The Analysis of Single- Storey Multi - Bay Gabled Rigid Frames

Gabled rigid frames are becoming increasingly common in single-storey factory construction, but where there are two or more bays the analysis by the usual methods of structural theory presents considerable difficulties in computation. This paper presents a method, based on the general conception of moment and thrust distribution, which greatly simplifies such problems. It is particularly advantageous where the structure consists of a large number of bays, where the roof members are in several straight portions or are curved, and where the members are of variable cross-section. It is also applicable to multi-span portal frame bridges. A.J. Francis
