Problem #1 (40 points)
Assume torsional stiffness as well as axial stiffness are significantly larger than flexural stiffness.
Also assume no biaxial bending. Further assume a right handed global coordinate system for the
structure where the Y-axis is up on the page, the X-axis is to the right and the Z-axis is out of the
page. Under these assumptions for the beam shown below:

## (a) Determine the degree of kinematic indeterminacy (5 points)

(b) Develop the [SM] matrix for each beam segment. (10 points)
(c) Number the joints consecutively (i.e., A , B 2, C 3 and D 4) and number
the potential displacements at each joint in the order YT and ZR (T translation, R
rotation) and determine the size of the [SJ] matrix (5 points)
(d) Develop a joint restraint list and a scheme for renumbering the joint restraints (5
points)
(e) Develop the initial [SJ] matrix and identify the original restraint numbering system
across the top and along the left of the matrix along with your renumbering scheme
along the bottom and down the right hand side of the matrix. (15 points)

## Problem #2 (40 Points)

Assume torsional stiffness as well as axial stiffness are significantly larger than flexural stiffness.
Also assume no biaxial bending. The beam is constructed from the same material in all
segments of the beam. For the continuous beam shown below:

a. Formulate the stiffness matrix [S] and all pertinent matrices to find the shear and bending
moment (in that order) to the left of joint B and the shear and bending moment reaction
(in that order) at joint A. (30 points)
b. Show the changes necessary in the calculations of the shear and bending moment at joint
A if there is a support displacement at joint C. (10 points)

## Problem #3 (40 Points)

Develop the joint stiffness matrix [SJ] for the beam shown below. Then rearrange the stiffness
matrix and extract from a partitioned [SJ] the stiffness matrix [S]

## Problem #4 (40 Points) GRADUATE STUDENT PROBLEM

Develop the [SM] matrix for each beam segment shown below. Neglect axial deformations, torsion
and biaxial bending. Then develop the joint stiffness matrix [SJ] for the beam shown below.

All segments:
E = 200,000 MPa
= 0.3
Segment AB:
I = 100 x 106 mm4
J = 100 x 103 mm4
Segment BC:
I = 300 x 106 mm4
J = 500 x 103 mm4
Segment CD:
I = 200 x 106 mm4
J = 300 x 103 mm4

## Problem #5 (40 Points)

Explain how to find the displacements underneath the point loads and member end actions for the
continuous beam shown below using the stiffness method. Use matrix based equations from the
class notes to develop your explanation. This explanation need not be lengthy, but it must be
thorough, as in you must explain how to find the displacements and how to find the end actions.
This was an in class problem and a homework problem. Based on your assumptions in your
explanation develop the [SM] matrix for all beam segments. Neglect axial deformations, torsion and
biaxial bending. Then develop the joint stiffness matrix [SJ] for the beam. Once again assume the
