Braced Frameworks: An Introduction to the Theory of Structures, Second Edition is a five-chapter book that first underlines the basic concepts in braced frameworks. Braced frameworks are a particular type of construction that has application in almost every branch of engineering. The book also explains the statically determinate trusses and redundant trusses. Secondary stresses and the failure of braced frameworks are also addressed. This text lastly describes the design of a braced framework to perform certain specified functions. This book will be very useful to students engaged in various branches of engineering since the ideas incorporated in this book are applicable to all kinds of structural systems.The displacements of the joints due to this rotation (during which the truss is regarded as a rigid body) must be added to those of Fig. 41(b) in order to obtain the ... The Williot-Mohr diagram for the truss under discussion is shown in Fig. 41( e).
