Introduction: A shear frame may be defined as a structure in which there is no rotation of a horizontal section at the level of the floor. In this respect the deflected frame will have many of the features of a cantilever beam that is deflected by shear forces, Hence the name Shear Frame. To accomplish such deflection in frame, we must assume that: (1) the total mass of the structure is concentrated at the levels of the floors; (2) the beams on the floor are infinitely rigid as compared to the columns; and (3) the deformation of the structure is independent of the axial forces present in the columns. These assumptions transform the problem from a structure with an infinite number of degree of freedom (due to the distributed mass) to a structure which has only as many degrees as it has lumped masses at the floor levels. According to previous discussion a five stories frame modeled as a shear frame will have five degrees of freedom, that is, the five horizontal displacements at the floor levels. The second assumption introduces the requirement that the joints between beams and columns are fixed against rotation. The third assumption leads to the condition that the rigid beams will remain horizontal during motion. Determination of Lumped mass matrix: For shear structure; the mass matrix is a diagonal matrix (the nonzero elements are only in the main diagonal) whereas each one of these elements represents the total equivalent entire mass of the story as a concentrated lumped mass at the level of this story with understanding that only horizontal displacement of this mass is possible.

Therefore the lumped mass matrix is given by: 0 0 0 ⎤ ⎡100 0 0 0 0 ⎤ ⎡ m1 0 ⎥ ⎢0 m ⎢ 0 0 0⎥ 0 0 ⎥ 2 ⎢ ⎥ ⎢ 0 100 0 M =⎢0 0 m3 0 0⎥=⎢ 0 0 100 0 0 ⎥ kN . sec 2 / m ⎥ ⎢ ⎢ ⎥ 0 0 m4 0 ⎥ ⎢ 0 0 0 100 0 ⎥ ⎢0 ⎢ 0 0 0 m5 ⎥ 0 0 0 100⎥ ⎦ ⎣ 0 ⎦ ⎢ ⎣0
Determination of stiffness matrix: The stiffness matrix of shear frame can be determined by applying a unit displacement to each story alternately and evaluation the resulting story forces. Because the beams are infinitely rigid comparison to columns; then the story forces can easily be determined by adding the side-sway stiffness of the appropriates stories which equal in this case to the total sum of columns stiffness of that stories.

In shear frame as defined previously the stiffness of column with two ends fixed against 12 EI c rotation is given by: Kc = h3 Where ( h ) is the story height, and ( I c ) is the moment of inertia of column's section given by:

a × a3 0.6 × 0.63 Ic = where a = 0.60m ⇒ I c = = 0.0108 m 4 12 12 The stiffness of the story is given by: 24 EI c 24 × 2 × 106 × 0.0108 K i = ∑ K c = 2.K c = = = 19200 kN / m h3 33

where K1 , K 2 , K 3 , K 4 and K 5 = K i the entire stiffness of the story. • Natural vibration frequencies and corresponding vibration mode shapes: Based on the dynamics of structures theory, the natural vibration frequencies and corresponding mode shapes can be determined by solve the equation: [ K − ω 2 M ]Φ = 0 This equation is called an eigenvalue problem. The quantities ω 2 are the eigenvalues indicating the square of free vibration frequencies, while the corresponding displacement vectors Φ represent the corresponding mode of vibrating system known as the eigenvectors or mode shapes. Hence a nontrivial solution is possible Φ ≠ 0 only when the determinant K − ω 2 M equal to zero (due to Cramer's rule). Expanding the determinant will give an algebraic equation of the Nth degree in the frequency parameter ω 2 for a system having N degrees of freedom. 2 2 The N roots of this equation (ω12 , ω 2 , ω32 , ... , ω N ) represent the frequencies of the N modes of vibration which are possible in the system. The mode having the lowest frequency is called the first mode or the fundamental mode, the next higher frequency is the second mode, etc.

It is easily to solve this problem by using MATLAB (Mathematical Programming Language), where mathematically we can write: [Φ, Ω] = eig (inv( M ) × K ) Where Ω is the vector of square of frequencies.
