Title: Should The Type Of Indeterminate Problem Determine Its Method Of Solution?
Author(s): G. A. Maney
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 605-624
Abstract:This paper is prepared to bring out by simple llustration the logic of the claim that the type of indeterminate problem determines its method of solution. It reviews the modern methods of analysis for rigid frame problems. The example of a multiple joint rigid building frame under vertical load is solved by preferred (fixed-end moment) method. The precise slope-deflection, tabular slope-deflection, moment area, and consistent deflections methods are applied to several examples. The study proposes to guide the engineer to an efficient choice of analysis method, with a view toward saving time and improving design.
