Statically indeterminate structures are those which can not be solved by using equations of static equilibrium alone. Displacement method and force method are commonly used […]

Pin-jointed truss develop axial forces (tensile or compressive) in its members if the external forces are applied only at the joints. Determination of member forces […]

Propped cantilevers are indeterminate structures. To solve such structures compatibility equations are also required in addition to equations of equilibrium. The following link has an […]

Moment of inertia is very important when we design structural members. It is a measure of resistance to deformation of a structure. An excellent online […]
