Initial stress/strain loads


In this case the consistent equivalent nodal loads are given by the first two terms of the Eq. (21):





These nodal loads are self equilibrating, produces zero resultant force and zero resultant moment. Some particular cases are given in order to illustrate the evaluation of the initial stress loads.
