Multistory Frame Analysis for Vertical Loading

Appears on pages(s):
Building codes and textbooks state that in computing moments in multi-story frames for vertical loading, considering one particular floor, the far ends of the columns may be assumed as fixed. An examination of the computations for most rigid building frames in Melbourne, Australia, showed that this assumption may result in considerable error.
