Abstract : A numerical method for the determination of the sidesway buckling strength of partially yielded steel frames is presented. The method is illustrated with reference to the simple rec tangular frame. Extension of the procedure to other types of frames is possible so long as the applied loads and the frame geometry are symmetri cal and if failure is characterized by sidesway buckling in the plane of the frames. It is believed that the proposed method may also be adapted to the study of the dynamic response of elastic-plastic structures, when the effect of axial force is of considerable importance. (Author)
