Moment distribution

• Simple hand calculation method of analysing

frames by distributing the fixed end moments

according to their relative stiffness.

• Used mainly for analysing sub frames or

continuous beams where a simplified analysis is

required.

• However, most structural analysis is undertaken

using convenient and efficient software

packages.

The stages of moment

distribution are

• Calculate member stiffness

• Calculate distribution factors

• Calculate fixed end moments

• Distribute moments according to stiffness

by an iterative process until balance is

achieved.

Member stiffness.

• Stiffness k of a member, defined as 4 x product

of elastic modulus and its second moment of

area divided by the length ; thus k = 4EI/L

• Greater the stiffness of a member, the more

moment it will attract.

• Stiffness is modified depending on the degree of

fixity at the ends of a member.

Effect of end fixity on stiffness

• Built in at one end and continuous at other k = 4EI/L {element A}

• Continuous at both ends k = 4EI/L {elements B and C}

• Continuous at one end and simply supported at the other k = 0.75(4EI/L) {elements D

and E}

• Built in at one end and simply supported at the other k = 0.75(4EI/L) {elements F}

• Simply supported at both ends k = 0 {element G}

Distribution factors

• Use member stiffness to find proportion of total

stiffness a member provides at a connection.

• Distribution factors enable the proportioning of

the stiffness.

Distribution factors and carry over

• Out of balance moments are redistributed

at the joint using distribution factors.

• As part of re-distribution half of the

unbalanced moment is carried over to

other end of the beam.

Fixed end moments.

• These are the moments at the fixed ends of a

member due to a given vertical load.

• The values for a uniformly distributed load (UDL)

acting on the whole of a span and a point load

are shown. The formulae for other loading

situation can be found in many reference books.

• Sign convention.

• Clockwise moments are considered to be

positive, anticlockwise moments negative.

Moment distribution – Example.

• Three span beam has fixed ends.

• Outer spans are 5.33m in length, and the inner

span 8.0m long.

• Beam is of the same section throughout and so

EI is a constant hence we only require relative

stiffnesses.

• For this purpose assume 4EI = 100, say (4EI

cancels out through all the terms so 100 is

chosen simply for convenience).

• A udl of 36kN/m exists over the beam.

Beam stiffnesses

• Beam stiffnesses = 4EI/L

• Outer span (2 No.) = 100/5.33 = 18.76

• Inner span = 100/8 = 12.5

k = 18.76

k = 12.5

k = 18.76

Step 1. Start at left support.

Distributed moment

= - 85.23 x 0 = 0

Step 2. Next support along

Out of balance moment = (85.23 – 192.0) = -106.77

Distribution to left of support = 106.77 x 0.6 = 64.06

Distribution to right of support = 107.77 x 0.4 = 42.71

Carry over to left = 0.5 x 64.06 = 32.03

Carry over to right = 0.5 x 42.71 = 21.35

-85.23 + 32.03 = -53.02

192 + 21.35 = 213.35

149.29 -53.02

Step 3. Next support along

Out of balance moment = (213.35 – 85.23) = 128.12

Distribution to left of support = -128.12 x 0.4 = -51.25

Distribution to right of support = -128.12 x 0.6 = -76.87

Carry over to left = 0.5 x -51.25 = -25.62

Carry over to right = 0.5 x -76.87 = -38.43

213.15 – 51.25 = 162.10

summation of the individual effects of end

moments and loads.

Shear force diagrams and reactions.

• Using virtual work or similar

• Reactions at A, B, C and D can be found.

• They are the same as the sum of the shear

forces at the ends of the beams spanning onto

the support :

• Reaction at A = 73.4kN

• Reaction at B = 144 + 118.4 = 262.4kN

• Reaction at C = 118.4 + 144 = 262.4kN

• Reaction at D = 73.4Kn

Moment dist. (Practical applications)

• Usually analysis of elements is undertaken using some form of

computer package.

• Using moment distribution on the sub frames in a 10 storey building

would be most unusual these days.

• Computers reduce errors

• Check moments using wL

2

/8, or wL

2

/12 depending on the fixity to

ensure you are not an order of 10 out.

• Engineers call this “having a feel” for the structure. In reality it is

unlikely that any project which is big would not be checked at least

four or five times.

• With a number of load cases, number of computations rapidly

expands.

• Consequently, if at all possible use electronic methods to assist the

analysis.

Redistribution of moments.

• In BS 8110 considerable information on

moment redistribution is included. Very

little is given in the European Code. The

entire clause on this aspect of concrete

design covers about 1.5 pages.

Moment re-distribution - background

• Moment re-distribution is an optional

procedure and may be applied to frames,

sub-frames and continuous beams.

Case for moment re-distribution

• A beam fixed at both ends supports an

ever increasing UDL.

• Bending strengths are equal at the span

and supports.

• If the ultimate bending moment at a

support is reached at a UDL of 30kN/m,

what will be the value of the UDL at

collapse.

Benefits of Moment Re-

distribution.

• A more balanced distribution of moments

results in terms of the magnitude of span

and support moments.

• A reduction in the range of the moment

envelope may occur.

• A corresponding reduction in the

reinforcement requirements leading to

easier placement and fit.

Summary of Code Guidance

• Moments calculated from a linear elastic analysis may be re-distributed in a

continuous beam or slab where the ratio of adjacent spans is between 0.5 and 2.0.

• Equilibrium between internal and external forces must be maintained under all

appropriate combinations of design ultimate load.

• When using high ductility steel (Class B and Class C – Characteristic yield strength

between 400 – 600MPa ) sections may be designed for moments down to 70% of the

maximum moment obtained from a linear elastic analysis at that section for any load

case.

• For normal ductility steel the figure is reduced to 80%.

• When the maximum moment at a support or in the span is reduced the section

should be designed so that :-

• x

is the depth of the neutral axis. The suffix “bal” is used

when the beam is balanced.

Explanation

• Load case which produces the maximum support

moments of 452 and 550kNm does not produce the

maximum span moment of 375kNm.

• If maximum support moments were reduced to the

maximum support moments produced by the maximum

span moment case, namely 358 and 349kNm, we would

produce an identical moment diagram because both load

cases have maximum loading on the span. Identical in

this context means of the same shape and overall value,

but obviously in a different vertical positions.

• Therefore it is possible to reduce the maximum support

moments without increasing the maximum span

moment.

Redistribution in accordance with the code.

• For high ductility steel - code permits 30% reduction in

moment :

• Our example : support moments may become :-

• 452 x 0.7 = 316.4kNm

• 550 x 0.7 = 385kNm

• Problem … Reducing 452 below 358 [value for min max

min case has no advantage. Support moment will

increase.

• Therefore, only reduce LH moment by 21% to 358.

• If we then superimpose the free bending moment from

this load case on support moments of 358 and 385, the

diagram shown below is obtained.

Solving a continuous beam.

• Span above (centre) has been considered in

isolation to explain the process of re-distribution

and to satisfy the conditions given in the code.

• In practice, consider the effects of moment re-

distribution on all spans,

• For example reducing a support moment for a

given load case, not only increases the span

moment in this span but also in the adjacent

span.

550mm deep. Characteristic strength of
