After reaching the maximum load value. with frequent increase in resistance. The structure. therefore. Although the phenomenon will be described in complete detail later. but due to the ductility of steel. a zone of yielding develops at the first critical section. Elsewhere the structure is elastic and the ‘peak ’ moment values are less than yield. In cmventional elastic design practice. zmes of yielding are formed at other sections until the moment capacity has been exhausted at all necessary critical sections.

property of steel, which (as already mentioned) sets it apart from other structural materials, is the amazing ductility which it possesses. This is characterized by Fig. 2 which shows in somewhat idealized form the stressstrain properties of steel in the initial portion of the curve. In Fig. 3 are shown partial tensile stressstrain curves for a number of different steels. Note that when the elastic limit is reached, elongations from 8 to 15 times the elastic limit take place without any decrease in load. Afterwards some increase in strength is exhibited as the material strain hardens. 4.2 Although th; first application of plastic design is to structures fabricated of structural grade steel, it is not less applicable to steels of

Even in plastic design, at ultimate load the critical strains will not have exceeded percentage elongation of about 1.5. Thus, the use of ultimate load as the design criterion still leaves available a major portion of the reserve ductility of steel which may be used as an added margin of safety. This maximum strain of 1.5 percent is a strain at ultimate load >n the structure not at working load. In most cases under working load the strains will still be below the elastic limit.

This is because the ultimate load capacity of a simple beam is but 10 to 15 percent greater than the hypothetical yield point. spreading of supports. such procedures have tended to overemphasize the importance of stress rather than strength as a guide in engineering design and have introduced a complexity that now seems unnecessary for a large number of structures. are the magnitudes of the stresses really important ? 7.

While theoretically possible. in order further consideration of maximum strength as the design must be other advantages.

It should be borne in mind that plastic analysis has not generally been used as a basis for determining these particular design rules and as a result the socalled elastic stress formulas have been devised in a rather haphazard fashion. they simply provide an index for structura’ design.4 Such examples are the following and are listed in two categories: (a) factors that are neglected . at points of bearing: 7) Overstress Nonuniform stressdistribution in splices. the stresses that are calculated for design purposes are not true maximum stresses at all. similar structures so designed shows that this is a safe procedure. arising from the ‘ cantilever ’ 9) Difference in stressdistribution as compared with the ‘ portal’ method of wind stress analysis . as the design criterion.

The objective of this Section is to describe brie5y the fundamental principles upon which plastic analysis rests and then to describe how these principles are used in analyzing continuous beams and frames.1 With the evidence presented in Section B that fullsize structures behave as predicted by plastic theory and having considered in Section C the plastic behaviour of beams.

Although the plastic design procedures do not require a direct use of these principles (or assumptions) they will be stated for background purposes. one that is arrived at by drawing a statical moment diagram that does not violate the plastic moment condition will either be correct or too low. then the solution is in fact the correct one. When both theorems have been satisfied in any given problem. *Reference 21 contains m excellent discussionofthe principle virtual diaof 51 .* Application of this equation will be demonstrated in 18.

However. Since ‘ uniform section throughout ’ may not be the most economical solution. so it is not a matter that is unique to design on the basis of ultimate load. In design. Some general principles are as follows: a) In the event the critical mechanism is an ’ independent ’ one. will enable him to make a preliminary economic choice of relative moment strength without too many trials. a few simple techniques will occur to the designer which. the structure may not perform its intended function due to ‘ premature ’ failure. 77 . a discussion of the general design procedure will outline the steps involved in a plastic design. this problem exists in elastic design. Finally. The pu of this section is to consider certain features involved in the appYe ‘cation of these metho& to actual design. Given a certain set of loads the problem is to select suitable members. GENERAL TO DESIGN 20. some guide is needed for selecting the ratio or ratios of plastic moment strength of the various members. 213 Of course. This suggests that a more efficient choice of moment ratios may be made such that the critical mechanism is a ‘ cornposite mechanism ’ involving plastic hinges in several different members.

Similarly. and resistance to side loadsp. and that the columns be proportioned to provide the needed joint moment balance.

Examination of alternate possibilities is desirable. the following six steps will be a part of practically every design: a) Determine possible loading conditions.

It will be recognized that the single curvature loading condition places the mid height of the column in the most critical loading condition. this may occur if the column strength has been increased adequately to assure that any necessary hinges will form in the adjoining beams. Plastic design is also applicable to structures with partially welded (top plate) or with riveted 95 . at corners the connections must change the direction of the forces. d) Single curvature with unequal end moments.1972 As already implied. 23. Also. the failure load of a column and its ability to transmit plastic moments are dependent upon the loading conditions. Points of maximum moment usually occur at connections: and further. if a hinge were assumed to form in one or both ends of the column. that connection will develop and subsequently maintain the required moment.

1972 and I. Since the use of a haunch will automatically cut down on the span length. although the designer may find more frequent demand for the types shown in the figure. . Generally the use of a diagonal stiffener with a thickness equal to that of the rolled section will be adequate and not unduly wasteful of material.

A frame with straight connections will have larger rolled members.Haunched connections are the product of the elastic design concept by which material is placed in conformrty with the moment diagram to achieve greatest possible economy. On the other hand.3 Hatinched Connections . . a frame with haunches is more flexible on the one hand because of the lighter members.6. Analysis and test have shown all of them to be suitable in design. 23. the designer might just as well realize the additional savings in the material. If a haunch is to be specified for architectural considerations. It is difficult to generalize with regard to comparative deflections as between a frame designed with haunches and one without them. tending to decrease frame flexibility.(59a) Design Examples will be found in Section F. whereas builtup members would otherwise be needed. .. Four types of haunched connections are shown in Fig. but is stiffer on the other hand because of the deeper haun. in plastic design (through redistribution of moment) material is used to full capacity without necessity for use of haunches..SP: 6(6) . In one comparisorP a plastically designed frame with straight connections was actually stiffener than the corresponding elastic design in which haunches were used. than a smaller rolled shape should be possible in a plasticallydesigned structure. . 51.
therefore. and no rotation capacity is required because all plastic deformation occurs in the rolled sections joined. the the same principles methods as those for computing deflections described in 23. Adequate bending strength in the strong direction is only one of the strength requirements. a method of suitable simplicity should be available for computing the maximum In a recently completed report available methods are comshear stress. 51(b). and. Similarly. a larger amount of energy can be released by buckling. generally be quite similar to those knees may exhibit poor rotation This is due to inelastic local and/or lateral buckling. Curved knees have been treated in Ref 32 and the results of this work have been applied to conventional design procedures in Ref 29. This is accompiished by requiring that the haunch proper remain elastic throughout. 102 . and in so far as normal stresses are concerned. The other is that it does not ‘ kick out ’ or buckle laterally prior to reaching the design condition. the analysis problem is to have a method for predicting the maximum flange stress due to the applied loading. Thus the flange thickness should be increased to meet the demands of the applied plastic moment. The requirement that the connection remain elastic is. The report also compares the results with tests. *Normally this check is required only for type shown in Fig. Haunched capacityr4. The solution is to force the formation of the plastic hinge to occur at the end of the haunch. it was found that the method of Olander was quite reasonable. would embody The design requirements will for straight corners. It is still necessary to force hinge formation at the extremeties of the haunch and thus a further increase of flange thickness appears necessary. it cannot be laterally supported along the full length. The tendency for this mode of failure is greater than in the straight connections because in the haunched knees the stress distribution is more nearly uniform along the compression flange.SP: 6(6) . 52). ther’efore. Therefore.1972 The analysis of a frame with haunched connections involves no new principles. Also the knee web should have adequate thickness to prevent general plastic shear*. secondly. pared. The effect of the haunches is to increase the number of sections at which plastic hinges may form. Stiffness is automatically provided in a great majority of cases. of considerable advantage.9. For tapered haunches the design problem will be to find the required thickness of inner flange of the haunch to assure hinge formation at the extremities (locations A and C of Fig. but otherwise the procedures are the same as before.

A theoretical study and experimental investigation are nearing completion on this aspect of the problem. the results suggest that an increase of 50 percent in flange thickness requirements should lead to a safe design. 53. Use Rule 9 to check web thickness (adequate to resist shear forces). then: Rule 11 Haunched Connections .6. 23. For curved knees the inner flange thickness is to be 50 percent greater than required by the rules of Ref 29. In summary. The function of the ‘ Top ’ and the ‘ Interior ’ connections is to transmit moment from the left to the right beam.1972 FIG. the 103 .

experience with tests of rolled members under normal loading conditions (but with many ‘ adverse circumstances ’ present that might be expected to lead to failures) has not revealed premature brittle fractures of steel beams. at ultimate load the shear stress would be limited to 1760 kgf/cms. no single easy rule is available to the designer. How can we be sure that brittle fracture will not be a problem even if the suggestions mentioned above are followed ? While no positive guarantee is possible. punched holes in tension zones and the use of sheared edges are not permitted. Thus: a) The proper material should be specified to meet the appropriate service conditions.SP: 6(6) . In plastic design the engineer should be guided by the same principles that govern the proper design of an allwelded structure designed by conventional methods. And although hundreds of articles have been published on the problem of brittle fracture. it is exceedingly important to assure that such failure does not occur. beam joining the left flange of the column.

But it is an equally important aspect of conventional elastic d&n when applied to fullywelded continuous structures. Such severe cold working exhausts the ductility of the material. c) Design details should be such that the material is as free to deform as possible. The geometry should be examined so that triaxial states of tensile stress will be avoided. In this regard.7 Brittle Fracture Since brittle fracture would prevent the formation of a plastic hinge. As has already been pointed out in previous sections the assumption of ductility is important in conventional design and numerous. For rivets in shear. b) The fabrication and workmanship should meet high standards.1972 e) Bolts in the splice just over the column would be in sufficient number to transmit the necessary shear to the column. the use of fully continuous welded construction in actual practice today has not resulted in .design assumptions rely upon it. For this purpose the tension value of a rivet would be computed on the basis of a yield stress of 2 540 kg/cm2. 23. connections could be propor23.5. The exact number would depend upon the number of bolts that would be required for the ISLB 350. In the past years the failures of ships and pressure vessels have focussed attention on the importance of this problem.
In design. Loss of deflection stability by progressive deformation is characterized by the behaviour shown in Fig. after a few cycles the deflection will P stabilize at a constant maximum value and thereafter the behaviour will be elastic.. it may be shown theoretically that a different mode of ’ failure ’ may occur. to insure weldability and toughness at lowest service temperature. .

On the other hand if the variable load is equal to or less than . the following guides are suggested: Rule 13 Structural Ductility Ordinary structural grade steel for bridges and buildings may be used with modifications. triaxial states restraints should be avoided. In the large majority of practical cases this is true. if the major part of the loading may be completely removed from the structure and reapplied at frequent intervals. The question is. It is characterized by loss of deflection stability in the sense that under repeated applications of a certain sequence of load.1972 failures. Punched and reamed holes for connecting devices would be permitted if the reaming removes the coldworked material. However. Sheared edges and punched holes in tension flanges are not permitted. then. when needed. Fabrication processes should be such as to promote ductility. methods are available for solvipg for the stabilizing load. and factors that are otherwise neglected in design have most certainly caused plastic deformations in many parts of such structures. 58. even though it sustains each application of load. then the deflections P tend to increase for each cycle. and the P . If the load is variable and repeated and is greater than the stabilizing load. . Summarizing. does the progressive deflection stop after a few cycles (does it ’ shake down ‘) or does the deflection continue indefinitely ? If it continues.Up to this point the tacit assumption has been made that the ultimate load is independent of the sequence in which the various loads are applied to the structure. One would also suppose that a certain degree of fluctuation in the magnitude of the different loads would be tolerable so long as the number of cycles did not approach values normally associated with fatigue... an increment of plastic deformation in the same sense may occur during each cycle of loading. the structure is ‘ unstable ’ from a deflection point of view.
and thus the live plus dead load would probably never reach P. could not be assumed to exhaust the fullvalue of the factor of safety .Plasticdesign is intended for cases normally considered as ‘ static’ loading.1972 DEFLECTIONc FIG. however. Variation in live load.. the load factor of safety is made up of many factors other than possible increase in load (such as variation in material properties and dimensions. thiswill not be necessary in the large majority of cases.. etc).

because in most cases a structure designed for ultimate loading by the plastic method will actually deflect no more at working loads (which are nearly always in the elastic range) than a structure designed according to ‘ elastic ’ specifications. Fig. For example. DEFLECTION DESIGN BEAMS FIG. 23.

(In Ref 9. and thus the last hinge. our needs involving deflection computation may be satisfied with approximations and they fall into two categories: a) Determination of approximde magnitude of aS$ection at ultimate loadThe load factor of safety does not preclude the rare overload. a few examples will demonstrate that a simpler method is available: calculate the deflection on the assumption that each hinge. the slopedeflection equations may be used to solve for relative deflection of segments of the structure.

Further.1 Dejection at Ultimate LoadThe socalled ‘ hinge method ’ (discussed in the references mentioned above) gives a reasonably precise approximation to the loaddeflection curve and affords a means for estimating the deflection at ultimate load. 17) which means that each span retains its elastic flexural rigidity (El) for the whole segment between sections at which plastic hinges are located. even though such calculations will rarely be required. the design requirements may limit deflection at this load. The analysis neglects catenary forces (which tend to decrease deflection and increase strength) and secondorder effects (which tend to increase deflection and decrease strength). The correct deflection at ultimate load is the maximum value obtained from the various trials. the nomenclature being as shown in Fig.In certain cases. although ’ kinks ’ form at the other hinge sections. Therefore. just as the structure attains the computed ultimate load. 60 with clockwise moment and angle change being positive: The only remaining question is: which hinge is the last to form ?

23.9.3 Rotation Capacity In order that a structure attains the computed ultimate load, it is necessary for redistribution of moment to .occur. As pointed out in 15 this is only possible if the plastic moment is maintaiued at the first hinge to form while hinges are developing elsewhere in the structure. The term ‘ rotation capacity ’ characterizes this ability of a structural member to absorb rotations at nearmaximum (plastic) It is evident that certain factors such as instability and moment. fracture may limit the rotation capacity of a section; and one might anticipate having to calculate the amount of required rotation in any given problem to meet the particular limitation. This would seriously complicate plastic design. However, computations of the required rotation angle (called ‘ hinge rotation ‘) are normally not required in design, since the foregoing rules of practice will assure that structural joints possess it in adequate meaIn setting up the procedure for safeguarding against local buckling sure. (Rule 3) it was specified that the section should not buckle until the supplied in extreme fibre strain had reached cd. The hinge rotation this case is about 12 (EJQ= 12); this value is sufficient to meet most practical structural requirements. The procedure for computing the hinge rotation at a plastic hinge in a given structure is based directly on the methods for computing deflections at ultimate load. It has been illustrated in Ref 9 and the problem has been treated in Rcf 31.

DESIGN EXAMPLES 24. INTRODUCTION 24.1 This section will treat actual design problems for the purpose of illustrating the principles of plastic design. In addition to obtaining the required section following the general procedures laid down in 21 and 22, each design will be examined in the light of the ‘secondary each clz+.igsigur~onsiderations ’ (Section B). In the process of analyzing short cut ’ methods will not be used. Instead, each problem will be ’ worked by a direct and complete plastic analysis. The experienced designer will, of course, want to use all possible techniques to shorten the design time, but at this stage the objective is to illustrate the principles. The available ‘shortcuts’ for speeding up the design process will be treated in Section G. Just as in conventional elastic design where the engineer has available various formulas, tables and charts with which to analyze standard cases, so also it has been possible to arrange convenient design aids for the rapid selection of member sizes. In arriving at a final section size it will be noticed that a table of Zvalues has been used: when the required Mpvalue has been determined, Z is computed and Table 4 is used to select the section. An alternate procedure that would save a step in the calculations is to arrange the sections according to iV*values instead of Zvalues. This limits the use of the table, however, to a single value of the yield stress level my. Still another method would be to use the presently available tables of section modulus, S. This would involve a guess as to the proper value of the shape factor, f, a value that would be corrected, if necessary, in the final step. The load factor of safety has been discussed in 22. A value of 1.85 is used for dead load plus live load and a value of 1.40 for these loads plus wind or earthquake forces. As a convenience for later reference, the examples are all worked figures or ‘ plates ‘, the discussion of the steps being included in the text. 25.

throughout. It develops that the end span is critical and, therefore, it is not possible to determine by statics alone the moments and reactions for the three central spans. The semigraphical construction demonstrates that the plastic moment is not exceeded so the selection of the ISLB 600, will provide adequate bending strength. A precise determination of the reactions at ultimate load would require an elastic analysis. They are computed in this problem, however, on the assumption that the load on the interior span 35 is divided evenly between the two supports 3 and 5, 30.06 t being distributed to each. Actually the shear in span 3 to 5 does not vary too much and should fall somewhere between values that would correspond to the two limiting conditions indicated by Cases I and II in the portion of the moment diagram replotted. Thus, V,, may vary between the assumed value of 30.06 t (Case I in the sketch) and which would be obtained from Condition II (30*06+% = 32.86 t).
The maximum shear (35.22 t to the left of support 3) is well within the permitted value of 79.7 t for this shape. But when the crosssectional proportions are checked it is found that d/w = 57.14~55 (permissible). Hence it is recommended that an ISMB 550 be used. It is checked that the crosssectional proportions for this profile is adequate. With regard to bracing, the structure is assumed to be enclosed. Thus the top flange is continuously braced. Vertical plates are supplied at section 2 to provide some torsional restraint to the beam, Splices for shear only will be adequate at the indicated sections. At a distance of 2.5 m from the support (at the indicated points), a small variation from the actual point of inflection is not of serious consequence to loadcarrying capacity. Whether or not the deflection calculation would be made depends on the design conditions. The greatest deflection will be in the end spans and will probably not be far from the value 2.9 cm for the case of the indicated approximation.

This completes the design of the frame which is shown in sketch 1.1972 The ’ design ’ of the haunch details is controlled in part by the initial choice of dimensions. the columns and haunches could be shopassembled with a field splice at Section 7. the haunch fabrication expense should be borne in mind when making comparison of overall costs. a splice for full moment using highstrength bolts could be made at Section 7 or bolted splices for less than full moment strength could be supplied at a section near the point of inflection (haunch in sketch 2). The web is selected at 1. 151 . . It is of iuterest to compare the results of this design with the elastic solution and with the plastic solution for the case where no haunch has been used.

The value k. The solution for Mechanism 1 is made on the basis that Mechanisms 1 and 2 form simultaneously. there are four possible independent mechanisms and these are shown in sketches b. A value of k. the joints being fixed against rotation but the frame theoretically free to sway. the load factor of safety is 1. . For greatest economy the end columns should provide full restraint to the beams. The moment check as shown in sketch e reveals that the moment is nowhere greater than Mp and thus the solution is correct for this loading condition. Therefore. is thus determined as 4.33 t/m.8 m. The frame is redundant to the third degree (X = 3). The distributed load becomes 3. There are 7 possible plastic hinges. Frame) In this design example an industrial flame will be designed to carry a vertical load of 1 800 kg/m and a horizontal side load of 900 kg/m. The resulting ratio is therefore the basis for later analysis of the frame. The computation of reactions at ultimate load dompletes the first analysis. for the interior column may be determined by considering equilibrium of joint 678 (sketch c). and therefore the plastic moment values are made equal to the appropriate beam values. The dotted lines shown in sketch a are simply an aid towards keeping the signs straight positive moment produces tension on the side of the beam next to the dotted lint There are two possible loading conditions. As shown in sketch a the column height is 5 m.2 m. Opportunity will be afforded in this twospan frame to illustrate the ’ preliminary design ’ procedures for estimating plastic moment ratios. The structure is now analyzed for Case I loading. Distributed load will be treated as such. the horizontal load being half this value. The mechanism method will be used to analyze the various loading conditions. equal to 3 is obtained. Consequently ikl* is determined as 20. In order to determine the plastic moment ratio for the rafters. and the right span is 30 m. the beams are considered as fixed ended as shown in sketch b. Actually tne analysis was completed in the previous step but we will go through the various operations. For this special condition.85.

If it had been desirable to analyze Mechanism 5 and determine the precise location of plastic hinges this could either be done graphically. The solution for Mechanism 5. 2.8 m..t which is less than Mp.t. would be set equal to 0.5 m. M = 66.74 m.

Thus. To the left of Section 9.4 m.1972 The analysis for Case II is then performed to see whether or not the plastic moment values determined will be adequate.5 m. The following equation in terms of xl and xa would be differentiated partially in respect to x. To the left of Section 5. the solution for this mechanism assumed that hinges formed in mid span. by trial and error. Mp being slightly/larger than 16.5 m. Although it is less than the value of 20. Therefore. will be used. In further explanation of this moment check..M.SP:6(6) . ‘x1 in sketch d was made equal to LX/2 and xs = L.t. no precise consideration of distributed load is necessary. and with respect to x. we shall expect in the fvst place that the plastic moment condition will be violated in each of the rafters because of our initial assumption that plastic hinges formed at midspan (locations 5 and 9)... Incidentally.t. the moment is greater than the plastic moment value near the centre of the two rafters.and similarly for span B10. The solution for Mechanism 4 (sketch C) shows that M+ is so much less than the value determined for Mechanism 1 that no further consideration of this mechanism is necessary. Using the equation for beam 46 it is found that M. We may..

The moment check is completed by using the equilibrium equations. The moment check gives a possible equilibrium configuration as shown in sketch f (page 165). As expected. if the analysis were completed on the basis of a precise determination of the values x1 and x.

Sufficient information is thus available for dr_awing the moment diagram. therefore.t) therefore controls the design. or by maximizing the required M..t.

In evaluating the crosssection proportions it is found that the sections have b/t ratio of less than 17 and thereforesatisfactory. The designer could eitherplace an additional brace part way down the column or could check the hinge rotation at Section 4 to see ifit was as severe as assumed in the theory. and the beams are adequate because the horizontal thrusts less than the vertical ones. In proportioning the diagonal stiffenerfor Connection 4 (ISLB 350). are All members are satisfactory as far as shear force is concerned. the smallest r. the member is so lightthat the initial choice willbe based on a diagonal with thickness equal to that of the rolled section flange. the purlin spacing is selected as 2 m and the girt spacing as 1. . The ISLB 600 isfound to have inadequate d/w ratio. the selection of required section willbe made on the basis of the M values thus deterB and column mined. particularly since the centre column provides a restraining moment that is considerably greater than the required value of 2 183.(lO) Since Case I (with& w&d) is the critical con&on. Concerning the problem of lateral bracing. a 12mm plate is specified..15. In checking Rule 1 for axial force in the members. A slenderness ratio of 63.2 cma is required.

He has suggested that the application of plastic design to such structures depends on the relative importance of horizontal forces. As will be noted below. In fact. As already mentioned.or threestorey structure. however. the moment capacity of columns with relatively high axial load drops rapidly. be a savings in a plastic design. Weiskopf has discussed the application of plastic design to multistorey structures. to take the next step. our attention has been restricted to onestorey structures consisting of rectangular and gabled portal frames and to the multispan frames that are typical of the industrialtype buildings to which plastic A fair quantity of steel. the columns become more and more highly loaded. and perhaps the most important. Secondly. If horizontal forces are not a consideration (they may be so small that an ordinary masonry wall panel would carry any such small forces that might exist). as the number of stories increases. has remarked : ‘it seems natural. it is most advantageous to document the necessary provisions which will enable the engineer to apply plastic design to the industrial building. emphasizing the tier building type. In a stimulating and thoughtprovoking article36. the outlook is heartening for at least a limited application of plastic analysis. the construction of multistorey structures. b) Horizontal forces carried 4 Those cases in which the bracing around elevator be largely influenced by what is done forces.

What is the reason that our attention has been restricted to the singlestorey building ? First of all.1972 27.
The columns. Numerous design recommendations have been made in Section E that are directly applicable to multistorey buildings. and as already mentioned. As far as the tall building is concerned. The critical sections in that case are at the ends. further studies would be needed. maximum continuity with minimum added connection material can often be achieved by the use of welding. In those cases the vertical load in the columns would be relatively low and would be governed by considerations already described for the previous examples. The top one or two stories might be designed by a ‘ complete ’ plastic analysis. would be proportioned according to conventional (elastic) methods. It is for the third case in which the horizontal forces are carried by crossbracing that a plastic design approach seems possible. the area of possible application of plastic design is dependent to the greatest extent on further research because plastic hinges might form in the columns. When provision is made for wind bracing in wall panels. On the other hand. In riveted work it is very difficult to design a connection of strecgth equal to that of the beams unless large brackets are used. Such columns are better able to develop plastic hinges than columns loaded in single curvature. none of the plastic hingis participate in the resistance to side load. the beam and girders would be proportioned for full (plastic) continuity.1972 The application of plastic design to Cases (a) and (c) above will simply consist of a plastic analysis of continuous beams. The use of highstrength bolts offers another method of achieving continuity.SP: 6(6) . Such load is all carried by the diagonal bracing. more needs to be known about the performance of columns under high axial load and as part of a framework. The problem of the connection for tier buildings also relates to the ability of these components to form plastic hinges. As has already been emphasized. the maximum moment then occurs at the midheight of the member. in tall buildings the columns will usually be bent in double curvature with a point of inflection (zero moment) near the middle of the mernber. on the other hand. Therefore. the column problem actually may not be as severe as first intimated. The most critical loading condition on a column is one which subjects it to equal end moments producing single curvature. if riveting were to be used to achieve continuity at connections in a plastical!y designed structure and without the use of these large brackets. For the second conditions (horizontal forces resisted by moment connections). By this procedure. 179 . hinges forming both in the columns and in the beams. The only mechanisms are the beam mechanisms.
C.Therefore only thiscondition will be illustrated. and to revise the design (upward) to suit the precise plastic moment requirement. 1. on the one hand. and D will occur.. but. An example willnow be given of the plastic design of a twostorey building in which crossbracing isnot used. 2. a twostorey. The side loads. twospan building frame is designed to support the loads shown in sketch a.. the design of some of the connections also will be examined. A study of all possible loading conditions shows that case I (dead load +lus live gravity load) is critical. it would have been possible to assume that plastic hinges formed in the centre of each beam span.SP: 6(6) .hould be 1*7i Mp. The solutions for the various mechanisms are worked in tabular form. produce equivalent overturning moment about the bottom of the columns of the particularstorey. to treat the load as uniformly distributed. it is found that for Span A the plastic moment value s. the plastic moment ratio of the different members are selected such that simultaneous failure of beams A.

All beam mechanisms give the same answera check on the accuracy of the selection of Mpratios.

A result of the moment check given above and shown in sketches c and Q is that the fixed bases are not required for this problem. is at the full plastic value 25. any small value would be reasonable at this stage.

SECTION G SIMPLIFIED 28. INTRODUCTION 28.1 One of the advantages of plastic design is that the engineer is able to complete the analysis in less time than required by conventional (elastic) procedures. It is possible, however, to shorten the design time even further, by taking advantage of the same technique that is used in conventional design and one that is frequently used whenever a procedure becomes timeconsuming. The solution of frequentlyencountered standard cases may be given as a. formula or in chart form. Such an opportunity is open to the engineer interested in plastic design. In this section some techniques will be described and certain The presentation is by no means a complete one. of them illustrated. Indeed, the ingenuity of engineers will undoubtedly lead them to develop many other such design aids. PROCEDURES

of caution:
a) Since superposition does not hold in plastic analysis, generally it is not possible to combine two separate solutions as is done so commonly in elastic design. Any ’ formula ’ or ‘ chart ’ can only assist in the solution of the particular loading and geometry for which it was developed. b) Even though the formulas and charts are carrect in themselves, it is a good rule to check the plastic moment condition by drawing the moment diagram. In this way one is assured of the correct answer. The simplified procedures which apply to continuous beams are discussed in 29. This will include a tabulation of solutions for various loading conditions. Formulas for the rapid determination of the required plastic moment for singlespan frames with pinned bases are given in 30. The use of charts for the same purpose is also described there. Finally, in 31 the solution of problems involving multispan frames are discussed. 29. CONTINUOUS BEAMS

The table is patterned after similar tables contained in Ref 13. 30. At Lehigh University. The virtual work equations can be expressed as a formula which would reflect both the frame geometry and the loading conditions. In addition to the reaction and Mpvalues for these standard cases. L. 66 (see Appendix C) are given ’ beam diagrams and formulas ’ for certain loading conditions on beams. Alternatively curves may be prepared which present the solution in chart form. Ref 47 makes use of both the ’ formula’ and the ’ chart approach and in thisaspect is based substantially on Ketter’s ’ work. . 471) In order to simplify the form of the solution a parameter C is introduced whichis a function of the magnitude of the overturning moment. Dr Rober.1 Two approaches are possible in simplifying the procedure for the solution of singlespan frames. For simplicity the horizontal distributed load is replaced by a concentrated load. acting at the eaves. A few illustrations will be given. 67 (see Appendix C) shows a gabled frame with uniformly distributed vertical and horizontal loading. Eventually values for deflection at ultimate load (8. the position of plastic hinges and points of inflection are indicated. The method of derivation and some examples are contained in Ref 46. It is determined from: 188 .1972 engineer may wish to avail himself of tables and solution of continuous beam problems.

One of the important contributions of Ref 18 was that it developed methods of correlating the critical length for lateral buckling with the magnitude of required hinge rotation. that the resulting further inelastic hinge rotation thus available is relatively small. This appendis is to outline the procedure for checking the adequacy cf the spacing of bracing to prevent lateral buckling. it is unlikely that the resulting critical would allow much inelastic rotation . the resulting critical 198 . the work of Ref 18. in . however.SP: 6(6) .1972 APPENDIX (Clause 23.

While thismight be reasonable for a section that was only called bracing upon to support Mp. assumptions were made with regard to various factors that influence lateral buckling strength. In preparing the figure. namely. what is the lateral buckling strength of an elasticplastic segment of a member that has been called upon to absorb varying amounts of rotation at the plastic hinge ? Secondly. Equation 51 not only assures that the crosssection will be able to plastify (develop the full plastic moment) but also be able to rotate through a sufficient inelastic angle change to assure that all necessary plastic hinges ~111 develop. There will be considered first the matter of lateral buckling of an Figure 64 represents an approximation to elasticplasticbeam segment.
