Systematic method of analyzing stability of frames against sidesway buckling is developed; 2 possible approaches are presented; slope deflection equation method based on equilibrium considerations and moment distribution procedure; these otherwise well known techniques, for analysis of stability of frames subjected to loads at joints, are extended here to general case in which primary bending moments occur prior to buckling.
