THE METHOD OF BIMOMENT DISTRIBUTION FOR THE ANALYSIS OF CONTINUOUS THIN-WALLED STRUCTURES SUBJECT TO TORSION

An analytical method for predicting the structural behaviour of thin-walled continuous members subject to torsion is presented, which is based on a direct distribution of bimoments in an analogous manner to the well-known moment distribution method. The analysis produces values of redundant bimoments in a continuous structure from which bimoment and warping torque diagrams can be constructed for use in the design. A numerical example illustrates the proposed method.(a) /TRRL/
