Abstract: The static response of flexibly connected plane frames composed of thin-walled steel members is presented. Analysis capabilities include post-local-buckling strength and elastic semi-rigid connection behavior. Post-local-buckling behavior is included using the effective width concept. An exact stiffness matrix formulation is used to discretize the nonlinear equilibrium equations; solution of the resulting nonlinear algebraic equations is obtained using a modified Newton-Raphson iteration strategy. Numerical results are presented for a two story; two bay frame which demonstrates the influence of local buckling and/or flexible connections.
