Shear, bending, rocking and translational periods of cantilever beams with linearly varying shear and flexural rigidities, and with or without concentrated mass at their top, are computed and combined to obtain formula for approximate evaluation of periods of framed buildings; it is suggested that more accurate formula based on present results, be adopted in codes to improve reliability of earthquake analysis.
