Document Type: Journal Paper


Inclined chord bents with members of variable section are analyzed by means of modified moment-distribution procedure in which equilibrium between internal forces in chord members and external forces is maintained throughout entire distribution operation; solution is obtained directly with aid of relatively simple expressions for fixed-end moments, stiffnesses and carryover factors.
