The Direct Stiffness Method for Truss Analysis with Python
Build your own finite element truss analysis software using Python and model large scale structures
Created by Dr Seán Carroll | 8 hours on-demand video course
Welcome to this DegreeTutors course on the Direct Stiffness Method for Truss Analysis with Python. The aim of this course is to equip you with the tools and knowledge to build your own truss analysis software using the Direct Stiffness Method. By the time you complete the course you’ll have written a piece of software to deploy on your own analysis projects. Understanding structural analysis theory and hand-analysis techniques is an essential requirement of any competent engineer. It informs our intuition of structural behaviour and provides a foundation from which we can analyse complex structures.
What you’ll learn
- You’ll learn how to use the Direct Stiffness Method to build complete structural models that can be solved using Python
- You’ll build your own truss analysis programme that can be used to identify displacements, reactions and internal member forces for any truss structure
- You’ll learn about common models of elastic behaviour such as plane stress and plane strain and how they apply to real-world structures
- You’ll learn about stiffness matrices and how the Principle of Minimum Potential Energy can be used to determine the stiffness matrix of any structural element
