The Critical Load of Trusses with Redundant Members

A technique is presented of reaching the critical load of frames with redundant members in a systematic manner which reduces the amount of arithmetic needed in repeated trial and error methods. A very simple redundant truss is given as an example, but the method has been applied to more complicated frames with several redundants. Arthur Bolton
