“Degree of Fixity” methods have been widely developed for application to those cases of rigid frame analysis where sway may be neglected. In this note, the basis of these methods is examined and it is shown that the concept of “equivalent stiffness” is preferable that of “degree of fixity.” By means of this approach the methods are then extended to solve two problems where sway is of importance, namely, wind loading on
multi-storey buildings, and continuous beams on elastic supports.
