Arch model analysis

A plane strain arch model analysis with optional pins at crown and foundations and optional spring supports using a stiffness matrix based on 3 degrees of freedom at each joint – vertical and horizontal deflections and 1 rotation. Loading is by joint forces in 2 directions or nodal moments.
