This lesson covers the principles and theorems related to energy, including the uniqueness theorem, superposition principle, minimum potential energy principle, and Castigliano's theorem. It further delves into the complementary energy principle, explaining its similarity to the minimum potential energy principle. The lesson also discusses the method of virtual forces and the concept of virtual stresses. It introduces the Maxwell Betti reciprocal theorem and provides illustrative examples to explain the application of these principles and theorems. The lesson concludes with the application of the minimum potential energy principle for solving statically indeterminate problems.

- The uniqueness theorem and superposition principle are fundamental concepts in understanding energy theorems.
- The minimum potential energy principle and Castigliano's theorem are crucial in the study of energy principles.
- The complementary energy principle is similar to the minimum potential energy principle, and it starts from the method of virtual forces.
- The Maxwell Betti reciprocal theorem is a significant theorem in elasticity.
- The minimum potential energy principle can be used to solve statically indeterminate problems.
