TL;DR: In this article, an advanced analysis method for three-dimensional semi-rigid steel frames accounting for three main nonlinear sources is presented, where the spread of plasticity over the cross section and along the member length is captured by monitoring the uniaxial stress-strain relation of each fiber on selected sections.

TL;DR: In this paper, the free vibration analysis of functionally graded material (FGM) plates resting on the elastic foundation (EF) in the thermal environment is presented, where an ES-FEM combining with the MITC3 is used to improve the accuracy as well as eliminate the shear locking phenomena for the classical triangular element.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: Not only cross-sectional areas of beam and column members but also semi-rigid connection types are variables of the optimization, and the results of some steel frame examples prove that the proposed method is computationally efficient and reliable.

TL;DR: In this paper, the beam-column method was used for nonlinear static analysis of space semi-rigid steel frames and the generalized displacement control method was applied to solve the nonlinear equilibrium equations in an incremental-iterative scheme.
Abstract: This paper presents a numerical procedure based on the beam–column method for nonlinear static analysis of space semi-rigid steel frames. The second-order effects are considered by the use of stability functions obtained from the exact solution of beam–columns under end forces and the inelastic behavior of material are presented by the lumped inelastic concept using yield surface. An independent zero-length element comprising of six translational and rotational springs, of which rotational spring stiffness uses the Kishi–Chen power model, is used to simulate the rigidity of the steel beam-to-column connection. The generalized displacement control method is applied to solve the nonlinear equilibrium equations in an incremental–iterative scheme. The nonlinear response results are compared with those of existing studies to verify the accuracy of the proposed numerical procedure.
