The Takabeya method of frame analysis, based on the same slope-deflection equations as the Hardy-Cross system, has the advantage of requiring much less memory and fewer computations than Hardy-Cross. Thus the Takabeya method of solving frame problems permits engineers to use smaller computers with enough memory to solve reasonably sized structures. A digest of the derivations of the formulae and an outline of an algorithm for a computer program, based on this method are included.
