Abstract:Plane frame analysis is often used in analyzing un-braced reinforced concrete buildings for horizontal and vertical static loads. Modeling the stiffness of the beam-column connections in the frames is complicated by the difficulty in correctly defining the path of moment transfer. Three models of connection behavior are discussed: the equivalent beam width, transverse tor-sional member, and stub beam models. The equivalent frame method, developed around the torsional member model, was introduced in the ACI 318-71 code for the analysis of single floors under vertical load. A procedure for extending the method to encompass complete buildings of either flat plate or flat slab construction (divided into parallel frames) car
