Serial Information: Journal of the Engineering Mechanics Division, 1960, Vol. 86, Issue 4, Pg. 23-42

Document Type: Journal Paper


Method of analyzing elastic stability of rigid frame structures subject to sidesway; energy method is applied to assumed frame deformation compatible with its restraints; assumed deformations are chosen so that compatibility may be achieved by one standard moment distribution; formulas are given and presented in graph form; two examples are compared to results obtained by more rigorous methods.
