BE40: Portal Frame

The problem consists of a rigid rectangular frame, with an imperfection at the columns, subjected to a uniform distributed load across the span and to various single loads, as shown in the figure. For the linear case, the structure is subjected to the uniform load only, whereas for the nonlinear case, all defined loads including the imperfection are considered. The response of the structure is determined and compared to the analytical solution.This is one example of our Verification Manual.
