Statically Indeterminate Structures

Comparative Analysis of Cylindrical Water Tanks

Water tanks are usually rectangular or cylindrical in shape. Cylindrical tanks are usually employed for surface or elevated water tanks. Some of the challenges...

Plastic Analysis of Framed Structures

The fully plastic moment of a section (Mp) is the maximum moment of resistance of a fully yielded cross-section. The yielded zone due to...

Analysis and Design of Pedestrian Bridge Using Staad Pro

Pedestrian bridges (footbridges) are structures designed to enable human beings cross over obstacles such as busy highways, water bodies, gullies, etc. There are several...

Question of the Day (25/06/2018)

Structural Analysis of Free Standing Staircase: A Comparative Example

Free standing staircase offers very pleasing solution for vertical circulation in residential and commercial buildings. They are usually constructed in such a way that...

Sinking of Supports of Propped Cantilever Beams

1.0 Introduction Settlement of foundations occur due to load from buildings. Geotechnical engineers are usually interested in seeing that the settlements are uniform, while at...

Analysis of Statically Indeterminate Truss Using Force Method: Solved Example

Introduction Indeterminate trusses are analysed usually analysed using force method or direct stiffness method. In this post, we are going to analyse step by step,...

Precise Moment Distribution Analysis of Non-sway Frames

Precise moment distribution is a variation of moment distribution method which aims to shorten the time spent carrying out the normal moment distribution method....

Analysis of Continuous Beams with Partially Distributed Load Using Force Method and Clapeyron’s Theorem

For the continuous beam loaded as shown above, it is desired to find the bending moments at the critical points using force method (method...

Design of Reinforced Concrete Slanted / Raker Beams

Inclined beams (often called raker beams) are often found in structures like pedestrian bridges, ramps, staircases, stadiums, etc. Due to their geometry, these beams...

Analysis of Sub-Frames Using Stiffness Method: A solved Example

Several codes of practice in the world allow us to idealise structures into 2-dimensional frames for the purpose of simplified analysis. For sub-frames, it...

On the Deformation of Statically Indeterminate Frames Using Force Method

Structures deform when loaded. These deformations are often expressed in the form of deflections (translations) and rotations (slope). The knowledge about the deformation of...
