Abstract:
The behavior of framed tube structures is discussed from an overall structural system point of view. The influence of various structural parameters affecting tubular behavior is emphasized. The concept of the equivalent reduced plane frame modeling technique is used for developing a series of "influence" curves for the preliminary analysis and design. An example problem is worked out using these curves and the results are compared with a more exact solution of a computer analysis.
