Bracing of structures to prescribed buckling loads
Barbato J, Lawther R

 
Abstract
    Stiffness and flexibility equations are combined in the buckling analysis of a braced structure - stiffness for the original structure and flexibility for the bracing. Choosing a flexibility formulation for the bracing gives a very compact computational problem. It also gives theoretical insights into the behaviour of the braced structure.
 
Key Words
    buckling, eigenvalues & eigenvecters, bracing, stiffness, flexibility
