Simplified Method for Horizontal Displacement Calculation of Frames at Elevated Temperature
The paper extracts two types of investigated models from frames in fire according to their horizontal deformation characteristics, and provides a simplified method to calculate horizontal deformation of frames, which can be applied to single- and multi-layers frames. Compared with the results by finite element analysis, it shows that the simplified method is a feasible method for the horizontal displacement estimation of frames in fire, and the treatment of the column restraint rigidity for multi-layers frame is appropriate.
