2D-Truss Analysis

The FEM-calculator of this page calculates support forces, truss forces and node displacements for 2D-truss structures.

Steps to set up a new model: If all the bars have the same cross-section A and the same young modulus and you are not interested displacements, you can simply enter 1 for A and E.
A and E have no influence on the bar forces in this situation.

The results are displayed:
Compression in red, tension in blue and zero force members in white.
