A Study of Base Fixity Effects on Portal Frame Behaviour

A unique facility for structural and wind engineering research on steel portal framed building behaviour is described. The Silsoe Structures Building is an intensively instrumented full-scale building structure, the frames of which can be connected to their pad foundations by any one of three interchangeable bolted joint arrangements which are representative of those joints used in practice and also of the pinned condition normaily assumed in design.
