated up so that a uniform curvature field of 1×103 rad per unit of length results. 1. Determine the compatibility conditions that the deformations of elements c and d need to satisfy. 2. Use the compatibility conditions to determine the necessary initial deformations of elements c (initial camber) and d (lack of fit). 3. Determine the free dof displacements of the structural model. 4. Draw the deformed shape of the structural model. 5. Determine the rotation at node 4....
