Abstract:
An analysis suitable for quick application to two-column symmetrical bents with vertical columns and Vierendeel trusses having parallel and similar chords is presented. Method is based on an equation expressing joint rotation in a given store as a function of shear in adjoining columns and of joint rotation in the two adjacent stories. After joint rotations are determined, moments are calculated by simple, spe- cialized slope deflection equations. Method may be directly applied for panel point loads; other load- ings are resolved to equivalent panel point loads. Illustrated solutions are developed for a six-story bent and an unsymmetrically loaded Vierendeel truss.
