Abstract

A computational framework is described for modeling pin-jointed structures comprising unilateral cable members and slender struts. The deep postbuckling behavior of struts is considered by means of 'elastica' analytical approximation. Prestressing is allowed. The proposed approach is incorporated into equilibrium path following procedures and illustrated in numerical examples.
