A method is developed to analyze continuous structures (with nonprismatic members) with the use of the currently (1966) published moment distribution factors. From this method, unknown support moments can be solved directly by simultaneous equations. Examples are shown for analyzing a three span nonprismatic beam with external loadings and support yielding.
