Abstract

In this paper planar-frame structure with general load is introduced. These structures can be supported one or more symmetry planes. In automotive industry the symmetry gives opportunity for reduction during vehicle design process. The planar structures with planar and perpendicular load are examined with σ and Σ point methods. Furthermore coefficients of the compatibility matrix and location of σ and Σ point is represented when the structure have zero, one or more symmetry planes.

Keywords:

planar-frame structure; σ and Σ method; symmetry; reduction in commercial vehicle design
