Abstract: A method for analyzing nonsway beam-and-column subassemblages, which are parts of a braced multistory frame, is presented. The type of subassemblage studied consists essentially of a column framed at its ends to beams of known properties. When subjected to load, the beams will deform with the column and thus provide restraint at the ends of the column. The method can be used to study both the elastic and inelastic behavior of subassemblages provided the material properties are known. Application of the method to the analysis of beam-columns continuous over several supports is also illustrated.
