Abstract

THE novel formulation termed the "integrated force method" (IFM) has been established in recent years for analysis, and design of structures. In the integrated force method of analysis, a structure idealized by finite elements is designated as "structure (n,m)" where (n,m) are the force and displacement degrees of freedoms of the discrete model, respectively. The structure (n,m) has m equilibrium equations and r= (n — m) compatibility conditions. The generation of the equilibrium equation is straightforward. The generation of the compatibility condition is intricate.
