NUMERICAL SIMULATION OF BEHAVIOUR OF THIN-WALLED FRAMES SUBJECTED TO STATIC LOADS
In this paper we are discussing the problem of behaviour of frames composed of thinwalled members with bisymmetric open cross section. We present results of computer simulations of behaviour of the frame subjected to torsional loads. The main problem of the simulation is bimoment distribution in the frame node. The new approach using the node superelement is proposed to carry out static analysis of the frame. Numerical examples of the frame analysis subjected to a torque are given.
Keywords:frame, thin-walled members
