AAE 352 6 Flexibility and stiffness A rigid structure has zero flexibility – it will not deform A rigid structure has infinite stiffness Zero stiffness means that the structure will not resist an increased external load Infinite flexibility means that a structure cannot resist an increased load PL k 1 ) FL ( - = θ PL k ) FL ( / 1 - = θ

### 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.
