The thesis examines the behaviour and design of unbraced steel frames with rigid and semi-rigid connections. An approximate hand method has been developed for the calculation of second-order elasto-plastic failure loads for single storey frames. Studies were carried out to propose limiting values of frame parameters, so that the first-order plastic theory can be used as a safe design method for single storey frames. A second-order e1asto-plastic computer analysis program has been… CONTINUE READING
