 Anil Das said: (Sun, Feb 22, 2015 07:14:40 PM) The no. of equation formed depends on the no. of joints.

 Shahzad said: (Thu, Apr 23, 2015 09:37:57 AM) The number of equation depend upon the support and joint.

 Ammu said: (Thu, Jul 2, 2015 08:48:16 PM) Please explain clearly.

 Rajesh said: (Sun, Jul 5, 2015 12:26:30 PM) Explain how?

 Jaya said: (Fri, Jul 10, 2015 04:07:21 PM) I can't understand.

 Vengat said: (Tue, Jul 14, 2015 10:53:15 AM) I want deep explanation.

 Moni said: (Fri, Jul 24, 2015 12:09:35 PM) In slope deflection method: The simultaneous equation can be solved only by the count of number of joints in that structure.

 Lokesh said: (Mon, Jul 27, 2015 07:59:54 PM) Whatever the forces formed are acting in any type of structure, will act on joints (imagine all supports can be considered as joints, but joints are not supports). Force can act horizontal & vertical at any joints. Generally to get unknown forces we will prepare equations accordingly.

 Vara said: (Thu, Oct 1, 2015 03:56:59 PM) Number of equation depends upon the number of joints.

 Rihan said: (Mon, Nov 2, 2015 10:07:40 AM) Consider 1 frame equation to be solve is 3 now explain how it depends on joint. It depends on KI neglecting axial deformation.

 Govardhan said: (Thu, Nov 26, 2015 12:37:06 AM) Number of equations depends upon the number of joints.

 Nelson said: (Fri, Nov 27, 2015 01:40:04 AM) Some body explain me?

 Subhendu said: (Thu, Dec 10, 2015 01:55:10 PM) No I didn't think so, it depends on the degree of kinematic indeterminacy. Think of a frame which can be both sway & non-sway. In former case equations are 2 while in later case it is 3.

 Firdous said: (Sun, Jan 31, 2016 09:34:23 PM) It VL depend on no of joints. As we have to determine joint rotations which in turn give us unknown moments.

 Jyothsna said: (Wed, Feb 3, 2016 01:55:42 PM) What is meant by VL?
