Nonlinear analysis of semi-rigid frames with rigid end sections

10.22099/ijstc.2007.756

Abstract

This work presents a computer-based analysis of semi-rigid steel frames. The geometric nonlinearity of the structure and the material nonlinearity of the connections are considered in the analysis. The critical load has been searched as a suitable load parameter for the loss of stability of the system. Several examples are presented to demonstrate the validity of the analysis procedure.
