Portal and Gable Rigid Plane Frame Analysis

Portal and Gable Rigid Plane Frame Analysis


FRAME is a spreadsheet program written in MS-Excel for the purpose of plane frame analysis of portal and gable rigid plane frames subjected to various types of loading. 

Specifically, the "stiffness matrix" method of analysis is used to determine the unknown joint displacements, support reactions, and member end forces. 
Individual frame members are also analyzed to determine the shears and intermediate moments. Plots of both the shear and moment diagrams are also produced. Also, the frame is drawn for visual confimation of geometry/configuration.
