It has to be degree of kinematic indeterminancy.

Lets say for frame ABCD EqS are,
Mab, Mba, Mbc, Mcb, Mcd, Mdc, ΣMb=0 ΣMc=0.

@All.

SLOPE DEFLECTION METHOD:

* Slope deflection method was proposed by George A. Maney in 1914.
* The slope deflection equation will give the relationship between B.M rotation and deflections.
* The number of simultaneous equations to be solved in the slope deflection method is equal to the number of joint displacements in the structure.
* In the slope deflection equations, the deformations are considered to be caused by B.M only.
* In slope deflection method, joint rotations are taken as unknowns.
* Slope deflection method is used to find S.F. and B.M. in a structure in which Slope and deflections are unknown.
* Slope deflection method can be used to analyse All the structures (Fixed beams, Continuous beams, Multi-storey portal frames).
* The slope deflection method of structural analysis is a method of displacement.
* Slope deflection method can be used to solve Statically indeterminate beams/statically indeterminate structures.

When was these question asked in gate exam?

Statical indeterminacy =strain energy method, it is support action.

Kinematic indeterminacy=flexibelity method, stiffness (or) displacement method, it is joint action.

Abhi said:   7 years ago
Depends on kinetic indeterminacy.

Suman said:   7 years ago
The number of equation depends upon the joints.
