Definition and Application of Equivalent Load for Stiffness

강성등가하중의 정의와 응용

  • Published : 2006.09.01


This paper presents the equivalent nodal load for the element stiffness which represents the influence of the stiffness change such as the addition of elements, the deletion of elements, and/or the partial change of element stiffness. The reanalysis of structure using the equivalent load improves the efficiency very much because the inverse of the structural stiffness matrix, which needs a large amount of computation to calculate, is reused in the reanalysis. In this paper, the concept of the equivalent load for the element stiffness is described and some numerical examples are provided to verify it.
