Abstract : Results are given for tests on two full-size non-sway structural subassemblages with laterally unsupported columns. All columns were designed with the procedure currently recommended for plastically design structures. The results indicate a substantial post-buckling strength for unbraced columns in a continuous frame system and demonstrate the conservativeness of the current design procedure for this type of column.
