Consistent Deformations for Trusses - Page 1 of 6 Consistent Deformations for Trusses Objectives: 1. Set up the table to calculate truss deformations 2. Calculate the reactions for a 1-degree indeterminate truss structure The internal work for a truss member is: AE SL S = W i δ The internal work for the entire structure is the sum of all the members’ internal work. For a truss, the number of redundants is; 2N R + M = D where M is the number of members R is the number of reactions N is the number of nodes or joints. if D = 0 then the structure is determinate. D > 0 then the structure is indeterminate to the D th degree D < 0 then the structure is a mechanism (un-stable). Consistent Displacements Truss Example Given the following truss, find the member forces.

Consistent Deformations for Trusses - Page 2 of 6 The number of redundants that need to be removed is; 1 = 4 * 2 3 + 6 3, = R 4, = N 6, = M The structure is indeterminate to the first degree. Step 1) create a determinate base structure.
