The left hand side of equation (5.11) refers to the external virtual work done by the
system of true/real forces moving through the corresponding virtual displacements
of the system. The right hand side of equation (5.8) refers to internal virtual work
done. The principle of virtual displacement states that the external virtual work of
the real forces multiplied by virtual displacement is equal to the real stresses
multiplied by virtual strains integrated over volume. If the value of a particular force
element is required then choose corresponding virtual displacement as unity. Let
us say, it is required to evaluate , then choose

Summary
In this chapter the concept of virtual work is introduced and the principle of virtual
work is discussed. The terms internal virtual work and external virtual work has
been explained and relevant expressions are also derived. Principle of virtual
forces has been stated. It has been shown how the principle of virtual load leads to
unit load method. An expression for calculating deflections at any point of a
structure (both statically determinate and indeterminate structure) is derived. Few
problems have been solved to show the application of unit load method for
calculating deflections in a structure.
