Analysis of continuous space frames by conjugate frame analogy

The conjugate frame analogy is extended to the treatment of continuous space frames. Fundamental relationships between the actual structure and the conjugate structure are derived for a general case, and then specialized for frames with straight members of constant cross-section. The latter are used for the derivation of simultaneous equations which, in conjunction with the static equilibrium conditions, yield the redundant quantities. J. KIUSALAAS, S.L. LEE, and M. MAKINO
