An approximate method is developed for the rapid plastic analysis of multistory steel rigid frames subject to sidesway under combined gravity and wind loading. Equilibrium is formulated on the deflected structure. Comparison with a more exact method of analysis indicated that the level of accuracy is adequate for the final design of relatively regular frames, and for the preliminary design of other frames.
