ASSUMPTIONS IN THE SLOPE DEFLECTION METHOD

This method is based on the following simplified assumptions.

1- All the joints of the frame are rigid, i.e, the angle between the members at the joints do not change, when the members of

2- Distortion, due to axial and shear stresses, being very small, are neglected.

Required Mab & Mba in term of (1) θA, θB at joint (2) rotation of member (R) (3) loads acting on member

First assume:- Get
