Analysis of structures
Considering:
n = number of parts in the structure.
r = number of reactions.

Stability:
Structure will be unstable in the following cases:
1) if r < 3 n
2) if r

3 n but all reactions are parallel.

3) if r

3 n but all reactions are concurrent.

Determinacy (provided of stability):
r = 3n

statically determinate.

r > 3n

statically indeterminate.

degree of indeterminacy = r - 3 n
