  • The complete solution for stresses and displacements of an elastic truss may be found by direct solution of the defining equations or by using either of the elastic minimum principles. From both a theoretical and computational approach, the three methods are very similar.Three related methods are available for elastic/perfectly-plastic trusses, but here they are quite distinct. It is shown that none of the three is entirely satisfactory, but that a combined method leads directly to a complete… CONTINUE READING
