## the degree of indeterminacy of a structure is

equal to the no. of equations in addition to
the equilibrium equations necessary to
determine completely the reaction forces

## the degree of kinematic indeterminacy is

equal to the total number of degrees of
freedom of a structure that must be
constrained to ensure zero displacement of a
structure, excluding boundary constraints

PLANE TRUSS

A
two-dimensional
framework
of
straight prismatic members connected
at their ends by frictionless hinged
joints, and subjected to loads and
reactions that act only at the joints and
lie in the plane of the structure.

PLANE TRUSS

SYSTEMS

## In the matrix stiffness method, two

types of coordinate system are
employed to specify the loading data
and to establish the force-displacement
relation. These are referred to as global
and local coordinate systems.

## The global coordinate system is a right-handed

xyz coordinate system with the plane structure
lying in the xy plane.

## When analyzing a plane 2-dimensional structure,

the origin of the global xy coordinate system can
be located at any point in the plane of the
structure, with xy axes oriented in any mutually
perpendicular direction in the structures plane.

## Since it is convenient to derive the forcedisplacement relationships in terms of the force

& displacements. In the directions along and
perpendicular to members, a local coordinate
system is defined for each member of the
structure.

## The origin of the local xyz coordinate system for

a member maybe arbitrarily located at one of the
ends of the member in its undeformed state.

EXAMPLE

DEGREES OF FREEDOM

## The independent joint displacement (Translation

and rotation) that are necessary to specify the
deformed shape of the structure when subjected
to arbitrary loadings

## For trusses, since the joints are assumed to be

frictionless hinges, they are not subject to
moments and therefore, their rotations are zero.
Thus, only joint transaction must be considered
in establishing the DOF of trusses

DEGREES OF FREEDOM

EXAMPLE
The five joint
displacement can be
collectively written in
matrix form as

## Are external load applied to the joint are

specified in the global direction of the x & y aces
and vice versa. Any loads initially given in
inclined direction is resolved into their x & y
components before proceeding to analysis

## JOINT LOAD VECTOR

EXAMPLE

## Load component in x-dir = 150cos30 = 129.9 k

Load component in y-dir = 150sin30 75 k

## The five joint load of the

truss can be collectively
written in matrix form as

REACTION VECTOR

## A support that prevents translation of this

structure in a particular direction exerts a
reaction force on the joint in that direction
The three supports of the truss can be
collectively expressed in matrix form as

P=Sd
S= structure stiffness matrix
d = joint displacement
P = external loading

## The stiffness matrix for a member

expresses the forces at the ends if the
member as functions of the displacements
of those ends.

## numbered by beginning at the end of the

member designated b, where the origin
of the local coordinate system is located,
with the translation and force in the ydirection. The displacements and forces
are at opposite end of the member,
designated e, are then numbered in the
same sequential order.
