Document Type: Journal Paper


The computer program provided for limit analysis of rigid frames involves a succession of elastic analysis for a load system by the displacement method. Output consists of the location and sequence formation of all plastic hinges up to collapse, and the deflections and moments at all nodal points at tie time of formation of each plastic hinge.
