### CONTENTS

Introduction

Elastic Analysis of Framed Structures

Elastic Analysis of Continuum Structures

Plastic Analysis of Framed Structures

### INTRODUCTION

Structural Design Philosophy

Determisnistic or probabilistic-based?

Kind of failure modes?

Ex.

Design against Initial Yielding under Service Load

INTRODUCTION

INTRODUCTION

Preselect the set of constraints active at the optimum

Good when?

[critical constraints are easily identified AND

their number equals to the number of variables]

Wrong solution awareness!

[if wrong choice of critical constraints OR

their number is less than that of variables]

INTRODUCTION

Optimality Criteria Approach

Assume a criterion related to structural behavior is satisfied at the optimum

Ex.

Fully stressed design; displacement constraints; stability …

Iterative solution process, usually!

Characteristics

[simple; may lead to “suboptimal” sol.; not general as of math. programming]

INTRODUCTION

Math. Programming Approach

Oops, which of the constraints will be critical??

[no prediction on the set of active constraints 

essentially use inequalities constraints for a proper formulation]

Characteristics

[no single method for all problem; no accurate method for large structures  often based on approximation concepts]

Relative optima may occur

[ repeat computations from different starting points]

INTRODUCTION

Structural Analysis

Core of any S.O. formulation and solution

Acceptable analytical model

[yet be simple to analyze]

Most common

[elastic analysis of framed structures]

[elastic analysis of continuum structures]

[plastic analysis of framed structures]

### ELASTIC ANALYSIS OF FRAMED STRUCTURES

Frame structures

Length >> sizes of cross-section

Typically: beams, grids, trusses, frames

Assumptions for linear elastic analysis

Displacements vary linearly w/ applied forces

All deformations are small

Compatibility equation

Final displacement U and forces S

ELASTIC ANALYSIS OF FRAMED STRUCTURES

Force method

Brief procedure

• Determine degree of statical indeterminacy; Redundant forces and primary structure are chosen.

• Compute the entries of F, P, FU, UP, FS, USin the primary structure

• Compute unknown redundant forces X

• Compute desired displacements U and forces S in the original indeterminate structure

Displacement method

Equilibrium equation

Final displacement U (other than those included in q) and forces S

ELASTIC ANALYSIS OF FRAMED STRUCTURES

Force method

Brief procedure

• Determine the joint displacement degree of freedom; Add restraints (= Establish restrained structure. It is unique.)

• Compute the entries of K, RL, KU, UL, KS, SLin the restrained structure

• Compute unknown displacements q

• Compute desired displacements U and forces S in the original structure

Ex.

### ELASTIC ANALYSIS OF CONTINUUM STRUCTURES

Continuum structures

Often: plates, shells, membranes, solid bodies

PDE

Analytical solution or Numerical solution?

For small problems

For large problems

Methods

FDM

FEM

and many more …

ELASTIC ANALYSIS OF CONTINUUM STRUCTURES

Finite element method

See the structure as one compased of discrete elements connected together at a number of nodes

PDE?

Types of unknowns: Nodal displacements / Nodal stresses

If “material nonlinearity” or “geometric nonlinearity”  using FEM with an incremental approach

ODE

ELASTIC ANALYSIS OF CONTINUUM STRUCTURES

Finite element method

Brief steps

• The structure is divided into finite elements

• Compute stiffness matrix and nodal force vector for each element

• Transform to the global coordinates

• Assemble element stiffness matrices and nodal force vectors to have system stiffness and system force vector

• Apply boundary conditions

• Solve for unlnown nodal displacements

• Compute back internal stresses (or other desired quantities)

### PLASTIC ANALYSIS OF FRAMED STRUCTURES

What for?

Supplement elastic analysis by giving useful information about collapse load and the mode of collapse

Limit design (in various codes)

Plastic model

PLASTIC ANALYSIS OF FRAMED STRUCTURES

Kinematic Approach

Equilibrium of possible mechanism i

where

Ei: external work of applied service loads

i: kinematic multiplier

Ui: total energy dissipated by plastic hinges

PLASTIC ANALYSIS OF FRAMED STRUCTURES

Kinematic Approach

where

ij: hinge rotations

Mpj: plastic moments

J: number of potential plastic hinges

PLASTIC ANALYSIS OF FRAMED STRUCTURES

Kinematic Approach

After the kinematic theorem of plastic analysis

where

p: total number of possible mechanisms

PLASTIC ANALYSIS OF FRAMED STRUCTURES

Kinematic Approach

Independent mechanisms

where

NR: degree of statical indeterminacy
