Lateral Load Analysis of Two-Column Bents

by J.E. Goldberg,

Serial Information: Journal of the Structural Division, 1958, Vol. 84, Issue 3, Pg. 1-17

Document Type: Journal Paper


Derivation of simple set of simultaneous equations involving only joint rotations in symmetrical two-column bent under lateral loads reviewed; equations are well-conditioned for rapid iterative solution, even in cases of rather extreme ratios of column stiffness to girder stiffness; method of solution is directly applicable to certain Vierendeel girders; both iterative and formal solutions demonstrated.
