Rigid-Body Assemblages

  • Murari Lal Gambhir


This section deals with the class of structures consisting of rigid-body-assemblages wherein the elastic deformations are limited entirely to localized spring elements. In these systems, the rigid bodies are constrained by the support hinges so that only one type of displacement is possible. For the systems discussed here the formulation of the stability problem differs from the classical Euler formulation due to its basically discrete nature.
