Statically Indeterminate Structure
MetadataShow full item record
This interactive tutorial demonstrates the following about the solution of linearly elastic problems in solid mechanics: Solutions to complex problems can be constructed as the linear combination of solutions to simple, related problems., Solutions values, no matter how they are found, are the unique solution values if the structure remains compatible (i.e., all pieces fit together without gaps and voids.The interactions involve varying the values of forces on a beam, observing how it is bent, and comparing values of the same forces determined from the closed form solution.
