Set up and solve Example Problem 15.8 on text page 619 using MASTAN2. NOTE! Solve EXAMPLE problem number 15.8 on page 619/620, not Problem 15.8!
Create a report with your answers listed. Use an Area = 20 in2 for all members. Your answers should reasonably agree with those in the book. They are influenced by your use of area =20 in^2.
If you use A = infinite, you get the Kassimali textbook answers, since the slope deflection method neglects axial deformations. If you use A = 0, the MASTAN answers are quite different since MASTAN thinks the members have no axial stiffness at all.
