In engineering practice one often encounters planar problems, where the corresponding vector space of forces, velocities or (infinitesimal) displacements is three dimensional. This paper shows how these spaces can be factorized, such that the arising equivalence classes correspond to points and lines of action of the forces / velocities / displacements in the (projective) plane. It is shown how the study of projective transformations and dualities of planar mechanical systems is closely related… 



Projective transformations of structural equilibrium

Direct methods that transform the geometry of a structure and conserve its static equilibrium are of particular interest for designers. They allow the exploration of alternative solutions at minimum

Dualities have been known to map space trusses and plate structures to each other since the 1980s. Yet the computational similarity of the two has not been used to solve the unfamiliar plate

A Study of the Duality Between Planar Kinematics and Statics

This paper provides geometric insight into the correlation between basic concepts underlying the kinematics of planar mechanisms and the statics of simple trusses. The implication of this

Analytical graphic statics

This work shows the mathematical fabric joining different aspects of graphic statics, like dualities, reciprocal diagrams, and discontinuous stress functions, by introducing a new, three dimensional force diagram depicting the three dimensional equilibrium of planar force systems.

Projective invariance of shaky structures

SummaryA framework consisting of rigid rods which are connected in freely moveable knots, in general is stable if the number of knots is sufficiently large. In exceptional cases, however, the rodwork

Two figures are reciprocal when the properties of the first relative to the second are the same as those of the second relative to the first. Several kinds of reciprocity are known to mathematicians,

Extension of Graph Theory to the Duality Between Static Systems and Mechanisms

This paper is a study of the duality between the statics of a variety of structures and the kinematics of mechanisms. To provide insight into this duality, two new graph representations are
