The paper explores the safety of unbraced steel building frames designed according to AISC Type 2 construction under cyclic loadings. The study proceeds in the following steps: The probability of occurrence of live‐wind load cycles of various intensities to be expected during the lifetime of the structure is computed. A series of Type 2 frames is designed, following AISC specifications and common office practice. These frames are analyzed for behavior and strength under load cycles, using a…

Design and analysis of unbraced steel frames

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

Seismic response of unbraced steel frames

In the analysis and design of unbraced steel frames various models are employed to represent the behaviour of beam-to-column connections. In one such model, termed here as ‘Simple Construction’,

Analysis and Tests of Flexibly Connected Steel Frames

This study is intended to provide experimental verification of the validity of analytical methods for the prediction of the response to loads of flexibly connected steel frames. To this end, test

Load and Resistance Factor Design for Steel

Load and Resistance Factor Design criteria for steel building structures were developed from first-order (second-moment) probabilistic principles in a research project described in this paper. The

New Distributions of Extreme Winds in the United States

Using methods previously reported, annual extreme wind speed data series were extended with recent records at airports and reduced to the standard 30-ft elevation. These were fitted by the
