Direct numerical integration is based on the idea that the equations are satisfied only at discrete time intervals. In addition, the method is based on the assumption that a variation of displacements, velocities and accelerations within each time interval has a certain form. The form of this assumption determines the accuracy, stability, and cost of the solution procedure. Mode superposition, where the equilibrium equations are transformed into a form in which the step-by-step solution is less costly.

1 LINEAR ANALYSIS OF FRAMED STRUCTURES Framed structures are systems consisting of members that are long in comparison to the dimensions of their cross section. Typical framed structures are beams, grids, and plane and space trusses and frames. In linear elastic analysis we assume that displacements (translations or rotations) vary linearly with the applied forces, that is, any increment in a displacement is proportional to the force causing it. This assumption is based on the following two conditions: a.
