About Application

The application serves for solving Engineering Structures by the Direct Stiffness Method (also known as Displacement Method or Matrix Stiffness Method). It makes linear static analysis of displacement and stress of plane Bar Structures. Teachers and Students can use it like an interactive teaching aid thanks to possibility to show all vectors and matrices used during the Structure analysis. Interactivity of the Application is mainly given by automatic resolving of the Structure model after arbitrary change.
