A Reduction Method For The Analysis Of Continuous Beams And Open Frames
Appears on pages(s):
Continuous beams and frames are reduced to simpler form, moments over loaded part of this form are computed and moments obtained are distributed among adjoining members, and a moment diagram for the entire structure is secured. Tables are given showing formulas of reduction and rules of moment distribution. Application of the method to a rigid frame structure is given, showing completed moment diagrams with and without sidesway.
