Product Description

Together with the recent publication of both Stability of buildings Parts 1 and 2, and Stability of buildings Part 3, this Guide completes the series. Here, the design concepts, thoughts and detail surrounding the moment frame as a stability element are explained and simplified.

The moment frame can be a complex structural element and this Guide seeks to cover the diverse range of single- and multi-frame types, by drawing on particular situations faced by designers and constructors, and by advising on best practice in terms of analysis; to ensure all aspects are considered and modelled correctly.

As with the other parts of this series, this Guide has been produced to assist structural engineers in the development of their structural schemes — illustrating the choices available both in design (especially analysis) and construction — from in situ reinforced concrete, precast, timber and steel variants. In particular, Part 4 is intended primarily for both structural engineers working for the consulting engineer as well as specialist sub-contractors, at all levels of the industry — illustrating best practice where moment frames are adopted.

The series is an introduction written primarily for graduate design engineers, particularly those approaching a professional review. The content is largely applicable to all buildings, whether permanent or temporary, static or deployable, and is considered to have international relevance.
