String polygon method as extension of conjugate frame method to multipanel structures is explained; frame members may be of constant or variable section and their deformation may be caused by transverse loads, applied couples, change in volume, or displacement of supports; moment matrix is written in terms of 2 sets of linear equations, elasto-static and static equations, and are solved simultaneously.
