Abstract : This report documents a computer program--CBEAMC--for analysis of general beam-column structures supported and/or loaded by components which interact with displacements of the beam and/or column. Chapter 2 describes the general beam-column system considered and the mathematical model used for analysis; Chapter 3 presents the force-displacement relationships for the mathematical model and describes the computational procedure used for solution; and Chapter 4 provides example solution obtained with the program. The computer program described in this report has been checked to ensure that the results are accurate within the limitations of the procedures employed. However, there may he unusual situations which were not anticipated, and these situations may cause the program to produce questionable results. It is the responsibility of the user to judge the validity of the results. No responsibility is assumed by the author for the design or behavior of any structure based on results obtained with the program.
