An Iterative Method of Moment Distribution for Space Frames

A method is presented for the analysis of rigid space frames using iterative techniques. In no case are matrices larger than 3 x 3 used, so that the procedure may be carried out by manual methods or may, if desired, be programmed for computation using an electronic computer. The method is illustrated by two examples, one without sway and one involving sway of the frame. B. Rawlings
