Abstract

A new set of slope-deflection equations for Timoshenko beamcolumns of symmetrical cross section with semi-rigid connections that include

the combined effects of shear and bending deformations, and second-order axial load effects are developed in a classical manner. The proposed

method that also includes the effects of the shear component of the applied axial force as the member deflects laterally (Haringx Model) has the

following advantages: (1) it can be utilized in the stability and second-order analyses of framed structures made up of Timoshenko beamcolumns

with rigid, semi-rigid, and simple end connections; (2) the effects of semi-rigid connections are condensed into the slope-deflection equations for

tension or compression axial loads without introducing additional degrees of freedom and equations; (3) it is more accurate than any other method

available and capable of capturing the phenomena of buckling under axial tension forces; and (4) it is powerful, practical, versatile and easy to

teach. Analytical studies indicate that shear deformations increase the lateral deflections and reduce the critical axial loads of framed structures

made of members with low shear stiffness. The effects of shear deformations must be considered in the analysis of beamcolumns with relatively

low effective shear areas (like laced columns, columns with batten plates or with perforated cover plates, and columns with open webs) or with

low shear stiffness (like elastomeric bearing and short columns made of laminated composites with low shear modulus G when compared to their

elastic modulus E) making the shear stiffness GAs of the same order of magnitude as EI/L 2 . The shear effects are also of great importance in the

static, stability and dynamic behavior of laminated elastomeric bearings used for seismic isolation of buildings. Four comprehensive examples are

included that show the effectiveness of the proposed method and equations.

1. Introduction

The slope-deflection method represents a turning point in

the evolution and development of the matrix stiffness method

as it is known today (Samuelsson and Zienkiewicz [1]). It was

presented in 1915 by Wilson and Maney [2] in a Bulletin from

the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign as a general

method to be used in the analysis of beam structures with rigidjoints subjected to transverse loads.

The slope-deflection method may be used to analyze all

types of statically indeterminate beams and frames. The

classic slope-deflection equations are derived by means of

the momentarea theorems considering deformation caused by

and axial forces. Basically, a number of simultaneous equations

are formed with the unknowns taken as the angular rotations

and displacements of each joint. Once these equations have

been solved, the moments at all joints may be determined.

The method is simple to explain and apply since it is

based on the equilibrium of the joints and members. The

classic slope-deflection method is generally taught in the

introductory structural analysis courses (Norris and Wilbur [3],

Kassimili [4]) and used in the structural design (Salmon and

Johnson [5]) because it provides a clear perspective and a

complete understanding of how the internal moments and the

corresponding deformations are interrelated, both of which are

essential in structural engineering.

However, advances in composite materials of high resilience

capacities and low shear stiffness as well as the need for lighter

the shear effects and second-order analysis of framed structures.

For instance, elastomeric seismic isolators and members

made of light polymer materials may undergo extremely

large deflections under combined axial and transverse loads

without exceeding their elastic limit. The slope-deflection

equations for Timoshenko beams including the effects of shear

deformations and transverse loads were developed by Bryan

and Baile [6]. Previously, Lin, Glauser and Johnson [7] had

developed the slope-deflection equations for laced and battened

beamcolumns including the effects of shear deformations,

axial load and end rigid stay plates. On the other hand, the

stability and second-order analysis of slender beamcolumns

and of framed structures with semi-rigid connections has been

investigated by Aristizabal-Ochoa [8,9] using the classical

stability functions. However, the stability of framed structures

known yet.

The main objective of this publication is to present a new

set of slope-deflection equations for the stability and secondorder analysis of framed structures made of Timoshenko

beamcolumns of symmetrical cross section with semi-rigid

connections under end loads including the combined effects

of: (1) bending and shear deformations; and (2) the shear

component of the applied axial forces (Haringxs Model).

The proposed method which is based on the modified

stability functions for Timoshenko beamcolumns with semirigid connections (Aristizabal-Ochoa [10,11]) has the following

advantages: (1) the effects of semi-rigid connections are

condensed into the slope-deflection equations for tension or

compression axial loads without introducing additional degrees

of freedom and equations; (2) it is more accurate than any

other method available and capable of capturing the phenomena

of buckling under axial tension forces of short columns like

laminated elastomeric bearings commonly used for seismic

isolation of buildings; and (3) the method is powerful, practical,

versatile and easy to teach. Four comprehensive examples are

included that show the effectiveness of the proposed method

and corresponding equations.

2. Structural model

Assumptions. Consider a 2-D prismatic beamcolumn that

connects points A and B as shown in Fig. 1a. The element

is made up of the beamcolumn itself A0 B0 , and the flexural

connections AA0 and BB0 with bending stiffness a and b at

ends A and B, respectively. It is assumed that the beamcolumn

A0 B0 of span L bends about the principal axis of its cross section

with a moment of inertia I , effective shear area As and: (1) is

made of a homogeneous linear elastic material with Young and

shear moduli E and G, respectively; (2) its centroidal axis is

a straight line; and (3) is loaded at extremes A and B with P

(compressive axial load is +) along its centroidal axis.

The flexural connections have stiffnesses a and b (whose

units are in forcedistance/radian) in the plane of bending of

b /(EI/L) are denoted as the stiffness indices of the flexural

connections. These indices vary from zero (i.e., Ra = Rb = 0)

for simple connections (i.e., pinned) to infinity (i.e., Ra = Rb =

) for fully restrained connections (i.e., rigid). Notice that the

proposed algorithm can be utilized in the inelastic analysis of

beamcolumns when the inelastic behavior is concentrated at

the connections. This can be carried out by updating the flexural

stiffness of the connections a and b for each load increment

in a linear-incremental fashion.

For convenience the following two parameters are introduced:

connections, both the fixity factor and the rigidity index R

are zero; but for rigid connections, the fixity factor is 1 and the

rigidity index is infinity. Since the fixity factor can only vary

from 0 to 1 for elastic connections (while the rigidity index R

may vary form 0 to ), it is more convenient to use in the

elastic analysis of structures with semi-rigid connections.

3. Proposed slope-deflection equations

In order to investigate the lateral stability and second-order

analysis of framed structures with semi-rigid connections, it is

first necessary to establish the relationships between the end

bending moments and the corresponding rotations for each

frame member and then apply the conditions of compatibility

of deformations at each joint. The application of classic slopedeflection method in the stability of plane frames (with rigid

connections and without transverse loads and shear deflection

effects) is well explained by Salmon and Johnson ([5], pp.

835843). The proposed slope-deflection equations for plane

frames with semi-rigid connections including shear deflection

effects and without transverse loads along each member are as

follows:

where a and b values are the rotations of ends A and B

measured with respect to the initial axis of the member, and

/L the angle of rotation of the cord of the member AB. Both

rotations and end moments (Ma and Mb ) are positive clockwise

as shown in Fig. 1. Saa , Sab , Sba and Sbb are denoted as the

stiffness coefficients of the Timoshenko beamcolumn AB with

semi-rigid connections at both ends A and B. These coefficients

are listed below for easy reference.

Notice that the proposed method and corresponding

equations listed above are valid for beamcolumns subjected to

tension and compression axial forces. When 2 is negative (i.e.,

[1 + P/ (G As )] P < 0), the following three exchanges were

made in the equations in Box I to obtain those in Box II: (1)

sin for i sinh ; (2) tan for i tanh ; and (3) for i (where:

i = 1). Eqs. (2a) and (2b) are derived in Appendix for quick

reference.

To verify the coefficients given by Eqs. (3)(5), the

numerators and denominators of expressions in Box I must be

differentiated four times in accordance with LHospitals rule

and then apply the P = 0 limit. However, since to carry out

this process is really tedious and cumbersome, the derivations

of Eqs. (3)(5) are presented in the last part of the Appendix.

Four examples that follow show the effectiveness, simplicity

and accuracy of the proposed slope-deflection equations listed

above. Examples 1 and 2 are on the stability analysis of

beamcolumn structures subjected to concentrated forces at

the joints causing tension and/or compression in the members.

Examples 3 and 4 show the application of the proposed method

to plane frames subjected to axial loads (compression and/or

tension).

Example 1. Second-order analysis of a cantilever column

under several loads at the top.

Determine the second-order load-deflection equation of the

cantilever column shown in Fig. 2. Compare the resulting

expressions with those derived by Timoshenko and Gere ([12],

pp. 5 and 13) for a perfectly clamped BernoulliEuler cantilever

column (i.e., = = 1).

pp. 5 and 14) for the particular case of a perfectly clamped

BernoulliEuler cantilever column (i.e., = = 1) subjected

to lateral load Q and overturning moment M, respectively. The

large deflection and post-buckling behavior of a Timoshenko

cantilever column subjected to loadings at the top end is fully

discussed by Aristizabal-Ochoa [11].

Example 2. Stability of a two-span beamcolumn with an

intermediate elastic support.

Determine the buckling load of the two-span continuous

beamcolumn shown in Fig. 3a. Assume that members 1 and

2 are initially horizontal with properties (GAs )1 , (EI)1 , l1 and

(GAs )2 , (EI)2 , l2 , respectively. Also assume that the applied

loads P and P remain always horizontal and are applied at

nodes 2 and 3, respectively. Include the effects of the transverse

stiffness S of the intermediate support 2. Compare the results

with those presented by Timoshenko and Gere ([12], pp. 70

and 99) when the member is made of two EulerBernoulli

beamcolumns.

Solution: From moment equilibrium of beam segments 1 and

2 (Fig. 3b) the following two equations are obtained:

M21 + (P + P) V1l1 = 0

(15)

M23 P + V2l2 = 0.

M21 + M23 = 0.

In this example a = 0 and b = 1 for element 1, and a = 1

Box III.

By making the determinant of the 2 2 matrix of equation

given in Box III the characteristic equation can be determined

and the buckling loads can be calculated. For instance for the

particular case of EI 1 = EI 2 and l1 = l2 = L/2 and S = 0, the

characteristic equation in Box III is reduced to:

the member is a simply supported member made of an

EulerBernoulli beamcolumn (i.e., 1 = 2 = 1) with

compressive loads at mid span (node 2) and at end 3.

Another interesting case is when the value of S becomes

very large making 0, and then the characteristic equation

is reduced to the first term of the equation given in Box III as

the following set of properties (G 1 , E 1 , A1 , As1 , I1 , h) and

(G 2 , E 2 , A2 , As2 , I2 , b), respectively. Also assume that the

applied loads P and Q are always vertical and horizontal,

respectively. Include the effects of the end connections.

of h = b = L, G 1 As1 = G 2 As2 = GAs and E 1 I1 = E 2 I2 =

EI. Notice that: (1) buckling load capacities are affected

significantly not only by the stiffness of beam-to-column

connections but also by the magnitude of the shear stiffness

of the members; and (2) buckling under axial tension forces

is a mirror image of buckling under axial compression forces

for short members with low shear stiffness like multilayer

elastomeric bearings as claimed by Kelly [13]. Further details

of buckling of beamcolumns under axial tension are given by

Aristizabal-Ochoa [10,11,14] and Kelly [13].

lateral sway partially inhibited as shown in Fig. 8a.

The flexural stiffness of beam-to-column and those

of the column-to-foundation semi-rigid connections are

indicated in Fig. 8a. Assume that the vertical and horizontal

members are initially straight each with the following

set of properties [(EI)1 , (GAs )1 , h 1 ], [(EI)2 , (GAs )2 , h 2 ] and

[(EI)3 , (GAs )3 , L], respectively. Also assume that the mode of

buckling is as shown in Fig. 8a and that the applied loads P and

P are always vertical. Include the effects of the stiffness S of

the lateral bracing at node 2. Compare the results with those

presented by Salmon and Johnson [5] for a symmetrical frame

made of EulerBernoulli members when the beam-to-column

connections are rigid (i.e., 1 = 2 = 1) and the bases of the

columns are perfectly hinged (i.e., 3 = 4 = 0) and = 1.

Discuss also the stability of the frame under tension forces.

Solution: In this particular frame there are three unknowns

frame (since it was assumed that 1 = 2 ). Likewise, Eq. (36)

is only capable of capturing the symmetric modes of buckling

of this braced symmetric frame (since it was assumed that

1 = 2 ). Fig. 9 shows the first three eigen-values obtained

using the characteristic equation in Box IV and the first two

obtained using Eq. (34). Therefore, the proposed method is

more powerful, since it is capable of capturing all modes of

buckling including those under axial tension forces (as it was

shown in Example 3).

5. Summary and conclusions

A new set of slope-deflections equations that include the

effects of shear deformations and the shear component of the

applied axial forces (Haringx Model) are derived and then

utilized in the stability and second-order analysis of framed

structures made of Timoshenko beamcolumns with rigid,

semi-rigid, and simple connections. The proposed method is

based on the modified stability functions for beamcolumns

with semi-rigid connections (Aristizabal-Ochoa [10,11]). The

validity and effectiveness of the proposed equations are verified

against four well-documented solutions on elastic stability and

second-order analyses of beamcolumns and plane frames.

The advantages of the proposed method are: (1) the effects

of semi-rigid connections are condensed into two nonlinear

structures with semi-rigid connections. Engineering Structures (2008), doi:10.1016/j.engstruct.2008.02.007

the lateral sway between the ends of the member) for tension or

compression axial loads without introducing additional degrees

of freedom and equations; (2) more accurate than any other

method available and capable of capturing the phenomena

of buckling under axial tension forces. This is particularly

important in short columns like laminated elastomeric bearings

commonly used for seismic isolation of buildings; and (3) the

method is powerful, practical, versatile, and easy to teach.

Analytical studies indicate that shear deformations increase

the lateral deflections of framed structures, and reduce their

critical axial loads. The effects of shear deformations and

second-order P effects must be considered in the analysis

of beamcolumns with relatively low effective shear areas

(like short laced columns, columns with batten plates or with

perforated cover plates, and columns with open webs) or low

shear modulus G (like elastomeric bearing and short columns

made of laminated composites) resulting in members with shear

stiffness GAs of the same order of magnitude as EI/L 2 . The

shear effects are also of great importance in the static, stability

and dynamic behavior of laminated elastomeric bearings used

for seismic isolation of buildings.

Appendix. Derivation of proposed slope-deflection equation (2a) and (2b)

The stability analysis of a prismatic column including

bending and shear deformations (Fig. 1ac) is formulated using

the modified approach proposed by Haringx and discussed by

Timoshenko and Gere ([12], page 134). This approach has been

utilized by Kelly [13] in the analysis of Elastomeric Isolation

Bearings and by Aristizabal-Ochoa [10,11,14] in the stability

analysis of columns, multicolumn systems and frames.

beamcolumn shown in Fig. 1b is:
