Calculation Of The Displacements by Using The Known Forces On The Nodes : The uniformly distributed load can be act as two forces and two moments on nodes c and d to do the same effect on the total structure.

The forces that should be acted would be V1 = V2 = -150 kN, Mc = -150 kNm and Md = 150 kNm

Nodal Forces : (in kN and kN m)

Axial Force :

Member ab : Dark Gray : +110.01 kN (in tension) Member ac : Light Gray : -118.80 kN (in compression) Member cb : Light Gray : -253.08 kN (in compression) No Axial Force on member cd.

Shear Force : No shear force on element ab. Member ac : Light Gray : - 51.26 kN Member cb : Dark Gray : -55.57 kN Member cd : Dark Gray : 300.00 kN to a zero value at the d

Moment Diagram : Diagram on the tension side of the element. No Moment on member ab. Member ac: The moment on node a is in clockwise direction. At node c it’s rotating the node c in clockwise direction. There is no external load on the frame element causing a constant shear force thru the element and that causing the moment diagram to be linear. Member bc: Moment on node b is zero since there is a roller support there. Moment on node c is bending the node in clockwise direction. Member cd : Moment at node c is rotating at counter-clockwise direction. So the total moment on node c is zero. (The other two moments on this node were in clockwise direction.) Node d is a free end so the moment there is zero. There is uniformly distributed load on the frame element causing a non constant – but linear shear force which causes the moment diagram to be parabolic. The moment is never on the other side of the frame element since there is no contra flexure.

Reaction Forces:

Reaction Forces at node b (Roller Support) Vb = 253.08 × 0.8 + 55.57 × 0.6 = 235.80 kN Hb = 0 ( Roller Support ) Mb = 0 ( Roller Support ) Reaction Forces at node a Va = 50 × 6 – 235.80 = 64.20 kN Ha = 0 Ma = 166.96 kN m Comments On The Coursework : The main difference between the slope deflection method and the stiffness matrix method is that in the stiffness matrix method, the axial deflections are also considered. With both methods, the displacements are found first, and then the internal forces are derived from the displacements, using the material and section properties, such as the Young Modulus, Moment Of Inertia and the area of the section. (Area of the section only for the stiffness matrix.)
