Complmentary Strain Energy - Nonlinearity

ramdas chennamsetti's picture

Hi all!

I read that the "cmplementary starin energy of a structure is not equal to sum of the complementary strain energies of it's components, if there is non-linearity like geometric"

That means for e.g. if I consider a truss stucture subjected to loading so that it undergoes geometric non-linearity, then the sum of the complementary strain energies from members is not equal to complementary strain energy of the structure.

 I request somebody to explain why is it so??

 Thanks and regards,
