In the first few chapters of this thesis the elope deflection equations for solving the trussed-rigid-frame problem were derived. The point of great importance in deriving slope deflection equations is that the imaginary plates or bars are added at separated domains or parts. Because of the existence of imaginary plates or bars the whole trussed-rigid-frame can be regarded as the rigid beam frame. The equations for determining the coefficients for the equivalent slope deflection equations of the separate domains can be formulated by applying the Castigliano’s theorems. The reactions and the stresses in every member of the trusses can be calculated after the reactions at the “joints” have been determined. In the last few chapters an illustrative example is given. Its solutions are checked with the solutions obtained by applying Castigliano's theorem to the whole frame. This proves that it is possible to analyze the trussed-rigid-frame by using the procedure mentioned in this thesis. The advantage in using this method is that the whole structure may be separated into domains when the number of members increases to such an extent that the capacity of a computer is exceeded. en dc.description.degree Master of Science en dc.format.extent 71 leaves en dc.format.mimetype application/pdf en dc.identifier.uri http://hdl.handle.net/10919/74559 en dc.language.iso en_US en dc.publisher Virginia Polytechnic Institute en dc.relation.isformatof OCLC# 21002944 en dc.rights In Copyright en dc.rights.uri http://rightsstatements.org/vocab/InC/1.0/ en dc.subject.lcc LD5655.V855 1963.L56 en dc.subject.lcsh Trusses en dc.subject.lcsh Strains and stresses en dc.title Slope deflection analysis of trussed rigid frames en dc.type Thesis en dc.type.dcmitype Text en thesis.degree.discipline Engineering Mechanics en thesis.degree.grantor Virginia Polytechnic Institute en thesis.degree.level masters en thesis.degree.name Master of Science en
