Explain me how it is?

The no. of equation formed depends on the no. of joints.

The number of equation depend upon the support and joint.

I can't understand.

Vengat said:   9 years ago
I want deep explanation.

In slope deflection method: The simultaneous equation can be solved only by the count of number of joints in that structure.

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.
