HAVING discussed in the standard longhand notation the main ideas and methods for the calculation of redundant structures on the basis of forces as unknowns we now turn our attention to the matrix formulation of the analysis. Consider a system consisting of s structural elements with a total number n of redundancies which may be forces (stresses), moments or any generalized forces. We select a basic system by ‘cutting’ a number r of redundancies where r<n. Thus, the simple idea of a statically determinate basic system (r=n) is but a particular case of our investigations.
