Calculate the Mass and the Stiffness matrix for the shear frame below. The mass is lumped at each level. The supports at end A,B are fixed . The columns are considered to have no mass. (Modulus of elasticity E, Storey masses m1,m2, Column moment of inertia I1,I2. )
The shear frame has two degrees of freedom, the sideways horizontal displacements u1, u2.
In order to find the first column of the Stiffness Matrix we apply unit displacement u1=1 and u2=0.
In order to find the second column of the stiffness matrix we apply unit displacement u2=1 and u1=0.
