There are very few cases of side effects with acupuncture. o Transformation from local to global coordinate system. You need to adjust the stiffness matrix to account for the reduced stiffness of the beam at the spring restraints. where [m]NxN=thereduced massmatrix, [c]NxN=thereduced dampingmatrix, [k]NxN=thereduced stiffness matrix, [E>]a>]a>]a>
