Re: Timber pitched roof as a Diaphragm

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
This problem was first tackled by V. Vlasov in 1949 in his book
"Stroitelnaya Mechanika Tonkostennykh Prostranstvennykh Sistem"
(Structural Mechanics of Thin-walled Space Systems) using an
infinite series.

If a finite element analysis is required, the simplest elements
to use are linear load axials along intersections of diaphragms
and eight node quadrilateral shear panels for diaphragms.
