D esign of unbraced building frames using simple connections between beams and columns has been based historically on Type 2 Construction assumptions. Extensive research on the performance of this type of frame has led to the recommendation that Type 2 Construction should be limited to frames less than 10 stories tall, when the lateral load is resisted entirely by the unbraced frame. 1 Moreover, it was shown that the governing limit state in such frames is overall frame instability under combined wind and gravity loads, initiated by extensive plastification of the leeward column stack (Fig. 1). Two common features of this limit state are that girders are loaded to about half their bending capacity and the exterior columns are heavily overloaded in bending. The reason for this inappropriate apportionment of steel to the girders and exterior columns is that the simple connections do possess rotational stiffness and tend to decrease the in-span girder gravity moments by developing a fraction of the fixed-end moments, referred to herein as flexible-end moments. This paper describes a more appropriate model for gravity analysis of frames with flexible beam-to-column connections that enables a simplified design procedure for Type PR Construction.Extensive analytical studies of the fully nonlinear response of flexibly connected frames indicates the overall frame deformations are well explained as a superposition of the two deformed shapes (Fig. 2). The deformations induced by wind are well predicted by the portal method of analysis. The deformations induced by gravity consist of beam bending and reverse curvatures of exterior columns due to the one- sided flexible-end moment from the girders. Simplified Models for Frame Behavior While the portal method is suitable for computing member forces due to wind, one needs to devise a more appropriate model for predicting member forces due to gravity. If one assumes inflection points at mid-heights of exterior columns and no flexure of interior columns (Fig. 3), then one can model interior girders as beams connected through rotational springs into fixed supports. One can model exterior girders as beams connected through a rotational spring to a fixed support at interior ends and to the column stack segment at exterior ends. Note, we only need to develop a math model for the latter subassemblage, because in the limit as we let the columns become infinitely stiff, we obtain the support conditions of the interior girder.From the extensive analytic studies, 1,2,5 all frame failures were in an overall frame sway mode of instability, caused by plastification of the leeward column stack. No frames failed in the classical story shear mode presumed in the popular Jackson-and-Moreland nomographs. Therefore, based on engineering judgment, it is recommended to use an effective length factor of 1.5 for in-plane buckling effects. Use of the nomographs is not recommended. The value of 1.5 recommended here has been tested by analyzing a full range of buildings based on these design assumptions and the ensuing design procedure: all buildings attained their intended load factors without failure.
