Results are consistent in terms of
forces but NOT displacements.
To get consistent displacements,
would need to perform
"incremental" analysis in Part (a).
Rotation values are

Prob. #1 (Text book problem 2-15)
Required: Develop the global stiffness matrix using three approaches. To check if stiffness
matrix is correct, use it to determine the displacement at joint a and the bar forces and com
Prob. #1 - Textbook Problems 2.1 (part a and b only)
Part a) Using stiffness equations, calculate the displacement at b. The beam is undeformable.
From equilibrium of the beam, the upward support force at b is equa
