CE 49 Department of Civil Engineering University of Queensland December, 1983 Synopsis The safe and economical design of curved spatial frames necessitates a geometrical nonlinear analysis of the structure. In this report, the nonlinear equations governing such structural behaviour are derived. Solution strategies which are capable of analysing the post buckling behaviour of structures are also critically reviewed. In addition, an extrapolation stiffness method that lends itself to a more efficient solution of the nonlinear equations than conventional Newton-Raphson methods is presented. The post-buckling responses of various spatial frames are analysed and the results found to be in good agreement with available published work. •.. " �- :: �.·.

INTRODUCTION Curved structural space frames belong to a class of structures where a large proportion of the applied loading is resisted by the axial forces in the members. This together with the trend towards optimum light weight members, for reasons of economy and aesthetics, has brought to the fore the stability analysis of this type of structure, as it is inclined to fail through elastic instability before exhibiting any sig nificant nonlinear material response. The elastic buckling load has in the main been calculated using linear instability theory, through a linearised eigenvalue approach. For structures where the pre-buckling path is linear or close to being linear, this method will suffice. How ever, in the presence of initial imperfections and geometric nonlinearities, this procedure can grossly overestimate the actual buckling load. In addition, the information furnished by a linearised eigenvalue analysis is limited. The pre-buckling load-deflection path is not traced out and more importantly the nature of the bifurcation failure, whether the failure is catastrophic or there is an increase in post buckling stiff ness as the structure deforms further, is not known. These considerations lead us to the desirability of considering the geometrical nonlinearities when formulating the equilibrium equations, the result of which is a system of nonlinear equations. The formulation of the nonlinear equations governing the large deflection behaviour of framed structures has been extensively studied by various authors and is based on either the finite element method [1-5] or on the 'beam-column' approach [6-13]. In describing the motion of the element, a total Lagrangian or an updated Lagrangian description can be employed. The finite element formulation is generally used in con junction with a total Lagrangian material description. Analyses based -2- on this approach are however 1 imited by the magnitude of the joint rotations. To overcome this problem of large joint rotations, an up dated Lagrangian approach can be employed which separates the effects This is of pure member deformations from the joint displacements. achieved by introducing a local, convective reference system attached to the member. The nonlinear equations can be· solved by utilising the uncon strained minimisation algorithms of mathematical programming. All the geometrical nonlinearities are included in the potential energy function al which is then minimi.sed. Techniques such as the random search method [14] and Powell's method of conjugate direction [15] utilise the object function only; the method of steepest descent [14] and the conjugate gradient method [16], in addition makes use of the gradient (first derivative); while the quasi-Newton [17-19], secant-Newton [20] and Newton-Raphson [21] require the evaluation of the 2nd derivates as well. This approach has been adopted by Berke and Mallet [2] as early as 1969, and more recently by Papadrakakis [13] and Kamat [22] to trace the complete load-deflection path of spatial framed structures. An alternative to solving the nonlinear equations lies in using an incremental form of the equilibrium equations. The linearised incremental-iterative techniques appear to be more efficient than the minimisation methods for large scale problems. It however, breaks down at the first onset of instability due to the singularity of the incre mental stiffness matrix. Earlier work on the large deflection behaviour of framed structures employing an incremental iterative method has thus been limited to studying their prebuckling behaviour [8-10,23] and it is only very recently that robust and efficient techniques that circum vent this problem have been developed. Several good reviews of these -3- techniques for traversing the limit points exist in the literature [24-27]. These solution strategies have invariably been applied to the analysis of thin shell structures. To the authors' knowledge the only published work utilising these nonlinear solution strategies to spatial frames is that of Reference [4,28] on two-dimensional frames and of Reference [5] on three-dimensional frames; were presented. where only limited examples There is thus scope for further work in applying these newly developed nonlinear solution strategies to analysing the postbuckling response of spatial frames. In the linearised incremental-iterative technique, equilibrium iterations are performed within each increment. ( NR ) In the Newton-Raphson method, each iteration would entail the assembly and factorisation of the tangent stiffness matrix. This is, however, very expensive and in practise the tangent stiffness is kept constant throughout the incre ment or is changed only after a few iterative cycles. will be needed for the modified Newton-Raphson method More iterations ( mNR ) , but this may more than outweigh the cost of reforming and refactorising the incremental stiffness matrix at every cycle. The authors in Reference [29] have developed an extrapolated stiffness strategy which was found to be more efficient than the mNR or NR methods, when tested for plane frames. The applicability of the conclusions reached in Reference [29], to three-dimensional frames is also demonstrated in this report. 2. DERIVATION OF GOVERNING NONLINEAR EQUATIONS The 'beam-column' approach has been used here in deriving the governing nonlinear equations. Here in the members are assumed to be of constant cross-section with the external loads applied only at the joints. Only conservative or displacement independent loading is considered. -4- Shear deformations are neglected and the matedal is assumed to be linearly elastic. For the three-dimensional frames, the members' cross sections are doubly symmetric, thus excluding coupltng of the torsiona 1 stiffness to that of the bending and axial stiffness. Warping effects are also neglected. In developing the nonlinear equations, two types of co-ordinate systems are employed; a fixed global set of co-ordinates and a local convective system which rotates and translates with the member. The member deformations are thus separated from the joint displacements. The basic member force-deformation relations are derived in the local convective co-ordinates with member deformations assumed to be small relative to it, through the principle of minimum potential energy. This formulation of the equilibrium equation through an updated Lagrangian approach is thus applicable to analysing structures exhibiting large rotation small strain behaviour. The member forces and displacements in the various co-ordinate systems are illustrated i.n Figures 1 and 2 for the two and three-dimensional frames respectively. The rotational degrees of freedom are described by Euler angles for the case of the two-dimensional frames. Due to the occurence of large rotations in post-buckling analysis, this description by Euler angles is unsatisfactory for the analysis of three-dimensional space frames. This stems from the fact that finite rotations in three dimensional space are non-vectori.al quantities in that they do no comply with the rules of vector transformation. To overcome this difficulty, the concept of a joint orientation matrix comprising of a triad of orthogonal unit vectors as presented in References [12 and 30] is employed to describe the arbitrary large nodal rotations. -5- / Mz 1-P-x1 / (a) Member basic displacements and forces M,' ,, T+\ :__- L __ t- ; �o x, i inal pos tion sf (b) Member· intermediate displacements and forces f '{6 us J XL' L-r�---- "' '•( i'_, - f4 I u, x, (c) Member nodal forces and displacements (global co·ordmates) Figure 1.

One of the earliest techniques developed was to introduce spring coefficients into the incremental stiffness matrix [31,32]. This has the effect of augmenting the stiffness matrix so that it remains positive definite throughout the entire range of the analysis.

For the 4, this However, this technique cannot be easily justified from a mathematical viewpoint when multiple springs are added. In addition, for a multi degree of freedom system, the coupling of the artificial stiffness may destroy the banded nature of the stiffness matrix. Also the reference stiffness of the applied springs have to be obtained by trial and it should not be used for structures with local buckling or a tendency to bifurcate. Due to the singularity of the incremental stiffness matrix at the extremum points, equilibrium iterations easily break down. To overcome this problem which has plagued earlier researchers employing an incremental-iterative solution strategy, Bergan [24,25,33] the concept of a current stiffness parameter, S . With reference to P Figure 5, S p introduced is defined as [�J i r�t (41) -27- Augmented structure Figure 4. Actual structure Spring Constant Method - 28 - Load,P Deflection, Figure 5.

K. llr. _, _, - 1 The current stiffness parameter has an initial value of 1.0 and is zero at a singular point. This parameter can thus sense in advance the ap proach of an instability, and by suppressing equilibrium iterations when the magnitude of this parameter is less than a threshold value, the solution is prevented from breaking down. The solution, by pure load incrementation, is then made to 'jump' over the limit point and advance along its path. On the negative definite portion of the solution path, the 'current stiffness parameter' is negative and when this occurs the algorithm reverses the load and displacement increments. The solution then proceeds with negative load increments until the next extremum point is reached. Due to the low stiffness at the limit points, the load increment can produce uncontrolled displacements which may cause the solution to diverge. Small load increments are thus necessary, and this also helps to prevent drifting away from the equilibrium path. with small increments, the displacement can still be too large; Even and a simple method to prevent this is to calculate a norm of the displacement increment and scale back both load and displacement increments according to how much a specified maximum value has been exceeded. A popular method for avoiding the singularities is to increment the load parameter to the limit point, solving for displacements, then on beyond this point by incrementing a characteristic displacement to evaluate the corresponding load parameter. Argyris [34], but unfortunately his approach led to a system of non symmetric equations. Tong [35], This was first described by Yamada [36] Alternative approaches were presented by Pian and and Zienkiewicz [37] which circumvented the non- symmetric matrix problem, but were applicable only for a step-by-step -�- procedure without iterating to equilibrium within the displacement increment. These also required a modification to the incremental stiff- ness matrix. A scheme suggested by Haisler and Stricklin [38], which makes use of an initial value formulation, allows one to iterate to convergence. The proposed computational procedure is, however, cumber some and a simpler procedure as described by Batoz and Dhatt [39] exists. In the algorithm presented by Batoz and Dhatt, the tangent stiffness matrix K is used to complete 6u which is the incremental . -r displacement due to the residual forces, � and also 6� e which is that due to an arbitrary external load increment P i.e. (43) The actual external load applied is 6AP and this factor is obtained by specifying that the displacement increment at degree of freedom, n, satisfies a displacement, o, where (44) The actual incremental displacement vector, 6u is then given by (45) 6u The above procedure enables one to obtain the increment at the beginning of the iteration sequence. Subsequent iterations are performed in exactly the same manner except that o is now specified to be zero; iterating to convergence is achieved through keeping the selected nodal -31displacement constant. This particular strategy, in a more generalised form was also described by Powell and Simons [40]. From the writers' experience with the above strategy, it has proved to be both stable and efficient. However, it has the distinct disadvantage that the displacement component at the degree of freedom chosen. to control the incrementation has to be monotically increasing. If the controlling displacement snaps back from one load level to another, the strategy will fail to converge. A proper choice of the controlling displacement is thus essential and.for some structures this is not obvious and some experimentation will be necessary. It has been observed that instead of using a single component of the displacement vector, it is possible to use some measure of the complete vector as the controlling parameter. by Riks [41) and Wempner [42] This is the path followed where the load step, �A, is limited by the following constraint equation. (46) In the equation, ��is a prescribed scalar which fixes the length of the increment. This constraint equation was originally added to the incre mental stiffness expression but this unfortunately destroys the banded ness and symmetry of the stiffness matrix. By adopting a two step technique used by Batoz and Dhatt, as described above, this problem can be· overcome. This modified 'constant arc length' strategy of Riks and Wempner is presented by Ramm in Reference [26]; where both iteration in a 'plane' normal to the tangent and iteration in a 'sphere' are described. [43], This is illustrated in Figure 6. In the work of Crisfield instead of applying the constraint equation of of the following constraint.

Rik's method with iteration about a 'sphere' or iteration about a 'normal plane' (47) which from his experience appears to be numerically better. The 'constant arc length' method, by generalising the constraint equation from that for a single component of the displacement vector to that for the scalar product of the vector, is thus able to overcome the problem of the choice of a monotonically increasing displacement component associated with the single displacement component control techniques. Equilibrium iterations near a singularity do not pose any particular problems, as is the case with the 'current stiffness parameter' of Bergan. By iterating about a constant arc length or a constant displacement component as in the Batoz and Dhatt strategy, we are iterating in the externa1 1 oad space as we 11 as in the d isp1 acement space, and this is more efficient than conventional Newton-type strategies at constant load. This point is illustrated by the work of Crisfield in Reference [43]. From this brief review, the writers conclude that in terms of generality, -33- effectiveness and robustness, the 'constant arc length' method is superior to the other described strategies. :I I 4. CONSTANT ARC LENGTH STRATEGY OF CRISFIELD J At the start of an arc mental displacement vector, t>:\ ( o) length increment, 6u ( o) is the incre the corresponding load multiplier and 6� the prescribed generalised arc length.

In the majority of cases, this is unlikely to occur, and from the writers' experience this will probably occur only in structures exhibiting multiple instability directions at a point. A structure showing this type of behaviour is described in the numerical examples. EVALUATION OF POST-BIFURCATION EQUILIBRIUM PATH (SECONDARY PATH) 5. To investigate the stability of an equilibrium configuration it is necessary to formulate the quadratic form (59) where V V potential energy of the system. q generalised co-ordinates ij coefficient matrix of the quadratic form which is equivalent to the incremental stiffness matrix, � defined above. -37- According to the theory of stability of cons-ervative systems, the stalltltty of the equilibrium state ts· ens-ured if the above quadratic form is positive definite. E"quation (59) is indefinite for an un stable configuration while the transition between a stable and an unstable point of the equilibrium path is denoted by a positive semi definite Equation (59). The critical equilibrium state is in general either a limit point or a bifurcati.on point and they are illustrated in Figure 7. A necessary but not sufficient condition for the existence of a critical state is the vanishing of the determinent of the incremental stiffness matrix. det l�l = (601 0 This can be easily obtained during the factorisation of the tangent stiffness matrix in the incremental-iterative solution strategy, since it is the product of all terms of the diagonal matr.ix in the L D L decomposition. The precise definition of a critical equilibrium T state is given by the solution of the following eigenvalue problem (61) where a(k ) denote the eigenvector and the critical states. n(k) the eigenvalues which define A limit point is distinguished from a bifurcation point in that it is characterised by a vanishing load increase. The incremental-iterative solution strategy described in the sections above is capable of continuing the computation of the fund amental (basic) equilibrium path beyond the critical points. However, to follow a secondary path after a bifurcation point, will require a modification to the described solution strategy at the arc length increment immediately after the bifurcation point. The vector �F - 38 - load Parameter load Parameter Deflection (a) limit point Deflection (b) Figure 7.

Iteration to equilibrium is then performed as described in Section 4, with the modification that the incremental stiffness matrix used is �(9c g8) + to prevent the solution from coming back to the fundamental equilibrium path. This described technique of superimposing a fraction of the eigenmode on the displacement field at the bifurcation point can be called the 'perfect approach'. A simpler alternative without the need to compute the eigen vectors wi11 be to impose either a sma 11 perturbation in 1 oad or geometry to the structure. This 'imperfect approach' will yield a load-deflection path which approaches the perfect post-bifurcation path with increased - 40 - deformation of the structure (_see Figure 7). 6. EXTRAPOLATED STIFFNESS PROCEDURE Let us consider the efficiency of the linearised incremental., iterative arc length technique. It is apparent from Figure 8 that for the one degree of freedom cases, the point (a) which is the result after the first iteration, is a poor guess of the final solution. If instead of using the gradient to the solution path at the beginning of the arc length increment, it is possible to use the gradient of the point half arc length ahead, it would appear that the result after the first iter ation will give a much better estimate to the final solution. illustrated in Figure 8 where m is midway along the arc a-b. This is For a multi degree of freedom system, by using the tangent stiffness half an arc length ahead instead of the value at the beginning of the increment, the same conclusion should apply. The pertinent question now is; how to obtain the tangent stiffness half an arc length ahead since the nodal displacement associ ated with the point are not known at the beginning of the increment. For the strategy proposed herein, this is achieved by extrapolating forward the tangent stiffness from previous arc length increments. 3 A point Lagrange interpolation polynominal [45] will be. used and thus in addition to the tangent stiffness at the beginning of the arc length increment, its value at the previous two increments must be retained. The tangent stiffness matrices are stored in 'skyline' linear arrays. Let k., k. J J-1 and k. 1 represent and element of the tangent stiffness at J- the beginni.ng of the j, (j-1) and U-2) increment respectively. k j is the corresponding element of the extrapolated tangent stiffness half an arc length ahead at the j th increment and it is given by -41- k' j (2.5 - 1) (2.5 - 2) k j-2 (O - 1} (O - 2) (2.5 - 0) (2.5 - 2) + ------- (1 - 0} (1 - 2) (2.5 - 0) (2.5 - 1) + ------- (2 - 0} ( 2 - 1) 0.375 k. J-2 1.25 k. J-1 + 1.875 k. (67) J The above extrapolation is repeated for each element of the tangent stiffness to fonn the complete extrapolated stiffness matrix. This matrix is then factorised and used throughout the increment until convergence to the final solution. Since the extrapolation procedure described above required the tangent stiffness for the previous two increments, this technique can only be applied after the second arc length increment. For the initial two increments either the M.N.R. or the N.R. procedure will have to be used to iterate to convergence. The usefulness of this extrapolated stiffness strategy rests on the assumptions that (i ) for each element of the tangent stiffness, its value along the solution path does indeed have a relationship than can be modelled closely enough by a 3 point Lagrange interpolation polynomial. ( ii ) the extension from the single d.o.f. case to the multi d.o.f. system that by using the gradient ( tangent stiff ness ) at half an arc length increment ahead gives a much closer estimate to the final solution; and - ( iii ) 42 - this better initial estimate will iterated more efficient ly to the final solution than the current Newton-Raphson methods. These assumptions have been validated in Reference [29) for two dimen sional frames. The increased efficiency of these extrapolated stiffness strategy over the mNR method is demonstrated in the following numerical example for three dimensional space frames. 7. NUMERICAL EXAMPLES 7.1 CANTILEVER BEAM Figure 9 depicts a cantilever beam loaded at its free end with a concentrated load. The direction of the load is kept constant in a vertical direction throughout the deformation. is used to model the beam. A single frame element An analytic solution to this problem, obtain ed through the use of elliptic integrals, is given by Frisch-Fary [46]. It is observed that the results of the numerical analysis using the two dimensional frame program is indistinguishable from the analytical solution. 7.2 WILLIAMS' TOGGLE FRAME This problem illustrated in Figure 10, has been solved analytically as well as experimentally tested by Williams [6]. In his analytical treatment of the frame, Williams took into consideration the finite change of geometry as 11ell as the effects of the axial forces on the flexural stiffness and the flexural shortening of the members. -43- Result from first iteration Loading parameter,>..

Load deflection curves for Williams toggle frame -45- Wood and Zienkiewicz [4] have also investigated this problem employing an assumed desplacement finite element approach with five elements per member. Papadrakakis [13] used a 'beam-column' approach to derive the nonlinear equilibrium equations, which were solved through a vector iteration approach. The authors results, utilising one plane frame element per member, are in very close agreement with the analytical solution of Williams and the finite element solution of Wood and Zienkiewicz. 7.3 TWELVE MEMBER HEXAGONAL SPACE FRAME This hexagonal frame has been experimentally studied by Griggs !47]. The prebuckling behaviour has also been solved by Chu and Rempetsreiter [10] while Papadrakakis [13] traced the solution into the post buckling range. From Figure 11, it is observed that the present analysis is in agreement with that of Chu and Rempetsreiter in the pre buckling range. Papadrakakis' curve appears to be in exact agreement with that of the experimental result, which yielded a snap through load 4% lower than that of the writers. The post-buckling region of the writers' solution path does not correspond exactly with that presented by Papadrakakis. In his formulation, he treated the rotations as a vector and it appears to the writers, therefore, that the validity of his results in the presence of genuinely large rotations, which do occur in the post-buckling range, is doubtful. Iteration to convergence was achieved using the mNR method and the proposed extrapolated stiffness method. ations The average number of iter per arc length was 3.5 for the mNR method and 2.3 for the -46- 250 E = 439800 lb/in2 159000 lb/in2 0,494 in2 12 :0,02 in 2 G = Area = 13 J = = O.D2 in2 0,0331 in4 200 150 Present analysis ..c • c < Papadrakakis 191 II Chu- Rampetsreiter + Experimental results [34) [5) Present analysis, with the 6 0 � bo undary nodes res t rained against translational movement 100 i =no. of iterations for mNR j = no. of iterations for extrapolated stiff ness (4,2) so Figure 11.

This increased efficiency is further illustrated by the cpu times required for the two runs ( implemented on the VAX-11/780 computer ) , 22.5 sees for the mNR and 17.8 sees for the extrapolated stiffness method. Next, the structure with the six boundary nodes now restrained against translational movement in all directions, was reanalysed. As shown in Figure 11, this has the effect of yielding a larger snap-through load. In addition, it was observed at the snap-through load that two diagonal elements of the triangularised stiffness matrix changed sign ( from positive to negative ) at essentially the same load level. resulted in a This positive determinant and would indicate that the matrix is still positive definite if the determinant is used as the criterion for determining it. The incremental stiffness matrix is, however, negative definite at this stage, as is indicated by considering the sign of the incremental work done. At the lowest point of the post-buckling region, the solution strategy broke down as no real roots could be found for the quadratic of Equation ( 56 ) . On examination, it was found that at that load level, one of the rotational degree of freedoms exhibited a singularity before it occurred for the vertical displacement of the loaded node. This resulted in a norm mea:;ure of the displacement increment due to the residual forces becoming very much larger than that due to the external applied load which yielded the condition of Equation (58 ) . To prevent the applied solution strategy from breaking down, wherever the condition of Equation (58 ) occurs, iteration is suppressed and only pure incrementation is applied. -48- E = Area = G I + � r 25 t i- x 3, w = 5 3,03x 10 N/cm2 5 1, 096 x 10 N/cm2 3,17 cm 2 x2,v 25 1 B,216L� �� � k Figure 12(a). 43,3 .

The corresponding cpu times used are 46.3 sees for the mNR and 38.0 sees for the extrapolated stiffness technique. 8. CONCLUSION An updated Lagrangian large rotation formulation of the non linear equilibrium equations governing the large deflection of plane and space frames, within the confines of 'beam-column' theory has been presented. A comprehensive survey of the most recent solution strategies available for analysing the post-buckling behaviour of structures was also undertaken. From this review, it was concluded that the arc length strategy due to Crisfield [43] is most robust and efficient, and thus this incremental-iterative method was used in conjunction with the derived system of nonlinear equations to study the post-buckling behaviour of spatial framed structures. The results of the analyses are in good agree ment with previously published experimental and analytical work. Modifi cations to the described strategy to enable it to trace the secondary post-bifurcation path are also discussed. -51- The solution of the nonlinear equations is expensive in comput ing time and this is especially so for large scale problems. An extra polated stiffness method which would reduce the computing time needed to arrive at a particular solution was presented. For the space frames analysed above, it was found to be more efficient than using the conven tional mNR method. For most problems, what is required is the snap-through load without the need to trace the· post-buckling path. However, in some cases, for example in studying the effects of a concentrated load on a restricted part of the structure, it is important to obtain information on the nature of the load shedding after the occurrence of a local instability, in order to assess the behaviour of the whole structure. Due to the lack of robust and efficient techniques for critical points, not much attention has been focused on the problem of analysing the post-buckling behaviour of spatial frames. It is hoped that this report will go some way in helping to remedy this situation. -52- APPENDIX A - NOMENCLATURE A area of cross-section (k} a eigenvector [A] displacement transformation matrix [B I l member rotation matrix [B] transformation matrix relating local member forces to member basic forces [�] {flu} [LIB] change in [�] stiffness modification matrix to account for the effect resulting from of member forces (two-dimensional frame) .9E_ generalised gradient of load-displacement curve dr E modulus of elasticity e axial displacement of member {FJ, {fl} intermediate force vector {FI l rotated member local force vector {LIF}, {llf} incremented joint force vector � variation of the vector {ll ul displacement {LIF}, {llf I } {F} resulting from incremental {llg} incremental joint force vector GJ torsional rigidity I, I m moment of inertia [�], [k] member basic incremented stiffness matrix lKl member incremental stiffness matrix in local co-ordinates K, K. tangent stiffness matrix [ �Al augmented stiffness matrix [�Gl' [�Gl global incremental stiffness matrix - -1 -53incremental stiffne.ss matrix correspondi.ng to displacement vector {gc + g6} j th e 1 ement of tti.e tangent stiffness matrix stored in a 'skyline' array stiffness of fictitious· spring k undeformed length parameter generalised arc length parameter bending moment torsional moment stiffness modification matrix to account for the effect of member force (three dimensional frame) p axial force P, {P} external load vector {.1P} incremental external load vector [ i p( ) ] p ll i end section orientation matrix for end section incremental load multiplier {g } reference load vector q generalised co-ordinates t>g i [R] incremental generalised displacement vector at point transformation matrix for local convective co-ordinates to global co-ordinates R - �c residual force vector characteristic load vector �ref reference load vector [�] member orientation matrix llr incremental displacement vector {S}, {s} member force vector so sP transverse force current stiffness parameter -54- {LS}, {Ls} member incremental force vector LS 0 incremental transvers-e force [!l disp 1 acement transformation matrix {u} joint displacement vector {u'} intermediate displacement vector u' relative displacement of member ends measured parallel to undeformed member axis {Lu} incremental joint displacement vector LU incremental displacement vector {Lu'}, {Lii} intermediate incremental displacement vector L incremental displacement vector due to arbitrary external �e load increment incremental displacement vector due to residual forces Lu -r i .Su( ) incremental displacement from first iterative cycle to i th iterative cycle potential energy of system v coefficient matrix of the quadratic form v .. lJ relative displacement of member ends measured perpendicular v' to undeformed member axis {LV}, {Lv} member incremental displacement vector LW incremental work X ' X ' X I X I 2 ' X 2 ' X 3 3 global coordinate axes member coordinate axes a initial inclination of member to global axes [a] joint orientation matrix [La] incremental joint orientation matrix .s .. lJ LA nk kronecker delta incremental load multiplier eigenvalue - 55 - [11�] incremental joint rotation matrix e norm of stiffness matrix e , 8 m mn member relative end rotation e• joint rotation of node e angle of twist of member m t <P potential energy A load reduction factor m -56- APPENDIX B 1. - REFERENCES MALLETT, R.H. and MARCAL, P.V.
