A Graph-Based Approach for the Analysis of Framed Structures in Civil Engineering

Edgar Quispe Ccapacca | Percy Huata Panca | Hugo David Calderon Vilca


Abstract: Framed structures such as trusses, beams, and frames are used in the construction of buildings, bridges, transmission towers, etc. The analysis of such structures is necessary as a basis for the design, since it allows knowing the behavior of the structure subjected to different load conditions. This article presents the computational aspects for the development of an interactive graphical computer application for the analysis of framed structures. The application was programmed in Java 2D using the stiffness method. For the programming of the application, a graph approach is proposed, since the models of framed structures are topologically graphs. The developed application covers the three stages of structure analysis: pre-processing, calculation and post-processing. The results of the analysis of structures are compared with those obtained by commercial software, obtaining coincidence in the results, for which it is concluded that the presented approach is useful to develop graphic software for the analysis of framed structures.
