Too Long; Didn't Read

This article is important because analysis of a structure like a truss is time-consuming and students in the field of structural engineering are bound to make errors. It helps you to compute the stresses and displacements in structural elements. We will be using a python library called [anastruct] for the structural analysis of our structure. This is implemented by importing systemElements class from the anastruct library and instantiating the structure object. Then we can access all the structure objects states, including elements, materials and forces. We use the [anaStruct library for the implementation of the 2D Finite Element method for structures.
