In the first part of the report quite simple analytical methods are used to study the various collapse mechanisms of the frame. The ultimate strength of the individual parts of the frame is determined and the total load carrying capacity is then calculated. The possibility of lateral collapse of the frame is studied, too. A non-liner three-dimensional finite element analysis is also carried out to study more exactly the behaviour of the frame and to check the validity of the simple analytical formulas.
