Abstract:
Reports a study of seven rectangular frames loaded symmetrically so that the columns were bent in single curvature. The object of the investigation was to study and evaluate the strength of the columns as integral parts of frames. For columns in single curvature, frame action permitted 5 to 15 percent more axial load capacity than that predicted without frame action.
