Airy Stress Function
Solving 3 equations in 3 unknowns can be reduced to a simpler form. The 3 equations
can be reduced to a single equation containing some function (x, y), which we call the
Airy stress function.
The Airy stress function will satisfy the

Truss Structures

Truss structures constitute a special class of structures in which individual
straight members are connected at joints. The members are assumed to be
connected to the joints in a manner that permit rotation, and thereby it follows from

APPENDIX A
Broms method for analysis of single piles under lateral loading
The method was presented in three papers published in 1964 and 1965 (Broms l964a,
1964b, 1965). As shown in the following paragraphs, a pile can be designed to sustain a
