Abstract : This report documents a computer program--CBEAMC--for analysis of general beam-column structures supported and/or loaded by components which interact with the displacements of the beam and/or column. The report: (a) Describes the general beam-column system considered and the mathematical model used for analysis; (b) Presents the force-displacement relationships for the mathematical model and describes the computational procedure used for solution; and (c) Provides example solutions obtained with the program.
