The beam-and-girder floor with some beams carried directly by columns and others supported on girders is cited as a practical problem in frame analysis that must include the torsional stiffness of the girder. Curves showing how moment coefficients vary with this torsional stiffness are developed for a few simple cases in interior panels. These show the weakness of rule-of-thumb method.
