Realistic Modelling of Steel Portal Frame Behaviour

A major research project has been carried out by the Universities of Manchester and Salford in which the behaviour of steel portal frames up to failure was investigated. The project was concerned principally with the testing of three full-scale portal frames and the development of a non-linear finite element analysis program. Supplementary studies included second-order elastic-plastic frame analysis and the effect of stiffeners on connection flexibility. Professor J.M. Davies, P. Engel, T.T.C. Liu and L.J. Morris
