Hence the forces in the members are due to both applied loads and an initial lack of fit.

Some care should be given to the sign of the lack of fit AR. We note here that the member BD is short by an amount AR so that the assumption of a positive sign for AR is compatible with the tensile force R. If BD were initially too long then the total complementary energy of the system would be written k f.
