Formulation of a General Space Frame Programme for a Large Computer

The development of a general computer programme for economical solution of large space frameworks by the stiffness method is described. The programme includes routine for equation solution by direct methods; the latter take advantage of the symmetry, bending and sparseness of the stiffness matrix. D.F. Brooks and D.M. Brotton
