Resolution of Forces Calculator v1

Resolution of forces calculator


The resolution of two forces is relatively simple and involves the triangulation of two straight lines. Where more than two force vectors are involved and/or are applied in more than one plane the error potential is increased, which is the reason CalQlata created Forres

The resolution of forces can apply to any 2-D or 3-D structural frame or even the connection between two or more tensioned cables (e.g. Catenary+), in either case, the replacement of multiple tension legs with one equivalent leg provides a safer and more economical alternative.


Forres resolves multiple individual force vectors all acting in different three dimensional directions into a single equivalent force along with its orientation.

This resolution of forces calculator is intended for resolving equivalent forces at nodes (or joints) in a structure where more than one member meets in a two or three-dimensional space-frame. The single equivalent force resolved for this joint will make the calculation of stresses or loads on a neighbouring joint considerably easier.

The resolution of forces calculator allows you to enter up to ten individual forces in any direction and uses a modified Polar co-ordinate system in order to minimise input and output orientation complexity.
