Re: dynamic condensation

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
There is a reference to "Condensed Mass Matrix" in chapter 11( 
page 291) of  "Theory of Matrix Structural Analysis" by P.S. 
Przemieniecki. The chapter in question deals with inertia properties 
of structural elements.

I hope this helps.
