    Unhappy Beam or Frame Analysis for Structural Analysis


    For Structural Analysis lesson, I have to write a C programme code for analyzing beam or frame.

    It looks quite hard but I hope you can help me.

"Finding the smallest program that demonstrates the error" is a powerful debugging tool.

    In the beginning I tried to define the lenght of the beam, loads and fixicity, degrees of freedom but but actually I couldn't make it.

    If someone has a file like this, maybe it can be reference for developing my homework.

    As a result, I just need a simple beam or frame analyses

    If you're just looking to find reaction forces, you can set something up to create your set of linear equations and use ATLAS or some other linear algebra library to solve for the forces:

    Automatically Tuned Linear Algebra Software (ATLAS)
    PROGRAM main
    PRINT *, "I love Fortran!"
    END PROGRAM main
