Tips for stiffness analysis

This article is also available in:

We will provide some tips about stiffness analysis.  In this video will be clarified terms such as:

  • theoretical member length
  • stiffness classification
  • how the rotation dependency on the bending moment determines the secant and initial stiffness

Besides, we will also explore the classification limits for rigid and semi-rigid class. And we will show you some theoretical background valid for stiffness analysis.
