The Effect of Differential Settlement on a Larg, Rigid, Steel-Framed, Multi-Storey Building

The paper gives details of the distribution of moments and forces induced in the beams and columns of a large, rigid, multi-storey, steel-framed building, due solely to a vertical settlement of any column. The construction is described and a typical frame is chosen and analysed elastically. From this empirical approach a pattern appears to emerge, and it is hoped that this information will be of use to engineers engaged in thc design of such buildings on difficult sites where sizeable differential scttlements may have to be accepted.
