## ABSTRACT

The first and foremost step in structural analysis is problem formulation using an appropriate mathematical model. There are two models widely used in classical structural analysis, namely: (1) the statically determinate model and (2) the statically indeterminate model. Statically determinate models are relatively easier as they use only the basic equations of static equilibrium to solve the problem. Hence, one should look for ways to solve problems related to statically indeterminate models through computer methods. In order to solve the problems, it is important to formulate a standard procedure, which should be generic in nature and not problem-specific. Thus, it is important to note that the models should be restrained from any action to enable solution of the problem by using a standard equation of statics. This can be done by grouping the formation. Grouping is done through two methods, namely: (1) the flexibility method; and (2) the stiffness method.
