ANALYTICAL METHODS OF STRUCTURAL ANALYSIS

Widely used nowadays:


• methods of Mechanics of Materials;
• methods for statically indeterminate structures:
• method of forces;
• method of displacements;
• beam theory for thin-walled structures;
• method of reduction coefficients.

Rarely used nowadays (mostly due to the progress


of numerical methods):
• methods based on Calculus of Variations;
• methods of Theory of Elasticity.
7
NUMERICAL METHODS OF STRUCTURAL ANALYSIS

Most widely used nowadays is


Finite Element Method (FEM).
The structural analysis using FEM is called finite
element analysis (FEA).

Generally, FEM is just a method to solve


differential equations.
The physical background of FEM is the same as in
analytical methods.

CLASSIFICATION OF STRUCTURAL ANALYSIS PROBLEMS

Statically determinate Statically indeterminate


Equilibrium equations could Equilibrium equations could
be directly solved, and thus be solved only when
forces could be calculated coupled with physical law
in an easy way and compatibility equations
Stress state depends only Stress state depends on
on geometry & loading rigidities
Not survivable, moderately Survivable, widely used in
used in modern aviation modern aviation
(due to damage tolerance (due to damage tolerance
requirement) property)
Easy to manufacture Hard to manufacture

be expressed as a set of three basic equations with
corresponding boundary conditions.

to tension/compression subjected to bending,
only shear or torsion
