This article presents an educational program designed to understand in a simple form, the stiffness structural analysis theory of two-dimensional framed structures. The program is written in spreadsheet form using the software Mathcad. Two examples are presented and they may be used as templates to solve different problems in which some interaction by the student is expected. This interaction contributes to the comprehension of the theory and helps the student to learn the theoretical basic… CONTINUE READING
