Forces and Deflexions in Changing Structures

Matrix methods are available to analyse structures of any shape. However, when designing a structure, it is often necessary to find out, without further tedious analyses, exactly how the forces and the deflexions throughout the structure change when some or many of its members are either varied or totally removed.
