Structural Analysis and Design of Multistoreyed Framed Buildings by Ghias-ud-Din Habib
Continuous frame analysis is a very important design subject for a structural engineer, for in this field he is confronted with the conflicting requirements of achieving sufficient accuracy and at the same time expending a minimum of effort and calculation. For this purpose there are many analytical procedures established and evolved by eminent persons like Castigliano, Clapeyron, Maxwell, Poisson, Hardy Cross, Grinter, Kani and so on. In the presence of these the aim of writing this paper is to lay down in a simple form a procedure for adopting suitable methods, which may be easily understood, and are also comprehensive enough to solve the various problems, that arise in designing complicated framed buildings. Construction of a number of such buildings are in progress under the charge of the author at Lahore, and he has the opportunity of structurally designing a number of these. He has, therefore, ventured to sum up his observations in the form of this paper, so that it may be of some use to those who are interested in the design of multistoreyed buildings. While tackling this problem the paper deals with, in the beginning various properties of a rigid frame and different kinds of loads to which it is subjected. lt then gives various methods of stress analysis, finishing in the end with illustrations for stress analysis, which are self explanatory.
