Most Solvers Can Be Marplots

Have you ever tried to replicate the familiar beam stiffness coefficients $latex 12EI/L^3$, $latex 6EI/L^2$, $latex 4EI/L$, and $latex 2EI/L$ (there's a poem about them here) by imposing unit displacements and rotations at fixed supports? It should be one of the first sanity checks you make when using or developing new structural analysis software. You … Continue reading Most Solvers Can Be Marplots
