Minimum-Weight Design of a Portal Frameby W. Prager,
Serial Information: Journal of the Engineering Mechanics Division, 1956, Vol. 82, Issue 4, Pg. 1-10
Document Type: Journal Paper
Design of frames under assumption that unit weight of structural member is proportional to α-th power of its fully plastic moment, positive exponent α being smaller than unity; for α = 2/3, chart is developed that gives minimum weight design for various geometries and loading conditions of portal frame.
